To commit yourself in one direction (for us it is to protect you in a more eco-friendly way) and to make it affordable to most is for us the most honest and useful way to go. That is our vision of eco-activism at Urge Bike Products and that’s why we’ve created the Activist…
This brand new model is our “entry level” helmet, but more importantly it is the model where we’ve gone further in terms of material choice and less polluting materials.
The inner shell is made of recycled EPS while the outer shell is finished by the process of ABS dyeing in order to avoid using paint. The logo is a relief in the shell, which is nicer looking and avoids the use of stickers.
Like the entire Urge helmets range, straps are made of recycled PET, our packaging has the legal minimum of plastic bags and other useless gadgets that end up in the bin, and the box is made of raw one-color carboard. Of course, along with all of the virtuous details, we haven’t forgotten about the comfort, the ventilation, the look and above all the safety. Even if you are now an activist who decided to protect the environment, the new Activist was mainly designed to protect you during your riding sessions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by petefeet great looking and comfy helmet
I bought the bright green and unlike the other reviewer I really like the way it looks, I can see why someone wouldn't like it, bit like citroen or renault cars, it's quite heavily styled and has a designer edge to it.
It's really comfortable (it comes with a bag of velco in padding of different thicknesses that you stick in til it's snug). Much lighter than I thought it might be too and I really like that it's made from recycled plastic... great that someone gives a monkeys about the planet.
Only tiny thing I'd like to see is a bit of padding on the chinstrap - most cycle helmets don't have this I know, but I wish they did...
