Some Really Sweet Protection

Sweet Protection is a leader in helmet and protective equipment design. Their gear represents some of the highest-quality manufacturing out there for biking, paddling, and snowsports. Sweet made its debut into paddlesports in 1997 with a carbon fiber helmet design that was unlike anything else paddlers had ever seen. That helmet became the “Strutter” in 2001 and has solidified itself as a staple in the world of whitewater kayaking. Originally from Norway, this company prides itself on making gear that is… well… Sweet!

For people looking for a solid all-around playboating and river running helmet, the Sweet Wanderer helmet is ideal for you. This helmet features a sturdy construction, fairly low weight and low profile, and the adjustable Occigrip retention system.

The Sweet Protection Rocker Halfcut is a beefed-up helmet meant for river running and creeking. It features a removable visor, removable earpads, and more head coverage over the Wanderer. It’ll keep you protected in pretty much any situation up to where you would need to wear a fullface helmet. The Sweet Protection Rocker Fullface has you covered there!

The Sweet Protection Strutter Helmet is a stylish & lightweight helmet popular among rafters and playboaters, due to the long brim and baseball-cap-like feel. This helmet feels fairly minimal and form-fitting vs other helmets that use lots of padding to achieve a tight fit.

Need to armor up before heading out on a bony run? The Sweet Protection Elbow Guards provide a lower-coverage pad that promotes better movement or the Sweet Protection Elbow Pads feature a full-coverage and superior shock-absorbing pad. Stand-Up Paddleboarders will really enjoy the Sweet Protection Knee Shin Pads because they stay in place effectively if you take a swim, especially times when you most need them, like surfing, where you fall off the board and swim aggressively for eddies frequently.

If you answered yes to either of these things, hopefully this blog can help avoid some of those awkward conversations!
