Try as you might, you can't transplant the brain from your old gerbil into your own head, so you might as well slap the Sweet Protection Trooper MIPS Helmet on and protect the gray matter you've got. You won't find a safer dome piece than the Trooper MIPS, which utilizes an elastic yet rigid TLC shell engineered using a blend of thermoplastic and carbon fiber to disperse impact, EPS foam to absorb shock, and Impact Shield inserts to spread forces over the whole helmet, not just where the impact took place. Even better, Sweet Protection designed it with MIPS (multidirectional impact protection system), which actually lets the outer and inner shells rotate over each other to better observe rotational forces and oblique impacts, which are far more common than straight-on crashes. The Trooper will keep your skull in one piece when you ragdoll down that line or take that cliff hit straight to your dome, and it'll feel awesome while it does it, too. Sweet Protection hooked it up with a OcciGrip adjustment system that allows you to dial in a snug, wobble-free fit, and also inlcuded removable fit pads to account for the funny bumps on your noggin. Adjustable vents pull air through the top of the lid while indirect ventilation keeps air circulating even when the vents are cold, and the removable microfur-lined earpads will make you feel like you're rubbing your ears against a cat. Sweet Protection even treated the moisture-wicking Coolmax liner with Polygiene, which fights off bacteria so your lid doesn't smell like you've been storing fish in it.
