Let us know how that ventilation system goes.
Its heavier then my Bern Carbon which I think is 400g, but you can tell the Sweet is a different league of build quality, plus the Bern is essentially just a sheet of pure carbon fiber over the foam protection. The sweet has more quality padding, and is just a better build all around. The said the Sweet is smaller then the Bern... Not head size, but just overall profile.

Unfortunately with the shit weather in the forecast it wont look like ill have a chance to try it until the end of the week.
