Sweet Protection introduces two new mountain bike helmet models for spring

Published March 24, 2017

TRYSIL, Norway (BRAIN) — Sweet Protection, a Norwegian developer of helmets, protective gear and technical clothing for the ski, whitewater and mountain bike markets, has released an updated version of its top-of-the-line Bushwhacker II helmet as well as the more affordable Dissenter helmet model. 

"At Sweet Protection, we have a passion for perfection that drives our desire to outfit our core markets with the safest, highest performance products available," said Christian Erga, head of marketing for the brand. "We are always looking for ways to improve across our helmet, padding and apparel categories to better protect you while on the trail, the mountain or the water. The Bushwhacker and Dissenter accomplish this goal while spanning a range of price points, making Sweet performance available to the broadest range of users possible."

The Bushwhacker II is an enduro/trail specific helmet with extended coverage and protection. It now includes STACC ventilation, which the company said provides uninterrupted airflow over the temporal artery to enhance cooling in the hottest weather. The Bushwhacker II also has a new occigrip retention system, an adjustable visor and softer, lighter webbing for increased comfort. The model is available in standard, MIPS and Carbon MIPS versions. MSRP: $219.95 for standard, $259.95 for MIPS and $319.95 for Carbon MIPS.

The new Dissenter model uses in-mold technology, similar to the Bushwhacker II, but to deliver a lower price it has a single-piece polycarbonate shell. The Dissenter is equipped with the occigrip turn dial and STACC ventilation, as well. Available with or without MIPS protection. MSRP: $149.95 for standard and $189.95 for MIPS.
