At Christmas, I decided that it was time to treat my boy to a new helmet. He’s much cooler than me, so I wanted to get him something that looked great with a slight “yoof” edge to it. The Urge Enduromatic helmet definitely fitted the bill.
Why Would You Buy An Urge Enduromatic?
You’d hate to become a clone, right? This helmet is available in a wide range of colours & finishes, so it’s unlikely that you’re going to be embarrassed out on the trails. Make sure you get the right size, because the only adjustment you have is a bit of extra padding that’s supplied in the box. Having said that, the way this helmet is built means that it seems to fit really well – both my son and I found it comfortable.
The lid looks like it could do with more vents and we’ve not put through a long summer day’s riding yet, so we’ll let you know in future how it bears up to Lancashire’s sunnier days! However, the vents that are there work fantastically well, using venturi physics to draw air across your head as you mash up the mud on your mountain bike.
Do You Own One?
If you have one of these helmets, let me know what you think of it, eh?
