The enduro innovators are at it again. Having originally crafted the first enduro specific full face, today Urge announces all new Archi Enduro R.R. helmet. Combining what they learned with the original Archi Enduro along with using input from EWS specialist Fabien Barel and Flo Nicolai, the new Archi Enduro R.R. is said to have better ventilation and a lighter weight, yet still meets and exceeds multiple safety certifications.

Urge Announces Brand New Archi Enduro R.R. Full Face Helmet

Photo

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.

Are you Race Ready? We are!

Outer Shell And EPS

Our outer shell in composite material is a unique blend of glass fibre (80%) and natural linen fibre (20%), mixed with a thermosetting resin.

This material is meticulously laid out in order to obtain a multi-axial fibre with outstanding benefits that guarantees a better spread and diffusion of the shock waves more on the helmet than on the skull.

Our performances during the crash tests highly exceeded the legal requirements for the different norms (CE 1078 - CPSC 1205 - AS) and outperform ABS, traditional and carbon fiber shells.

The focus was put on the chin guard in particular to obtain the best ratio between rigidity and necessary distortion to absorb impacts. The essential wide opening of the chin guard for optimal ventilation benefits from a high density polyurethane upper part. The obtaining of the ASTM F1952 norm, the only one that tests the chin guard, validates without a doubt the safety features highly sought-after.

The structure of the EPS has been designed to complete the unique features of the outer shell. Thanks to this exclusive combo, our helmet is lighter than the existing carbon top-of-the-range models. We have created one of the safest helmets in this category with a weight under 1kg making it among the lightest.

Visor

Made of polyethylene, it is able to deform in case of an impact and exceeds the requirements of the EN 1078 and ASTM F 1146-06 norms.

It is adjustable and fixed using aluminum screws.

Straps

The micro-metric buckle is our choice for ergonomics, durability and quick use.

Ventilation

10 vents allow good ventilation in any circumstances, even at low speed. Ventilation on the front of the helmet is particularly unique, thanks to the specific design of the chin guard. The wide frontal vents and the cheek pads were specifically redesigned to allow a real air flow around the ears.

Rear Ergonomics

A short cut of the neck aims at making more room at the rear to offer a perfect compatibility when using a backpack.

Fitting And Inner Padding

The inner padding is entirely detachable and washable.

It was designed for optimal comfort and retention. The dual-density cheek pads were particularly elaborated to obtain a perfect fit. The one-piece pad brings excellent fit and comfort.

The “bamboo treated” material used targets a triple efficiency: antibacterial, moisture wicking and hypoallergenic.

Goggle / Glasses Compatibility

The wide opening aims at guarantee an optimal field of view, compatible with all goggles on the market, even the wider ones. Lateral “gripping” pads and the ergonomics of the helmet allows for a perfect position of the goggle strap.

Finish

This helmet is a top-of-the-range model that benefited of the highest attention to details in its design, to the smallest of details, and in particular in the choice of the high quality and durable materials.
