“Verde brings a deep understanding of the North American action sports market and sees the performance and uniqueness our brand offers, making them a natural choice for Sweet,” said Christian Erga, head of marketing for Sweet Protection. “With Verde’s knowledge and passion for the activities we represent, I’m certain that this is the beginning of a successful partnership.”

Launched in 2000 with a desire to make world-class protective equipment that is both lightweight and low-volume, Sweet Protection’s award-winning products have seen years of success at home in Norway and throughout Europe. By
 fusing high tech materials, innovative manufacturing methods and cutting-edge design with a distinctive attitude and style, the Sweet crew has continually developed class-leading equipment, including the state-of-the-art, award-winning, FIS-approved Rooster Discesa RS ski helmet that was designed in conjunction with World Cup champion ski racer Aksel Lund Svindal.
