Falconer II Mips Helmet

Sweet Protection strives to create superior protection that inspires athletes to push their limits without worrying about their equipment. The Falconer II MIPS Helmet just so happens to be their flagship road cycling helmet, providing riders with an ideal combination of protective coverage, first-rate ventilation, and an aerodynamic shape in order to help them to ride at their best. Compared to the standard Falconer II helmet, this version sees the addition of a MIPS Brain Protection System, a low-friction layer that protects against harmful rotational forces experienced during certain types of crashes.

The Falconer II MIPS features extensive ventilation via large intake and exhaust ports, including a patent-pending Superficial Temporal Artery Cooling Channel that cools the temporal artery while still providing coverage or your temples. The 4-piece shell uses variable-thickness polycarbonate for lightweight toughness, molded to a shock-absorbing EPS foam liner to effectively cushion impacts.

The helmet is adjustable via an Occigrip Turn Dial that allows one-handed adjustment to both tension and height, and each helmet comes with two different thicknesses of moisture-wicking padding to ensure a comfortable fit for every rider.

  • 4-piece polycarbonate shell is lightweight and strong
  • EPS foam liner cushions the force of impacts

    Love this helmet

    I've used it several times

    This came recommended to me by a riding buddy who has a similarly-shaped head to mine: narrow, maybe a little pointy on top. Most helmets start to dig in on the top of my head or forehead, even wearing a cap underneath for a little extra padding. I've been riding a Kask Protone for the last several years and it's mostly been comfortable, but the retention system gets in the way of the arms of most of my sunglasses. So far I'm really happy with the Falconer. Fits comfortably, retention system is simple but very effective, vents pass tons of air through, no bumping my glasses askew. Out of the box the chin-strap sits farther forward than I'd like, but it's adjustable with some effort. The look is less polarizing than some of the stuff from POC, maybe a little less subtle than my Kask. I'm impressed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Falconer to anyone else.

    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

    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.
