Urge All M helmet review£99.99

Striking lid choice – if it fits your head

BikeRadar score3/5

Urge’s take on helmet design is a little different from much of the competition, and their All M lid is no different.

The in-mould construction is only available in two sizes and because there’s no adjustable cradle, the All M won’t suit everybody’s head shape. 

Saying that though, the generous padding in our small/medium sample provided a snug enough fit to keep the helmet in place on rough, rocky trails. The fit is helped by the ‘X Straps’ that cross over the back of your head and cradle your cranium, but still not as tightly as an adjustable cradle.

The generous padding can get a little warm but it does wick well, and the massive vents and internal channelling keep you cool enough. The overall coverage is good and we like the unusual styling.
