Urge have a habit of making helmets that split opinion. Whether you personally love them or hate them, they have never made a design that just fades into the background and for that you should salute them. In these parts we fall into the love side of things, they've really got under our skin and with this Realjet they might have just made their best-looking helmet yet.
They're only making 400 of these, they will feature Urge's great pad removal system, weigh 814g and be available from April. On the streets they will set you back 249 Euros, if you can get to one fast enough...here's a rough translation of their description:
Urge's designer Zoobab likes to follow his ideas. In June 1982 he took part in his first ever BMX race in Lunel, France with his brothers Gilles and Jean Rene. It was only few months after discovering the sport in an issue of BMX Action, brought back from the US by a friend. The Real Jet is a symbol of Urge's catch phrase: 'Driven by our roots.' From its BMX vintage inspiration from the 70's and 80's, to the multiple uses you’ll have with it today, you can admit it is super classy! Your roots, like ours, allow you to proudly wear this superb new creation from our 'Maitre Zoobab' Mother Zoobab, at a dirt track, a bike park, an all-mountain session or anything you feel like…you decide…be driven by your roots.
