Specialized launches 'coolest' ever helmet: S-Works Prevail II Vent

New Prevail II Vent helmet also features MIPS system which offers extra movement for added comfort

Following on from the launch of its Vent shoe last summer, Specialized has released a new version of its Prevail cycling helmet with a focus on keeping a cool head.
