The vast majority of the time I wear no helmet with my EUCs.

Then, an urban bicycle helmet.

Then, a full-faced motorcycle helmet.

Then, a skate helmet if I'm just practicing.

I believe the normal bicycle helmet is quite dangerous because it provides just awful coverage.

Just watch various EUC crash videos and the choice of which helmet to wear is a clear, obvious choice. I don't give a shit who is scared of, put off by, or laughing at the gear I'm wearing. I love my face intact and unharmed. The one big crash I've had only reassured myself of this.

At my 50 mile mark I did not see a bad sidewalk joint (new rider over confidence...) which grabbed my wheel and down I went, face first. It happened so fast it was over before I knew what happened. I had full gear on but I was wearing a bike helmet, so I got a bloody split lip and banged  up nose. I was very lucky on the teeth...

Now I always wear a full face helmet and I am so used to it I don't even notice it any more as it is light, comfortable and has good air flow. It is a Fox Proframe.

@John Hearsey I'm going to purchase a Fox Proframe once it warms back up for my warm weather helmet. Everyone gives them great reviews.

I do like that the chin guard is fixed and not removable as I would never take it off anyway. Also, I have a large head and with its different size inserts it is is easy to adjust the fit.

I think you will like it a lot!

After reading on the forum and r/electricskateboarding, I have encountered enough "don't be me, wear a full face helmet" posts that I decided on the matte black Bell Sanction. It should arrive tomorrow. I'll post an update on this thread about how it fits
