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.
