When you're charging Mach 10 down icy slopes, trying to keep your turns on time while also finding that extra boost of speed to move you ahead in the standings, you don't have time to worry about what would happen if you took a spill. You need a helmet that'll help keep your mind at ease and focused on the task at hand, which is why the innovative and high-quality Sweet Protection Trooper II SL MIPS TE Helmet emerges as a racer's best friend. With MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) technology keeping your head safer during angled collisions and lots of other features helping you stay prepared for the race-specific obstacles you'll face, this helmet lets you tune out all the noise and charge ahead with confidence. In addition to a special 3-layer MIPS system, which reduces rotational forces on the brain during angled impacts, Sweet Protection outfitted this helmet with added Gate Shields in the front and back of the helmet. With Gate Shields you'll have added protection in those vulnerable areas where a gate might swing around and clock you after a particularly tight turn, letting you keep your line aggressive and helping propel you towards the top spots. This helmet is also compatible with Sweet Protection's quick-fit Chin Guard system, which easily attaches to protect your face during tighter slalom events. You'll have two-piece ear ports on either side of the helmet to keep your hearing steady and accurate at high speeds, and thanks to the 3D shaped vented lining and adjustable fit, you won't have to sacrifice comfort for performance during a long day of racing.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
