Specialized Deviant Carbon Full Face Helmet

This highly ventilated full-face helmet is as breezy as many XC helmets, and thanks to its full carbon fiber shell, it's the lightest in its class at just 899 grams. It's the perfect choice for riders looking for full-face protection, full ventilation, and light weight. These unique characteristics make it ideal for freeride, aggressive XC, or in any conditions that benefit from the extended coverage of a full face design.

Strength:

Lightweight, Durable, well ventilated and sleek design.

Weakness:

Inner shell came loose but specialied warrantied it.

Worth every penny and Specialized stands behind their products. If you bought the carbon then you bought it for bling or color as the regular deviant is just a hair heavier and alot cheaper.

light weight and well ventilated
great fit

Weakness:

none yet.....

Attempted a gnarly downhill section today with a surprise rock garden atround the corner. I almost made it all the way through before flying over the bars and landed face first on the rocks. The helmet took a beating and I walked away fine. Enough said.

Strength:

Very light weight with adjustable sraps at the back so you can get the best fit. I tried a number of other full face helmets but this one realy does feel like a XC type with good vents and vizibility. Cool colour and design with the carbon mesh flashing through the chin guard plus you can remove the lining for washing. Saved my head twice so far so does it's job. Compared to other helmets it's well priced.

Weakness:

The adjustable straps at the rear can be a little catchy on short hair.

Great loking helmet thats light breathable and tough. If you are inclined to do a bit of everything from XC to FR and DH but want one helmet then this is it.
