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 with ANGi, the lightest and most ventilated extended coverage helmet available.

The new ANGi Crash Sensor gives you and your loved one's peace of mind like never before - when combined with Specialized's iOS or Android app, the sensor will detect a crash and send a text message to specified contacts in your phone. It also synchronises with their app and STRAVA® to provide GPS-based activity tracking.

Specialized teamed up with MIPS researchers to introduce MIPS SL—a new, ultra-light, and supremely comfortable version of MIPS that's available exclusively on Specialized helmets. With MIPS SL, Specialized have integrated MIPS technology within the helmet padding itself. MIPS SL's minimalist "watchband" attachment system provides 10 to 15 millimetres of rotation in every direction and offers the same brain protection benefits as other versions of MIPS, while also ushering in a new level of comfort and weight savings.

Starting with protection, the Ambush boasts a significant amount of extended coverage, Energy Optimized Multi-Density EPS foam that manages the energy from impacts effectively, and an Aramid-Reinforced Skeleton that provides extra structure for the foam. Even with the added protection, though, it fits comfortably with Specialized's low profile and fully integrated 'Mindset 360' fit system.

With its five height positions, this system provides unmatched adjustment, while an integrated dial allows for on-the-fly tinkering. The Ambush also keeps you cool with 4th Dimension Cooling System's massive vents and exhaust ports, so you don't have to worry about overheating - even on the hottest days.

Finally, Specialized have included a micro-indexing visor that quickly adjusts positions and has plenty of room for goggle storage. Combined, these features put the Ambush well in front of the competition.

Remote Regions

You might have noticed a lot of our services are limited to MAINLAND UK, sadly this is because both our couriers either do not offer services to these regions or they charge surcharges to offer any service at all which we cannot absorb into our costs.

The good news is that for the time being at least the Royal Mail is bound by universal service so no matter where in the UK you live, if your order can be shipped with a Royal Mail service then we can offer this as we would for the rest of the country. Note however that the Royal Mail do have clauses to exclude remote regions from their delivery guarantees for Special Delivery® services.

Easy Returns

If an item doesn't fit or isn't quite what you expected then simply fill out the enclosed returns form and return your unwanted items to us within 28 days for a full refund, we'll accept orders returned to us after this period with refunds made via gift vouchers for use against future orders. Unfortunately, we're unable to cover the costs of returning items to us.

For further information please see our Refund Policy for further details.

Stock Availability

Unlike our competitors, many of which don't have a considerable proportion of the products they list online available in stock in their own warehouses, these stores depend on suppliers being able to provide products quickly on demand which in these trying times is a bit of a gamble.

For this reason, we now only sell products we have in stock and know we can provide rather than just 'SIM' feeding product availability from suppliers.

Secure Delivery

For security purposes, we reserve the right to cancel shipments to forwarding centres, PO Boxes, and locker boxes. For some items such as bikes and electric scooters, these can only be delivered to the billing address, no change of address or in-transit redirection is permitted for any consignments.

Bike Delivery

Shipping is FREE of charge on bikes (or orders containing bikes) over £499 within Mainland UK - services are available for remote UK regions, see the chart above for details.

We aim to have all the bikes we stock pre-built and available for immediate purchase online and for in-store collection, once you have ordered a bike from us one of our fully trained Cytech mechanics will package your bike into one of our custom-built boxes.

These extra-large boxes allow us to ship most bikes fully assembled but before we do so our mechanics will carry out a PDI (pre-delivery inspection) on the bike to ensure that before it's prepared for shipping everything is set up correctly, e.g., brakes, gear indexing etc.

Upon receiving your bike, you will simply need to take your new bike out of the box, turn and tighten the handlebars and fit one of the pedals (if your bike comes with pedals). In some instances, such as for road bikes, you may also need to attach the handlebars as they're too wide to simply be rotated so they'll be secured to the side of the frame with zip ties.
