The Sweet Protection Rooster Discesa RS 2018 helmet is a top-of-the-line and no-compromise alpine ski racing helmet seen on everyone from World Cup FIS and NorAm racers to elite level USSA athletes. The Rooster Discesa RS is designed to actually exceed the FIS RH 2013 standard and the demands of some of the world's best alpine racers. This is absolutely the most advanced race helmet on the market using only the best materials and production technologies available.
The Rooster Discesa RS model is equipped with MIPS, (Multi-Directional-Impact-System) a technology that reduces brain trauma associated with rotational forces and impacts. MIPS equipped helmets allow the shell to rotate slightly upon an oblique impact, so the helmet absorbs more of the twisting force which sets a higher level of protection than helmets not equipped with MIPS or similar technologies.
The Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer Shell provides an incredible strength to weight ratio, rigidity and impact performance. Sweet Protection's unique method of fiber lamination enables them to create a super light and aerodynamically optimized helmet shell with a fine-leather-Italian-driving-glove-like fit. Lined with a EPS premium foam liner that is molded to distribute shock from the inside of the helmet over a larger area in the crucial front and back impact zones - where your head needs it most.
Ear chamber pads are hollowed out for better hearing and comfort. The ear pads also have a built in safety feature - they are removable without having to take the helmet off. So if emergency personnel want to get the helmet off you without pulling your head or neck, they can easily slide the pads out then slip the helmet off without any further trauma.
A wicking Coolmax liner is easily removable for washing, and custom cut fit pads to ensure a snug fit are included.
This helmet is FIS RH 2013 Certified.
Please note that this helmet is NOT chin guard compatible for the 2017-18 year. For a slalom helmet by Sweet Protection, please see the Trooper SL helmets.
