Urge Bike follows up their latest all-mountain AllTrail head protection, with a new Nimbus MTB helmet designed just for kids. In classic Urge fashion the new Nimbus is light, well-vented, affordable & eco-friendly, all while making mountain bike protection more accessible to riders of all ages…
Urge Nimbus kid’s affordable all-trail, all-mountain bike helmet
The new kid’s Nimbus MTB helmet is pretty much the direct analog of its recent big brother AllTrail, simply scaled down to fit smaller heads for riding from cross-country to enduro epics.
Urge took their trail family to La Montagne du Caroux for some scenic riding, testing out the new helmets for all ages.
Calling it an iconic French mountain biking locale, Urge recommends taking your own kids there too, where the Velo Caroux MTB school can lead your whole family through the beautiful heart of the Occitanie, not so far from Urge’s base on the Côte d’Azur.
With almost the exact same profile from the side, the Nimbus extends protection down over the temples and the back of the young rider’s head. It even gets the same number of vents, although they seem a bit smaller due to the smaller helmet size overall.
In-mold construction is generally the same, but using a one-piece recycled plastic shell over the EPS foam (instead of the AllTrail’s 2-piece that protects the foam from rough handling off the bike). Again showing their focus on environmental responsibility, the Nimbus is made from 80% recycled material, including its shell, visor & straps. It also gets the same dial retention, and big Urge graphics in four shiny colors… that could also be good real estate for your kid’s own sticker customization?

Urge announced the new Nimbus today to get us excited. But like the AllTrail, you’ll have to wait until December 2020 to buy the new Nimbus.
Urge does promise though that it will be available in select shops and online direct before Christmas. So think about how you will stuff one into your kid’s stocking…
