Nestled in deepest Norway lies the municipality of Trysil. The location of one of the first known organised ski races was held here over 150 years ago, and today the settlement is home to the largest winter sports centre in Norway with 65 prepared slopes. It is in this winter wonderland that Sweet Protection began crafting the finest protective wear in 2000. Their award-winning team of designers, skilled technicians and star-studdied team of riders are pushing the envelope of functional equipment. Sweet are always on the relentless pursuit of perfection in every detail.
Sweet was founded in 2000 by a group of action sport enthusiasts, collaborating with Terje Håkonsen to develop protective winter wear. In 2003 they made their first ISPO appearance and won the Brand New Award for best newcomer.
Unique construction methods integrating carbon fibre shells are a unique feature of Sweet helmets. These construction methods allow for masses of technology and additional protective features to be integrated into the lids, at no expense to weight.
Sweet draw inspiration from skating style with all their helmets featuring a subtle brim. The Sweet shape is one of the most recognisable on the mountain, worn by pros and enthusiasts alike. Colourways are made to suit all tastes.
Sweet are always on the relentless pursuit of perfection in every detail. Read on to learn some of the key themes for Sweet in the coming season.
Based out of the small village of Trysil, in the midst of the Norwegian mountain and forest wilderness, Sweet have developed helmets since 2000. Their award-winning team of designers, skilled technicians and amazing team of riders are pushing the envelope of functional equipment. They are always on a relentless pursuit of perfection in every detail.
The company was founded by a group of friends with passion for all outdoor sports. Their focus has always been to have fun and progress with good friends, but when it comes to their products, they are serious.
Cutting edge technology is part of the Sweet DNA, with carbon fibre shells and MIPS technology commonplace. If you need a helmet that does everything then you’ll feel right at home with this range.
Leading the way in this range is the Grimnir, the most advanced freeriding helmet on the market. A carbon fibre-reinforced polymer shell gives an incredibly light construction, meaning Sweet were able to cram as much technology as possible into the lid including the MIPS system for added protection from rotational impact.
The Igniter is a versatile, extremely lightweight and well ventilated helmet with 26 inlet and exhaust vents. The injection molded ABS Superlight shell is rubber toughened giving it a great strength to weight ratio.
The Trooper is one of the most reliable helmets on the market and sets the standard for the next-generation of helmets. Like the Grimnir, it uses a carbon fibre shell to withstand severe stress, yet flexible enough for energy to be absorbed efficiently.
