Sweet Protection Trooper Helmet

Seriously sweet head protection.

Slashing turns through the trees at 30 miles an hour and hucking yourself off big jumps in the terrain park without a helmet on really is risky business—give your brain some protection with the Sweet Protection Trooper Helmet. Made with a thermoplastic laminated carbon fiber shell, the Trooper is unique in its ability to withstand severe stress while maintaining enough flexibility to absorb energy efficiently. Behind the lightweight shell is EPS foam for increased safety and improved impact absorption.

One of the more critical components to any helmet is the way that helmet fits, so Sweet Protection hooked the Trooper up with everything it needs to fit comfortably on a wide variety of head sizes. The Occigrip fit system is a low-profile mechanism that enables the fit of the helmet to be adjusted in order to prevent the helmet from sliding around as you ski. The two front vents can adjusted to accommodate the conditions, while the moisture-wicking polyester liner is treated with a Polygiene odor control finish to prevent the helmet from picking up any unwanted odors over the course of a season.

How is the fit? I have a big melon and have trouble finding a decent helmet that doesn't squeeze my head. Wear a size 7.5 hat for reference

Hi Randal,



You'd want to go with the L/XL on this helmet. That will fit a hat size from 7 3/8 - 7 5/8.



If you need anything else, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

    I just opened and used my Trooper from Sweet Protection this weekend. What I thought I knew about helmets was just thrown out the window. Investing in my head protection is as important to me as a seatbelt in a car or having the right climbing gear. I have had Giro's, Smith's, etc. and they dont compare. Knowing that impacts do decrease the life of your helmet and if you are riding you are falling. They have gone above and beyond in safety. Price did not deter me but what sold me was the fit adjusters (NO HEADACHE OVER THE DAY), the ventilation, the comfort and quite honestly the ear flap openings. Most helmets covered my ears so you could not hear what is going on around you. These guys thought of it all. The safety that this helmet offers is unforeseen in the helmet industry. These guys really spent the time doing the R & D on this product. If you are looking for a helmet that has great goggle fit, air flow, fit and the best impact tolerances, Sweet has done it. Thank you for carrying this product Backcountry. You guys really know the market and what people want. Just a note here, runs very true to size. JS

    Brilliant helmet

    I absolutely love this helmet. It's amazingly comfortable and doesn't squeeze my head in weird places so I can keep it on all day without pressure points. It's nice and low profile so I don't ever feel like it's getting in the way of my skiing or hiking. I do wish that there was better venting overall but the front vents certainly let in air to cool you off if you're getting after it. I've worn a few helmets over the years and this is by far the best and most comfortable I've ever worn. I will continue to order this helmet now!
