Featured Review

“A good enduro or all-mountain helmet.”

The Good: Light, looks good, ventilates well, doesn't interfere with a backpack.

The Bad: Half-foam mouthpiece, doesn't look like it'd hold up in a really gnarly face-first crash.

Overall Review:

First off, I bought this helmet because I wanted a lightweight, breathable full-face that I could use as my one and only helmet. I ride mostly all-mountain and technical trails, but also do some dirt jumping and full-on downhill.  After a couple months of use, I have had no issues with the helmet.

Climbing - Though it is still a full face, the Urge breathes relatively well and it's light weight is noticeable.  It allows a decent amount of peripheral vision, and the highly adjustable visor can be slid up so that it doesn't limit vision.

Impact - I've only crashed a few times with this helmet, but so far it has held up nicely.  The flexible visor is plenty strong, and didn't snap even though I once landed directly on it.  My one worry is with the half-foam mouthpiece,  it doesn't seem like it would be able to handle a full-bore, face first crash.  But of course, what is gained in breathability is lost in protection.

Overall, the Archi-Enduro is a great helmet for a trail rider that is insecure with a open-face helmet, and doesn't mind giving up some breathability.  Though I wouldn't suggest it for regular downhill or freeride, the Urge is a versatile helmet that will benefit the shredding enduro rider.
