I bought this helmet to replace my Giro Synthe that I had for about 3-4 years. I was nervous because sweet protection does not have a lot written about them and their investment in cycling seems to be limited, but they are heavily involved in other sports requiring serious head protection. Regardless, I am pleased with this helmet. The temple cooling system really works and the chin strap feels much better than the Giro. I love the unique style and the matte white. The build quality is overall very impressive and I can tell they took the time to design something very safe yet good-looking. I love how far down the rear rightening mechanism goes. It hugs the rear the skull quite nice by dropping far enough down. Shape of the helmet is more oval than round which required a couple of rides to get the correct tightening and left me with some forehead marks after my first ride due to tightening, but I think that I have it figured now. Would definitely suggest giving it a shot!

Airy, great fitting helmet
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
I've struggled with helmet fit in the past with brands such as POC and Giro as I have an oval head. Specialized fits my head perfectly, but I've soured on it after I was concussed while wearing a Prevail. Sweet fits in a very similar manner and does not have any movement even while riding CX. I also own the Bushwacker for mtb - very happy with this too. Hopefully Sweet continues to invest in cycling as their helmets are the best I've owned.
