When first introduced, the Urge Endur-O-Matic looked different from the rest as it seemed to come from a full-coverage, dirt jumper scene with highly stylized All Mountain modifications. It receives a major update here in its second iteration.
Growing up from its stylized roots, the new version has focused on safety, ventilation and fit. It works better with glasses and goggles as well.

Ventilation: 28 vents, optimization of the Venturi effect with air channels inside the shell before extraction to the rear vents, and orientation of the Butterfly cage blades to facilitate the air penetration inside the shell.
Safety: A smooth shell, with a reduced volume and more coverage on the rear and sides makes a highly protective helmet. Reduction of the rotational impact on the head and brain in case of a crash, reduced hooking risk, higher protection of the neck and occipital, super light and flexible visor for more safety in case of a crash, and use of the Butterfly cage allows a better impact absorption and therefore a better safety.
