Making an early bid for this season's best all-round road helmet, the Specialized Propero has received a total makeover, emerging sleeker and faster than its three previous editions.

Rather than redesigning the Propero update from the ground up, the Propero 4 is, in fact, a mash-up of two all-time favorites. Specialized says it took the aerodynamic qualities of the S-Works Evade 3 and the ventilation characteristics of the latest S-Works Prevail 3 and blended them together to create this all-new Propero.

North American Editor

Cycling Weekly's North American Editor, Anne-Marije Rook is old school. She holds a degree in journalism and started out as a newspaper reporter — in print! She can even be seen bringing a pen and notepad to the press conference.

Originally from The Netherlands, she grew up a bike commuter and didn't find bike racing until her early twenties when living in Seattle, Washington. Strengthened by the many miles spent darting around Seattle's hilly streets on a steel single speed, Rook's progression in the sport was a quick one. As she competed at the elite level, her journalism career followed, and soon she became a full-time cycling journalist. She's now been a cycling journalist for 11 years.
