    Will see when it arrives if the black is indeed black enough.

    3M has some pretty interesting black reflective tape as well. There's actually strips on the peak of the helmet in my avatar. I've got a good flash/no flash picture of it, but not here at work, so you'll have to wait if you want a side-by-side ;)

    Might be good stuff for your board edges on a carbon, or the sides of the battery case, though, that's pretty hidden underneath where no one would see it. . .

    Got the helmet and the black is indeed not black at all. As of the special coating it is more a grey color but I really like it. For night it does not matter and the reflective layer should provide enough visibility next to my lights on the board. Helmet has a good fit and as far as I know Triple Eight has a good reputation.

    What model of RUROC are you guys using?
    There's a few on their site but it's not clear which are for motorbiking (heavy?), biking or snowboarding.

    Not sure which ones anyone is using, but I do know Atlas is the line they've intended for Motorcycle/Snow Machine usage

    I've been a big fan of snowboard helmets for cold weather bike riding, but, not sure about the skateboard. . . it tends to tap out from cold before I do. That Bern does look comfy though.

    The Ruroc model that is mostly worn by many of the Evolve community is the RG1-DX, intended for snow sports but works really well for electric skateboards! I can vouch for the RG1-DX as an extremely comfortable, lightweight & very well ventilated helmet if you want full face protection. I have just recently fitted Ruroc's Bluetooth Shockwave speaker system to mine, which makes skating even more enjoyable listening to tunes on my phone while I ride! The Atlas range, only just recently announced for Motorcycle/Snowmobile use & shipping later this year, will be a great addition to Ruroc's lineup if you need the extra level of protection.

    Very comfortable and it is certified for all gravity sports and can convert to a winter sports helmet for colder days
