[ad3] Urge Bike just sent over details on their new DH helmet. Just recently, they updated the French Brand updated their enduro offering as well. Nice to see new things coming from their camp.
Outer shell and EPS
Our DH helmet shares the same outer shell and EPS as our Archi Enduro model, except at the rear and regarding the chin guard.
Our outer shell in composite material is a unique blend of glass fibre (80%) and natural linen fibre (20%), mixed with a thermosetting resin.
This material is meticulously laid out in order to obtain a multi-axial fibre with outstanding benefits that guarantees a better spread and diffusion of the shock waves more on the helmet than on the skull.
Our performances during the crash tests highly exceeded the legal requirements for the different norms (CE 1078 – CPSC 1203 – AS/NZS 2063) and outperform ABS, traditional and carbon fibres shells.
The focus was put on the chin guard in particular to obtain the best ratio between rigidity and necessary distortion to absorb impacts. The essential wide opening of the chin guard, reinforced by a metallic grid, benefits from a high density polyurethane upper part. The obtaining of the ASTM F1952 norm, the only one that tests the chin guard, validates without a doubt the safety features highly sought-after.
The structure of the EPS has been designed to complete the unique features of the outer shell. Thanks to this exclusive combo, our helmet is lighter than the existing carbon top of the range models. We have created one of the safest helmets in this category with a weight around 1.050 kg making it among the lightest.
Made of polyethylene, it is able to deform in case of an impact and exceeds the requirements of the norms.
It is adjustable and fixed using aluminium screws.
The Double D buckle is our choice for ergonomics, safety and comfort.
10 vents allow good ventilation in any circumstances, even at low speed. Ventilation on the front of the helmet is particularly unique, thanks to the specific design of the chin guard and to the wide frontal vents.
Fitting and inner padding
The inner padding is entirely detachable and washable.
It was designed for optimal comfort and retention. The dual-density cheek pads were particularly elaborated to obtain a perfect fit especially around the jaw bones. The one-piece pad brings excellent fit and comfort.
The “bamboo treated” material used targets a triple efficiency: antibacterial, moisture wicking and hypoallergenic.
The wide opening aims at guarantee an optimal field of view, compatible with all goggles on the market, even the wider ones. Lateral “gripping” pads and the ergonomics of the helmet allows for a perfect position of the goggle strap.
Our helmet is specifically designed to allow the rider to use a brace without inhibiting to the rider’s movement or comfort.
This helmet is a top of the range model that benefited of the highest attention to details in its design, to the smallest of details, and in particular in the choice of the high quality and durable materials.
