    Comments:

    During a couple long, hot climbs this summer on the California back roads I felt so hot that I wanted to take my helmet off to feel cooler. Instead, I went to Mike's Bikes to find a better ventilated helmet with better sweat pads. The Specialized Prevail caught my attention right away, it's very light, the fit is easy to adjust and it has a lot of sweat pads inside. I tried it on and walked around and immediately felt how great it ventilated. I bought it. On my first ride, it felt like I almost didn't have a helmet on. It feels extremely light on my head and I feel air flowing all around my skull. I've had it for over a month now and have ridden 4.5 rides that ended in 97 degree temps. It provides great ventilation, the chin straps are thin and don't get soggy, the sweat pads dry quickly (this is great when you take a break and put the helmet back on), and although I still get sweat in my eyes on long climbs with no breeze, it's much, much less than my other helmet. Overall this is a fantastic helmet for hot temps.

    Light Helmet Great Ventilation

          Wow helmets have come a long way. I remember when they consisted of 4 leather straps or big chunks of styrofoam. This helmet is a little lighter than my last helmet but the ventilation is a big improvement, It's taken away my last "argument" for not wearing a helmet namely they are too hot. I would bet that this lid cools the head better than no helmet at all. Highly recommend this product.

                The S-works Prevail helmet is not only great looking, but incredibly comfortable. Even after hours of riding, there is nothing that becomes uncomfortable about the helmet. For the ladies, the adjustable back of the helmet is perfect for using with pony tails.

                      This is the helmet of choice. The lightest helmet I have ever ridden. It looks great, keeps the head ventilated. Never leave home without it.

                        The fit of the helmet is excellent. It is superlight, has incredible ventilation, and the chin strap is barely noticeable. This is by far the best helmet I've owned. I recently crashed on wet roads doing 30+ mph and my bike and body got pretty torn up, but my head was not affected at all. The helmet broke apart like it is supposed to and stayed exactly where it is supposed to on my head throughout the wreck. We buy helmets to protect us and this one is absolutely the best both while riding and when hitting the pavement. I bought another one same day.

                          I had this helmet 3 weeks. Crashed, hit the back of my head on road at 15mph. Got up, rode home, found back of helmet was split in back. It truly saved my life.

                            The Specialized helmets fits nearly every head shape (everyone I know has tried it and loved it) and is super comfortable. Add that to the fact that the Prevail is sooooooo light it is like wearing a baseball hat - that light and that comfortable! Worth ever penny.

                              Purchased a Giro Prolight. Very light but never comfortable. Crashed and cracked the Giro. Chose Specialized Prevail for replacement. Owned a Specialized before & was always happy with the Specialized comfort/fit. The Specialized Prevail is nearly as light as the Prolight but the comfort & airflow are far superior. Highly recommended.
