Here is what Freeskier.com has to say:
The following text is copied from Freeskier.com
"Like an onion, the two-piece hard shell Trooper is built with multiple layers of protection. The outer shell utilizes a thermoplastic laminated carbon fiber which is lightweight, rigid and highly-skilled at dispersing impacts. Below that, you’ll find a combination of EPS foam and composite inserts that, together, are supremely shock absorbent and hold the title of Sweet’s premium impact protection technology. The Trooper also comes in at a manageable weight of 650 grams (m/l size)."
Quick tech info
Impact shields features a molded shock absorbing EPS liner with inserts that provide unsurpassed performance for shock absorbance. This is our premium impact protection technology. It distributes impacts from the inside of the helmet over large areas in the crucial front and back zones where your head needs it.
TLC SHELL TECHNOLOGY
Thermoplastic Laminated Carbonfiber (TLC) combines the elasticity of injection-molded thermoplastic with the rigidity and strength of carbon fiber. It enables us to very effectively tune the shell for different properties in different areas for optimized performance.
