About Urge Helmets
Driven by our roots
Urge are proud to be born on some of the most beautiful trails. The trails of Colorado and Provence are so different, between the flow of some and the ancestral natural side of the other. However, from the Trans Verdon to the Colorado Trail to name but a few mythic trails, they all belong to the “must ride once in your life” for any true mountain biker. For us, and we’re happy and proud about it, these trails are literally in front of our north-American and European offices. Welcome to the urge bike products page Mountain-biking and riding is our culture, our passion. Manufacturing the best helmets is our sole purpose.Where are we ?One foot in Denver, Colorado (USA) and the other foot in Cogolin, Provence (France), we are clearly established and deep-rooted into these two historical and emblematic MTB spots.Colorado is undoubtedly the Mecca of singletracks, and the Provence, Cogolin in particular, is the birthplace of the Roc d’Azur, the older and most important European competition.It’s the mountain bike culture that has forever driven our lives and it’s this genuine passion that pushed us to create in 2008 URGE Bike Products. Urge Mountain Bike Helmets are sold in Australia by GravitySportHQ and distributed wholesale by Outdoors International Pty Ltd.
