The S-Works Evade 3 shares the same forward facing aero-fast shell concept, if not it's execution,
of it's predecessor, as well as a new MIPS system. The port design feeds into a crucial new cooling and exhaust system, ensuring the 3rd generation is a truly superior helmet overall. As a result, faster gets cooler as the most aero road helmet in the peloton now breathes better. The S-Works Evade 3 was reinvented from the inside out to cool better, making it the fastest choice for more stages and those long hard rides when you not only want to feel fast and efficient, but stay as cool and comfortable as possible.
Specialized's commitment to developing the best helmets possible is reflected in our high-performance team composed of engineers, product developers, designers, manufacturing
technicians, and quality control specialists. When a rider chooses to wear a Specialized helmet, they show the ultimate trust- and the team in Morgan Hill takes that responsibility seriously. As an integral part of their development process, all aero testing is done in their own own "Win Tunnel". To this end, in the team has long obsessed over aerodynamics as well as challenging conventional ideas around impact energy distribution and
helmet construction. When all of the concepts come together, testing in the tunnel and on the road with the worlds best cyclists is complete, best-in-class design performance is the result.
For the S-Works Evade 3 design group, the watchwords to know were "Diffusion Cooling". The helmet was reconceived to deliver increased ventilation by 10% over it's very effective predecessor while maintaining its leading aero performance. This innovation breakthrough was achieved through extensive Computational Fluid Dynamics and Win Tunnel testing, with a new entry ventilation port system up front and ultimately in a rear “diffuser” exhaust that helps minimize drag and employs larger vents to increase ventilation and airflow throughput with less overall resistance. Excess heat and moisture are expelled more quickly and efficiently, and while a 10% increase in overall ventilation may not seem like a major advance, the application of the system leads to a more impressive improvement in real world riding on hotter days- meaning you can enjoy the aerodynamic efficiency and resulting faster speeds more often, with less focus on the temperature on the day.
The innovation and effectiveness doesn't stop there, nor does the drive for the best safety measures. The S-Works Evade 3 features the release of ultralight and supremely comfortable MIPS AirNode technology. This system is integrated directly into the helmet padding, with a sleek low friction layer designed to dissipate rotational forces as only MIPS can. With Specialized’s proprietary development work, the team added perforations to maximize breathability, performance, comfort, and weight savings. Of course, as with any helmet, proper fit and adjustment is the foundation of all safety aspects. In conjunction with an improved Mindset fit system featuring shell depth adjustment, the superior Tri-Fix WebSplitter with lighter, more flexible straps combines to deliver the best fit possible. Along with the standard CPSC safety rating, the S-Works Evade 3 also has received a 5-Star Virginia Tech® Helmet Rating, from the most experienced independent helmet safety lab in the United States. Ride comfortably, cooler, with great confidence while wearing the sleek and impressive Specialized S-Works Evade 3 Helmet.
