Interbike 2010 - Urge Helmets

Oct 1, 2010
by Ian Hylands  
Urge's helmet lineup may not be too familiar to a lot of North American riders, which is too bad because I was very happy with the model I tested not too long ago. If you'd like to know more about Urge products, you're in luck. We have Fabien Barel on video to give you all of the details!

Check out the Video,We did a fairly comprehensive review of the Urge Helmets line back in July, so we won't go into too many details here. Instead, we'll let comeback king and World Champ winner Fabien Barel give you the rundown of what's new and exciting.

Fabien Barel talks about Urge helmets:

I liked my Urge Down-O-Matic that I tested in the summer, but they do have a different style that sets them apart from the crowd. What do you think? Have you had saddle time with an Urge lid? Share your thoughts below!

Stay tuned for more Interbike coverage!

 Wow, I really like this. Not only are they 100% unique but they are also very very innovative. And very concious about fit, size, looks, weight and so on. They do require a certain taste...but they are still cool.

 I definitely respect the fact Urge is looking out for their builders and ensuring they're not inhaling toxic material. I also love the idea of showcasing the raw product in the final design. Yes, they certainly are different (not sure if I like or hate the round vents), but the lid market is so monopolized so it's time that manufacturers like Urge and POC shook things up a bit. I think we'll be surprised by how mainstream these designs become in the coming years.

 I've had endur-o-matic for one season now, super light and the sweatband is really efficient keeping sweat out from my eyes, my next helmet will be Urge for sure.

 I was expecting them to massively improve the half lids since the last article on Urge helmets but unfortunately, that hasn't happened and those half lids still look like a nasty joke (referring to the visor). However, the full face design is much better and is clearly much more thought out. My only dislike about them is the vents shaped like little just looks funky and weird. Good effort overall though.

 1:34, Its funny how he wanted to say the plastic was unique but pronounced unique wrong, like another word for neutered.
