URGE - Gringo de la Sierra - Brown/Black
We’re a French brand and we are really proud of our roots.The first MTB championship in history took place in France (Villard de Lans 1987). And the famous Roc D’Azur was born in 1984 not far away from our headquarters in Cogolin. France is genuinely a reference place for Mountain Biking. Really various terrains allow talented riders to express themselves in various practices from XC to DH without forgetting Enduro.Some French champions have been crowned all over the world for 30 years now and 2 of them, Sabrina Jonnier and Fabien Barel, are parts of the Urge adventure from the beginning. That’s also one of the reasons why our products are always well thought and relevant. Main example is no doubt the launch of our Archi Enduro helmet, the first helmet ever fully adapted to Enduro Racing thanks to our large expertise of this practice, especially through Fred Glo (often named Godfather of the Enduro) experience. We do not claim any particular scientific knowledge only legitimate experience and skills.Therefore from the beginning our brand slogan is : Driven by our Roots and we could add: in France. Urge bp team is made of talented and passionate athletes (nearly always riders) living and working in the South of France, between Pyrenean mountains and Mediterranean sea. Every member of the team actively works for the growth of the brand whose goal is to produce the best MTB helmets ever.
The new Gringo
is the most versatile helmet ever made by Urge bp. Between us, we almost called it the « Greengo » because it’s made from 80 % of recycled materials. Decreasing the impact on our planet while manufacturing our helmets is the main guideline for our brand.
Its main purpose is at the heart of mountain-bike, a true All Mountain.
The Gringo is split in 2 categories : De La Sierra and De La Pampa.
Both versions have a modular chinguard, but we thought that ‘Sir De la Pampa’ will ride more often without removing the chinguard. That’s why we maximized the airflow in its full face appearance.
‘Sir De La Sierra’ will rather climb ‘open-face’ and add the chin guard with the grid before engaging a technical downhill section for an additional security. In the end, it’s also an aesthetic choice, with or without the grid, it’s up to you to decide which one you like the most. You’re more into googles ? Or sunglasses ? Its design is compatible with both of them.
El Gringo is extremely well ventilated however you choose to wear it, with our without the chinguard. And, as usual with all Urge bp helmets, it features our legendary comfy pads for long riding days full of fun.
Enfolded and very protective, it will stand on your side to provide the highest security when it’s time to.
