I think the point is that the goggles are exactly the right shape and size to fit into the space formed by the helmet and mask, so you really don't end up with any exposed skin.

I wonder what the goggle lens quality is like. Is it closer to Oakley or Gordini?

Interesting strategy...but then more info about the goggle lenses would be useful. Did you try fit the helmet with major brand goggles? CAn you wear them at all?
Again., I'm interested in the helmet design, but not on cheap goggles....Been there, and lenses are crucial for a good ride. I have Oakley Crowbars

I think it could be a much more successfull idea if the helmet could adapt to most goggles....having a bit of skin exposed is not an issue..especially here in California where rarely is THAT cold that you even need a full face mask. Bur I love the protection the rigid one offers. And the look.

Ruroc helmets

The goggles are of high quality, they are actually the most expensive part of the helmet kit if you were to itemize each piece. I personally would put them right there at the top with the name brands goggle manufactures. They are 100% UV 400 protection, and have a special anti-fog coating. The goggles don't fog up at any point. The goggles even allow for glasses to be worn underneath them. They are one of the larger sizes on the market that make that possible.

I've sent off an email to the Canadian contact point. We'll see if anything comes back.

Quality of the goggles? Since you really have to use theirs.
Quality of the seal between the goggles and helmet parts? No gaps?
How's the air flow when the facemask is on?
Any chance of fogging up the goggles if you're really breathing hard?
Does the mask part feel sturdy or cheap plastic?

Howzat for starters?

goggles seem good overall, massive if worn without helmet, bit of flex in the goggles themselves but lenses seem pretty sturdy and cant complain about clarity or anything, only worn it inside but wore it for 20 mins, tried heavy breathing etc not a bit of fogging. actually helmet combo so light started to forget i was wearing it, suppose cold air will be true test for fogging but i am impressed, i could fog up bedroom mirror through mask but not the goggles. mask is very strong on front, very sturdy in fact not cheap plastic, the bits that insert into helmet seem a bit more delicate but i put it on twenty odd times (takes a bit of practice before it becomes easy) and it seems fine. the "delicate bits" are designed to come apart if really stressed rather than break so you can clip them back in if that happened. although this did not happen once but one of the bits needed building out of the box, only gaps are designed gaps that keep the air flow system working.

that help?

SUre does...a test on snow would be better.
I like the system, but I don't believe those lenses are better than my Oakley's. A more general mask/helmet system for all other goggles? I don't care if there's a little gap..I don't ride in antarctica -30 snowstorms anyway...Tahoe is pretty mild. Make a model that fits other goggles and I'm interested...
can you try yours with other goggles and see if they fit? Maybe stop at a snowboard shop and try some major brand goggles on that system ?

I like the idea, can't see it working thou. It's designed to work as a unit. Next time im in a snowboard shop and happen to have my helmet on me I'll do a alternative goggle test for ya but I'm guessing that's going to be next year tbh.

Any other questions b4 thread/
