TECHNOLOGY

01_ TECHNOLOGY:

06_ FITTING:

SWEET is utilizing a unique protection technology. We were among the very first to provide carbon fibre reinforced helmet shells. It protects the skull like nothing else. Nothing comes close to the fit and slimness of SWEET helmets, -half the volume and super light weight, yet offering equal or better protection.

Why is fit important? Well, a properly fitted helmet will be most comfortable, but more importantly, it will offer the maximum amount of protection and performance. Helmets offer optimal protection only when fitted and worn properly, thus, finding the right size and model is crucial. If the helmet does not have a correct fit, the head might accelerate inside the helmet during a severe blow, which will create too much energy that neither the padding or your brain can withstand. Note that there are circumstances where the helmet will not fit due to the shape of the helmet and the shape of your head. In cases like this, you may have to try on a few different models to find the right one.

02_ CARBON FIBRE COMPOSITE KEY FEATURES: - Light weight - Extreme strength to weight ratio - Extreme stiffness / rigidity - Corrosion resistant - Fatigue and crash resistant - Impact absorbent - Temperature resistant

Here’s a checklist:

03_ THE PRODUCTION PROCESS: Our shells are constructed from continues carbon fibre reinforced thermosetting resin composites. It’s manufactured by arranging the carefully selected fibre-resin mixture into the desired shape. The configuration and direction of the fibres are optimized to provide maximum performance before they are cured in an autoclave. The curing process in an autoclave is accomplished by exposing the material to elevated temperatures and pressures. The applied pressure provides the force needed to squeeze excess resin out of the material, to consolidate individual plies, and to compress voids. This technology is hard core, and often used in the aerospace- and racing car industry, where performance of the material is crucial.

(Fig.1)

(Fig.2)

04_ DESIGN APPROACH: When constructing helmets, the usual approach is: “put enough padding in it, and you’ll be safe”. We don’t like the idea of having a lot of volume on our heads while we’re playing (Fig.1), so we figured out another approach: When protection relies on padding alone, all the energy must be absorbed through a single point of impact, rather than distributed over a large surface area. Our helmets have less volume than other helmets, but offer equal or better protection because all impacts are distributed over a maximum surface area. (Fig.2)

Measuring tape -

This is a good tool to determine the correct circumference and get a rough idea of what helmet size will fit best. SWEET helmet sizes are determined in centimeters.

Putting on helmet -

Align the front rim of the helmet above your eyebrows. Hold the straps on both sides and roll the helmet over the back of your head. Make sure the front is low in the forehead, otherwise no size or model will fit or protect you correctly.

Check for gaps -

Once the helmet is on it’s time to check for comfort and gaps. The comfort padding should be flush with the forehead with no major gaps. The back of the helmet should not cover the nape of the neck. Make sure the helmet is seated all the way down on the head. Finally, adjust chinstrap to a snug and comfortable fit.

Roll test -

Slightly roll or lift your helmet off your head. If the skin on your forehead moves, you have a good fit.

Proper use -

Be sure the helmet is fitted just above your eyebrows and that your goggles fit your face while wearing the helmet. There should be minimal or no gaps between the top of the helmet and the goggles.

Satisfaction -

Make sure that you’re comfortable in your helmet. Go out and play!

07_ CERTIFICATION: All SWEET Protection Helmets meets and exceeds the CE standard for their specific area of sports. CE type examination by: SP Swedish National Testing and Research Institute Box 857 SE-501 15 Borås Sweden Notify Body No. 0402 08_ SIZE CONVERSION CHART:

(Fig.3) 05_ OCCIPITAL SHELL: We’re using a divided shell technology on all our helmets offering maximum fit and comfort and keeping the volume as low as possible. This is unique to all sweet helmets, and a crucial part of the superior fit and performance. Its task is to grip your scull from underneath, preventing the helmet to roll on your head. (Fig.3) However, the most important task is to protect your occipital lobe and surrounding hemisphere
