When ripping down the trail, the last thing you need to worry about is if your helmet will protect you in a crash. Then again, you don't want to be stuck wearing a full-face on every trail ride. This is why Specialized created the Ambush Comp - a lightweight, extended coverage helmet at a wallet-friendly price.
Starting with protection, the Ambush Comp boasts a significant amount of extended coverage and a single density foam that's been reinforced by a Composite Matrix. The reason behind this is that it manages the energy from impacts more effectively. Even with the added protection, though, it fits comfortably with Specialized's low profile and fully integrated Mindset 360 fit system.
And with its five height positions, this system provides unmatched adjustment, while an integrated dial allows for on-the-fly fine-tuning. The Ambush Comp also keeps you cool with Specialized's unique 4th Dimension Cooling System's massive vents and exhaust ports, so you don't have to worry about overheating - even on the hottest days.
Specialized's new ANGI Crash Sensor gives you and your loved one's peace of mind like never before - when combined with their iOS or Android app, the sensor will detect a crash and send a text message to specified contacts in your phone. It also syncs with the app and STRAVA® to provide GPS-based activity tracking.
Finally, Specialized has included a micro-indexing visor that quickly adjusts positions and has plenty of room for goggle storage. Combined, these features put the Ambush Comp well in front of the competition.
Following a cycling tour around Europe in 1974, Mike Sinyard returned to the U.S. to found a company to use the components he acquired whilst in Europe, but this company soon began designing its own – that company was Specialized.
