Chrome came on the scene around this time last year. We saw chrome in the hands of college players, then pro players and now it is available to everyone. We learned today that chrome will soon be available in a matte finish with tonal colors. Matte finish is also quite popular these days on collegiate helmets such as Duke. The head is coated with a dull, no-gloss finish. As you can see in the image the matte finish makes the glossy chrome shine even brighter. It is really apparent with the Black/Silver as well as the Blue/Silver colorways.
