Sweet Protection is further increasing the footprint in the road bike world with a wide array of new products. Releasing all-new aerodynamic helmets – Tucker MIPS and the road bike racing helmet Falconer II Aero in the US market. In addition, the Crossfire apparel series is completely revamped.

Sweet Protection launches their fastest bike helmet yet.

Meet the all-new aerodynamic road biking helmet from Sweet Protection - Tucker MIPS. Designed to break the mold of traditional time-trial helmets, the Tucker MIPS exceeds both as a fast road bike helmet and a dedicated time-trial helmet.

Sweet Protection - Tucker MIPS

Our fastest bike helmet. Yet.

Sweet Protection’s unwavering focus on innovation and desire to blend industry-leading safety features with lightweight construction has resulted in some of the most coveted helmets among hardcore skiers and riders. For the road biker, Sweet Protection has yet again pushed the limits of what is possible.

"We started this with the ambition of creating the fastest time-trial helmet in the world, but at the same time develop a helmet with a broader area of use without compromising on the aero. For this we found technology and solutions from both Formula1 and NASA to create a low-volume helmet with superior ventilation and minimum drag." says the director of design and development Staale Moeller.

This is achieved by the carbon fiber NACA duct which allows air to flow into an internal duct, often for cooling purposes, with a minimal disturbance to the airflow. This in combination with a "shrink-wrapped bodywork" that creates as little frontal area as possible and reduces the volume in critical areas to make sure the helmet geometry performs in several different angles

The Tucker MIPS is tested in wind-tunnel at several parts in the development process making sure the results are optimal and minimum as good as the best in the industry.

The visor can easily be removed and attached with hidden magnets, and the helmet

also works well with regular eyewear. This is our fastest helmet yet, all made possible through Sweet Protections ground-breaking, carbon fiber reinforced ventilation system.

With a price point at only $299 USD, this helmet offers a grand slam in value.

Available in stores from March 2019.

Falconer II / Falconer II MIPS and Falconer II Aero

The Falconer is a top-of-the-line helmet for road biking. With an aerodynamic geometry also developed to provide great ventilation, the result is a quicker and more comfortable ride – all wrapped in our four-piece variable elasticity shell technology for excellent protection. The Falconer Aero comes with additional Aerocovers™ minimize the aerodynamic drag even further. The Aerocovers™ is attached by snap on and off with magnets for extremely simple, on the go adjustments.

"We wanted to create a top-of-the-line helmet that needs to meet three main criteria for us to be happy with it. The Falconer is Fast (defined as aerodynamic and lightweight), Cool (has great ventilation) and Safe (construction). We achieved this by constructing a four-piece shell with variable elasticity, utilizing our STACC ventilation and with a focus on the aerodynamic geometry" says the director of design and development Staale Moeller.

The Falconer products have been available in Europe for two seasons but will for 2019 also be available for US consumers with its own CPSC certified version.
