The Archi Enduro was a revolution in itself: it was simply the first Enduro race helmet available on the market.Now Urge have moved things on a notch further with this new rr version
Urge helmets have always stood out from the crowd. With one foot in Denver, Colorado (USA) and the other foot in Cogolin, Provence (France), they are clearly established and deep-rooted into these two historical and emblematic MTB spots. Urge have riding on their doorsteps, a huge number of brand ambassadors and a passion to produce innovative protection with not only some clever design details but also a strong environmental slant.
The original Archi Enduro offered the same protection as Urge’s DH helmet, the Down-o-matic but with an optimal level of comfort thanks to its reduced weight, high breathability and shorter back, allowing the rider to comfortably wear a backpack.
Now Urge have taken the original Archi-Enduro RR design and given it a serious make-over. Here’s what they have to say about this new lid:
Are you Race Ready? We are!
At Urge, if there’s a discipline that really talks to our hearts and for which we think we have expertise and legitimacy, it is for sure Enduro racing.
Let’s be clear straight away, we are very proud of our brand new ARCHI ENDURO R.R.
ARCHI still because it was the first full face helmet dedicated to Enduro racing.
R.R. because its evolution had one goal in mind: a Ready to Race helmet.
Our belief is that Enduro is the ultimate racing discipline. In its maturity it combines the speed and precision of a top “gravity” racer with tactics and patience to continue at that pace through several longer stages.
We used the feedback from years of experience of EWS riders from the Canyon and Rocky – Urge teams, with top riders like Fabien Barel and Flo Nicolai. Our first priority was to satisfy their needs in terms of safety.
This was the starting point to create the ultimate enduro racing helmet.
We then had to work hard, especially to develop a unique fiber in order to obtain a highly safe helmet while being light enough to be worn during the long racing days. The comfort, fitting, and ventilation were also high on the priority wish list.
The result is here, a design fundamentally driven by the demands of top level enduro racing.
This helmet is the helmet any enduro racer can wish for, it will answer all his needs and it’s the result of our convictions when pushed to their limits.
