Specialized seems to have shot itself in the foot somewhat with the Propero II. It’s less than half the price of its high-end S-Works Prevail, yet has many of the same features and much of the same make up of its pro-favoured sibling. We’re not complaining though, as it makes for a great lid at a great price, and weighing just 238g! Easily adjusted to fit with a one-handed dial at the back, the same thin DryLite nylon straps and fixed splitters as the Prevail and excellent ventilation channels make this one of the best.
Price: £70, available from Specialized.
