Product Details

Specialized Tactic 3 - MTB Trail Helmet

The Specialized Tactic Helmet is one of our best selling mountain bike trail lids, thanks to its superior HairPort II SL fit and 4th Dimension ventilation.

'Trail lid' means that the Tactic 3 offers more rear skull coverage than a more road bike-oriented helmet, plus it is noticeably better ventilated via its wider, more open vents, as required on longer climbs. These benefits make the Specialized Tactic mountain bike helmet equally fit for commuting and recreation riding.

  • Trail-style - the Specialized Tactic Helmet offers extra skull coverage
  • The fact that it sits lower down the back of the head makes for a helmet that fits more securely than one that's perched higher
  • The full-size colour-coordinated visor boasts an easy-on/easy-off aFIX visor attachment
  • The HairPort II SL fit system's six height positions and rear adjustment dial make it easy to achieve a perfect fit that’s always secure, never over-tight
  • Specialized's Tri-Fix strap system makes it easier to adjust this helmet's straps to achieve the best possible fit
  • Tri-Fix means the strap guides are fixed in place on each side, just below ear lobe level so they will never require adjustment.
  • The only strap that can be adjusted is the one that goes through the chin buckle
  • With only one buckle to loosen or tighten, the Specialized's Tri-Fix strap system makes this helmet much easier to set up compared with regular helmets with multiple strap adjustment points
  • Tri-Fix guides also also do a great job of keeping the straps in adjustment and preventing them twisting
  • These Tri-Fix guides also help keep the straps properly adjusted so they won't require re-tightening so frequently
  • In-moulded shell - the outer microshell and the inner EPS foam shell are fused together (not taped) to create a tougher lid that enhances the helmet's integrity and longevity
  • With its 21 extra wide vents, the Tactic Helmet boast Specialized's 4th Dimension Cooling System
  • 4th Dimension is so called because it has 4 elements:
  • The Airport allows air to enter the helmet and cool the forehead.
  • In-Line Vents (one behind the other) encourage air to flow over the head.
  • - via Deep Internal Channeling -
  • - then out through the Rear Exhaust Ports
  • 370g - based upon weighing a medium Specialized Tactic Helmet (inc visor) at Bike Co-op HQ
  • Sizes: S (51-56cm), M (55-59cm), L (59-63cm)

Here's how Specialized describe their Tactic 3 Helmet

Trail riding is more aggressive than ever, so you need a helmet that gives you the confidence to take on downhill runs on a five-inch-travel trail bike. Say hello to the Tactic 3. It has protection covered in spades, while ventilation is handled by our 4th Dimension Cooling System that takes some of the sting out of climbing. Keeping in this spirit, the Tactic 3 has been redesigned to be lighter than ever, all while keeping its pedigree of protection. This means that you get a tried-and-true trail helmet that gets you to the top of a climb and protects you on the way down.

  • Versatile HairPort SL II fit system, with six height positions and a micro-adjustable dial, makes it easy to adjust the fit
  • 4th Dimension Cooling System optimizes ventilation
  • In-moulded shell improves strength and reduces weight
  • Extended rear coverage for added protection in technical, all mountain terrain
  • Full-size visor with easy on/off aFIX visor attachment
  • Tri-Fix web splitter for improved comfort and ease of strap adjustments
