New helmet from Urge, well a new and updated version of their highly successful Endur-O-Matic… the Endur-O-Matic 2. Here’s the full press release and info:
The Endur-O-Matic has been the statement helmet of our brand since 2009, the one that everything stemmed from.
It came as a real bombshell at a time when MTB helmet production held no surprises. It made a huge impression on a generation of MTB riders, but the time has now come for it to get a facelift, probably even some major surgery in certain aspects. Of course it retains some of the lines and codes of its famous big brother, but also plenty of enhancements aimed at making this helmet able to take on the challenges that face any real MTB rider.
100% new, the 2016 Endur-O-Matic 2 offers more protection, more ventilation and comfort, more eco friendliness, but remains as classy and unique as always.
Available in shops from December 2015 and in limited quantity in blue-white-red only.
Other colours available in March 2016.
