The stats are that a white helmet offers better visibility over a black helmet.

it has been said that you can add some reflective stickers to a black helmet to offer more visibility.

black in the night time is pretty much as good as invisible and should be avoided.

I have to be honest, I wear a Black Full Face... But I also wear a Vest over my bike jacket when im on it.

the vest offers a lot of additional visibility. regardless of color choice of helmet.

it is highly visibile in the night time from up to 1000m or more away.

I have a matte black full face helmet, it does not like a shiny but it still smooth, it is very nice compare to shiny, I am happy with my full face helmet.
