Specialized helmet amnesty

Trade in your current helmet and get a new Specialized model at a discounted price

Specialized are this month offering you the opportunity to hand in your old bike helmet and get a new Specialized one at a reduced price.

The helmet you hand in can be from any brand and in any condition. Then you can buy a new Specialized S3, S3 Women’s or Prevail at much lower than normal price.

The S3 and S3 Women’s models usually retail at £110 but you can get each for £60 during this promotion.

The Prevail will set you back £85 rather than the usual £160.

Shiny Boy Dave Arthur reviewed the Prevail here on last year and say, “If you’re after a seriously light, well ventilated and comfortable helmet with easy adjustment, you won't go far wrong with the Prevail.”


He also said it was Specialized’s best ever helmet.

There are conditions, of course. You have to do this with a participating dealer and the offer is valid in store only while stocks last. The promotion ends on 30 June.

For more info go to the Specialized website or contact your local Specialized dealer.
