- New Lid – Urge Endur-o-matic… any good ?
Had one for a couple of months now. No noticeable difference than a normal lid. On a hot day you still get hot just the same as conventional lids. Less chance of bugs getting in, although, you always seem to get an itch where you can’t get at it. It is very light and comfortable.Posted 5 years ago
Overall, i think it’s very goodbullroarSubscriber
I have had once for about 6 months and can’t fault it. It is no hotter or colder than any other helmet I have worn. It is (perhaps) surprisingly light and comfortable, I wore mine on an 65km all day ride in the Cairngorm recently and it stayed on my head throughout except for food stops. I quite like the fact it comes quite low on the back of the head compared to traditional helmets.Posted 5 years agoexcitable1MemberlungmanSubscriber
I have mine for 9 month or so. Really light and comfy, fits well and there’s no movement at all. I recon they look good and I like the increased protection at the back. But they are HOT so drink more ;-). Recently tryed the trabec as likes the idea of the mips system but on my head it looked just ridiculous, even more than any helmet does, seemed to be really bulky and sat high up.Posted 5 years agorocketmanMember
mrs rocket has the Sabrina Jonnier rep and hasn’t commented on it being hot but then again she doesn’t sweat much
Like all helmets without a retention system it either fits or it doesn’t. You really need to try one on the sizing is on the small side and for people with round heads.
Do not talk yourself into making it fit you will regret itPosted 5 years agorobinlaidlawMember
I’ve got one. It replaced a Giro Xen. The Urge fits me really well and is the comfiest helmet I’ve had. It might be a tiny bit hotter when you are moving really slowly, i.e if you need to push or carry at any point, but once you are moving at all it ventilates amazingly well and is just as cool as the Giro.Posted 5 years agodantsw13Member
I am a sweaty git, and got one for my Alps trip this year – no sweaty dribbles in my eyes at all!!. I have a big head – the large size with the smallest pads works really well. The helmet hugs the head, and holds position for headcam/headlight really well.
I got a really cheap deal on the Sabine Jonnier (sp?) women’s version. I covered the silly balloon d
Graphics with black heli tape, and now I have an all black stealth version!!
Buy online, if it doesn’t fit, send it back!!
It does also give significantly better coverage on the back of the head than my old helmet, and is very light!Posted 5 years agoexcitable1Member
Thanks for all the advice chaps & chapesses !
Been up to Leisure Lakes to try before I buy and bought for a nice discounted price (£69.99). I have to say that it is the most comfortable lid I have ever tried. I tried a few others while I was there and there was no comparrison.
Couple of trivial bonuses… the grey middle section is the same colour as my car and it matches my uniform…..
