Don't snuff it.
Lots of helmets can keep your skull in one piece and your brain whirring, but how many of them can say they're made of incredibly lightweight and strong carbon fiber? Not many, but Sweet Protection's Rooster Helmet is one of the exceptions. It's built with CRP (carbon-fiber-reinforced-polymer) shell technology, which is exceptionally rigid and light to keep your noggin safe, and padded with EPS impact foam and Sweet Protection's Impact Shield inserts, which help disperse forces across the whole helmet, not just where impact occurs. Even better, the Rooster is equipped with famous MIPS multidirectional impact protection system, which allows the inner and outer shell to rotate separately, which disperses the rotational impacts that are much more common in a crash. This means your brain won't have to take the blows, which is pretty obviously a good thing.
The Rooster's light and safe, but it's also seriously comfortably. Sweet Protection lined it with a Coolmax moisture-wicking liner to keep your head cool and sweat free, and included removable pads that help you customize the fit. There are also removable ear pads, which you can pop quickly on and off depending on activity, temperature, and preference.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have had my Rooster for more than 10 years. When I first started wearing a helmet, I thought I would hate it... but the Rooster is light and comfortable. When its really cold, I wear a thin beanie as well and it fits just fine. Having the advanced tech on my head makes me feel safe... not that I tend to bounce off trees very often... but hey, there's always 'the other guy'...
