OSLO, Norway (BRAIN) — Sweet Protection has announced the arrival of its spring mountain bike line for men and women. The Norwegian brand said highlights of the spring line include the updated Sweet Protection Bushwhacker II MTB helmet and Dissenter helmet.

The Bushwacker II is an enduro/trail bike helmet that now includes STACC ventilation, which the company said ensures uninterrupted airflow over the temporal artery to enhance cooling. This helmet has a 5-piece shell construction with variable polycarbonate thicknesses and geometric shapes to create an outer shell that is either stiffer or more flexible in key locations to better protect the head during impact. This helmet is available in three versions: the Bushwhacker II ($199), Bushwhacker II MIPS ($239) and Bushwhacker II Carbon MIPS ($299).

The Dissenter offers in-mold technology and a single-piece polycarbonate shell. It is equipped with Sweet's turn dial retention system for a secure fit and STACC ventilation for maximum cooling. The visor is removable for around town or commuter use. Available with or without MIPS protection. MSRP: $129.95 for standard and $169.95 for MIPS.

Also new for spring are the Sweet Protection Hunter Mid Gloves. They have a pre-curved fit, Clarino synthetic leather palm, silicone grip zones, and touchscreen-compatible index finger and thumb. Perforated fingers combine a blend of polyamide and spandex on the back of the hand to enhance ventilation and comfort. These gloves weigh 100 grams per pair and retail for $29.95.

Sweet Protection sells dealer direct in the U.S. More information at sweetprotection.com/sp_us.
