On Test: Urge Endur-o-Matic hemet

Enduro-Matic helmet from Urge

I’m testing out the Endur-o-Matic helmet from France’s Urge. Targeted toward enduro, all-mountain, cross country, and urban riders. Standout features are the ultralight and flexible visor (designed to flex rather than break in a crash), “gangsta” padding to wick away perspiration, and the surprisingly effective “internal venturi effect” cooling vents. 2 sizes, ~ 320gr. $100-110 retail.

This is a comfortable helmet that isn’t too bulky. It’s unexpectedly light, and the styling is a lot different from the rest of the market. I’ll be using this helmet primarily for urban riding: commuting and playing around on “my kandy raver” BMX mutant.


I know why they do it, but the two helmet size system has never worked out for me.

I’m a perfect medium, give or take the length and attitude of my hair. One day, everything looks and fits great, the next I’m just barely cramming it onto my head.

see now, i’m a medium-maybe-large, so I’m pretty happy with this helmet. Though for a L/XL, it’s not that big.
