Utilizing the existing Prevail helmet platform to create a helmet that maintains the design aesthetic and improves on all features. Primary focus was given to performance and aerodynamics.
Wind Tunnel Testing
Multiple revisions, shapes, contours, and profiles were tested in both the Specialized Bicycles and University of Washington wind tunnels to optimize the aerodynamics of the S-Works Prevail 2. Special attention was made to both optimize the aerodynamics, but also allow for maximum ventilation to keep riders cool during low speed climbing.
Shape refinements and adjustments were made using a combination of 3D prints and hand clay modeling to ensure form language and contours maintained the highest level of refinement while also providing adequate protection and fit.
