The ultimate freeride helmet.
The Trooper is the perfect companion for the backcountry skier or snowboarder who is eager to push their boundaries in challenging terrain. This helmet is specifically designed for providing unsurpassed and durable protection across the whole mountain in all weather conditions.
Our iconic Trooper helmet sets the bar in high-end freeride helmets, being high both on versatility and performance, and it can be named as one of the most advanced helmets on the market. This is a true game-changer in freeride helmet development, and it’s the best to represent Sweet Protections personality, values and brand identity.
The Trooper II is built on multiple layers of protection. The outer shell of the two-piece hard shell, consists of lightweight and rigid laminated carbon fiber. This layer combines the elasticity of injection molded thermoplastic with the rigidity and strength of carbon fiber. It enables us to very effectively tune the shell for different properties in different areas for optimized performance.
The MIPS technology is scientifically proven to reduce rotational motion by absorbing and redirecting rotational energies and forces transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head
In a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System (BPS) the shell and the liner are separated by a Low Friction Layer. When a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System is subjected to an angled impact, the low friction layer allows the helmet to slide relative to the head. The MIPS BPS is designed to add protection in helmets against the rotational motion.
The rotational motion is a combination of rotational energy (angular velocity) and rotational forces (from angular acceleration) that both affects the brain and increases the risk for minor and severe brain injuries. MIPS BPS has been scientifically proven to reduce rotational motion when implemented in a helmet by absorbing and redirecting rotational energies and forces transferred to the brain.
MIPS is designed to address what happens when you fall. Under real-world conditions, when you fall, your head usually hits the ground at an angle, putting your head into a spinning motion that could lead to strain in the brain. Accident statistics bear this out. However, in standard helmet tests, the helmet is dropped vertically onto a flat impact surface. This test is helpful for measuring precise vertical impacts, but far inferior for measuring the more realistic scenario of an angled impact.
Beneath the outer layer is the main shock absorbing structure. This is made out of low density EPS foam in a solid combination with the impact shields. Together the combination is extremely shock absorbent and tuned to match the properties of the shell. The EPS foam has ideal crush characteristics to reduce the forces of an impact in an effectively way.
The Impact Shields distributes impact forces from the inside of the helmet over larger areas in the most crucial zones as in the forehead and the back of the skull. Harmonizing and working in the combination with the EPS foam liner, they are designed to provide unsurpassed performance for shock absorbance. This is our premium impact protection technology.
New performance interior makes it easier to fasten and adjust. The helmet is also Audio Ready, which means you can listen to your favourite music while riding hard with the Outdoor Tech Chips.
