Airnet MIPS Helmet
In old-meets-new fashion, the Specialized Airnet MIPS Helmet has a heritage-inspired design combined with the latest technology in the cycling world. Specialized based the Airnet's original concept off of leather hairnets that cyclists wore before helmets existed, in terms of aerodynamic lightness and comfort. As for protection, this Airnet features MIPS (Multi-Directional Impact Protection System), which is a low-friction liner that rotates independently around the helmet for increased impact protection at angled crashes.
To boost comfort, the Airnet features the Specialized 4th Dimension Cooling System that combines large vents through internal channels that quickly spit out unwanted heat. The vents also include grippers to secure eyewear storage simply and easily. Everything that isn't a vent is lined with Drirelease merino wool for maximum thermal regulation, moisture management, and odor control. The micro-dial fit system ensures a quick-and-easy adjustment, while you can count on the chin strap webbing to not stretch out.

- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Size Bought:
- 6' 1"
A lot of considerate touches in this helmet. The fitment is spot-on and the adjuster clicks positively and holds firm. Flows a ton of air. Feather light and all touch-points are comfortable. This is more helmet than I thought I was going to buy, but I'm glad I did.

It fits my big head!
- I've used it several times
This helmet is light, adjustable and fits my big head. Good ventilation. I recommend it. I like the matte black. It does not make my head look smaller though.
