UPDATE: Mitja Madon's spectacular shot of Tadej Humar hanging it out high above the river was this week's runaway winner, and a worthy recipient of the Down-o-matic fullface helmet as well as the Endur-o-matic halfshell from Urge Bike Products!
The Down-o-matic features a sleek shell size and pure design similar to the Endur-o-matic. The big vents at the front are round, in order to allow a maximum of fresh air to reach the rider, while the composite fiber construction allows an unmatched weight / protection ratio. The interior is made of super comfortable soft, removable and washable pads. As featured on its little brother, the ABS visor is super light and vented. The Down-o-matic is suitable for DH and Freeride use.
Inspired by DH and Enduro riding but suitable for all disciplines, with optimized coverage for protection, the Endur-o-matic features 8 round vents (30mm diameter) that are positioned in order to create a Venturi effect, where the air flow is regulated by internal channels. The weight of the visor is almost weightless and the material is flexible, which helps prevent injuries in the event of a crash. Like on the Down-o-matic, comfort is guaranteed by soft, removable and washable pads. The frontal pad features a very simple and unique innovation: the “Gangsta pad” protrudes from under the shell (around 15mm) which allows it to be in contact with the air while riding, so this part of the pad is constantly dried by air and can continue to absorb sweat. The Endu-o-matic is suitable for Enduro, All Mountain, Hard XC, Single speed and City use.
