5 ways to stay safe in the dark while skating
There is no reason to stay inside just because it's dark. Get out, have fun and be safe with these products.
There's no denying it, it's winter and in many places, this also means that the days get shorter.
But that doesn't mean that you can't skate or ride scooters and BMX outside, it's only a matter of being visible in order to stay safe.
Studies show that wearing a reflector when it's dark reduces the risk of getting into an accident in traffic by 85%.
Stay visible and stay safe
Get seen in the dark with The Gotham Helmet from Triple Eight. This helmet becomes reflective in the dark and turns into the black during the day.
This model is approved for both bike and skate use. Thanks to the Fit Dial system and the Sweatsave pads, you are always sure to get the perfect and the best comfort.
