Specialized S-Works Evade
$250, Specialized.com
The draw: All-around performance

As the helmet of choice for cycling super-sprinter Mark Cavendish and many Ironman pros racing in Hawaii, the Evade has proven itself as a versatile option suited for many different riding styles. Its truncated tail sacrifices a few grams of drag compared with full blown aero helmets, but the relatively familiar shape and effective venting make it a good choice for any ride where speed matters—racing or training.
