Woah! Was that branch there last month? You can’t control everything on the trail, but you can control who you ride with. Ride with Specialized ANGi and give your loved ones some peace of mind.

ANGi—a ride tracker, crash detector, and safety beacon that protects you before, during, and after a crash.

FAQ ANGi + Mips


  • What does ANGi stand for?

ANGi stands for ANgular G-Force indicator.

  • What does ANGi measure?

The device measures both rotational forces and direct impacts. ANGi can detect dangerous forces that affect the brain even when the helmet does not sustain an impact.

  • What sensors are in ANGi? Is it GPS?

ANGi contains an accelerometer and a gyro for measurement of linear and rotational forces. GPS is done using the phone/app that the device is connected to.

  • What does ANGi-Equipped mean?

All ANGi-equipped helmets ship with the ANGi unit attached to the Headset fit system.

ANGI-Equipped Models:

Road: Evade II, Prevail II, Propero 3

Mountain: Ambush, Ambush Comp

  • What does ANGi-Ready mean?

ANGi-Ready helmets come with location to attach aftermarket ANGi sensor on the Headset fit system.

ANGI-Ready Models:

Fitness: Align

Mountain: Tactic 3

  • Is ANGi waterproof?

Yes, ANGi is waterproof rated at IPx7. This means that the sensor is waterproof when immersed for 30 minutes to a depth of 1 meter.

  • How long does the battery last?

Under normal conditions and regular riding, the battery should last 6 months.

  • Does a rider have to run the Ride App for ANGi to work?

Yes, a rider must start the Ride App at the start of the ride for ANGi to work. The Ride App can run in the background for the duration of the ride.

  • How does the time-based safety alert work? If I don’t have cell service, how does my phone get the call out?

This is a cloud-based system, messages are delivered by our servers, not the phone. When a rider set-ups a time-based alert, they are effectively telling the servers that they should be connected back to them via call phone by a certain time. If the servers don’t “see” the rider, an alert message is sent to the emergency contact, along with the rider’s last known location.

  • If a rider crashes when outside of cell service, how does the emergency notification send?

ANGi cannot communicate in this scenario. That is precisely why we created the time -based safety alert feature. If a rider is planning to ride somewhere with known poor cell coverage, they should create a time alert as a back-up plan should something unfortunate happen.

  • How does MIPS work?

The MIPS system is a low friction layer allows a sliding motion of 10-15mm, in all directions. This reduces the rotational motion transmitted to the brain during impact.

  • What is our MIPS SL Technology?

Specialized worked with MIPS to design a new generation MIPS system that provides the benefits of MIPS but minimizes the effects on overall helmet weight and ventilation. On high end helmets we developed a system that combines top level safety together with ultimate performance.

The MIPS SL system truly meets the needs of the high-performance rider, both in terms of ventilation and comfort (weight).
