The Specialized Propero 3, which takes many of its design cues from Specialized’s top-end Prevail helmet, now features MIPS and ANGi (Angular and G-Force Indicator).

The latter is a helmet-mounted sensor that connects to your smartphone and measures forces transmitted to the helmet in the event of a crash.

If you’re okay, simply stop the 90-second timer or it will send a message to your emergency contact. It can also let them know you’re out for a ride and track in real time. Best of all there’s no annual subscription.

The EPS shell has an internal skeleton that allows for larger vents while retaining its strength.

Up front, the large Mega Mouthport and front vents pull air in, and over the head flow is good, thanks to internal channelling, before it’s pushed out through the six rear exhaust vents.

The HairPort FSL ll fit system offers four height positions and the perfect cradle tension is easily achieved with the rear micro-adjust dial. The side straps aren’t adjustable but the Tri-fix web splitter worked well.

I loved the Specialized 4X DryLite webbing that won’t stretch out with sweat or water.

The combination of superb safety features, ride performance, ease of use and good looks makes this a top player.
