At speed the cooling is great, even in +25C I can feel the air flowing over my head. (Buzz cut)
In long climbing situasions in hot climate I would go with something with more vents.


I have the shield version for the track because it is the perfect omnium helmet. A bit more aero than road helmet, and (way) more ventilation than a Casco. Perfect compromise, right tool for the job. It seems like the perfect crit helmet as well. And while I agree that it would not be my choice for long climbing in hot weather, I was pleasantly surprised when I wore it during a track event in San Jose last month during a heat wave (high 90's), with no noticeable issues.

The shield is in my opinion a bigger advance than the aero thing, hope someone comes up with a magnetic visor for a vented helmet.


Agree that the shield version is the way to go. While I have yet to see some solid data, I suspect the shield will end up providing nearly as much of the aero benefit (if not more) as the lack of vents. Besides, it looks kind of like a mushroom cap without the shield and pretty badass with one. :thumbup:

I think my packing tape is lighter than a shield. I wonder when Specialized will reveal weight numbers for the Evade.

That's apples and oranges. The aero benefit I was referring to with the shield itself has nothing to do with the vents, rather the cleaner air around the rim of helmet and face -- which, with standard road helmet (or even non-shield Air Attack) and sunglasses, I suspect is particularly turbulent. Again, I have yet to see the data, but I am inclined to bet this is at least as beneficial as the lack of vents.

My large is 310g.

dj, given it's not being marketed as a 'light weight' helmet I'd say weights will come later.

Arts Cycling (USA) are saying they are expecting stock July 30th on their website - so September - November for Au and NZ is a long wait.

Oh and one shop I have spoken to has put the RRP in NZ around the same price as the S Works Prevail - $400! Eeek! And they wonder why people buy shit online from overseas instead

He wouldn't give me a definitive date, but told me he was expecting them to arrive with the 2014 range of bikes.
