General Fitting Information - Introduction

Sweet Protection helmets are built to keep you safe and comfortable whether you're riding your bike, paddling the river, or snowboarding in the backcountry.

Sweet Protection's helmets are broadly categorized into three categories: ski/snowboard, motorcycle (bicycle), and paddle sports. Each category has distinct usage and certification needs, which of course change depending on the season. Ski and snowboard helmets are designed, tested and certified with materials and construction to withstand cold weather. Helmets keep you warm and are compatible with goggles. Motorcycle and paddle helmets focus on providing ventilation while ensuring safety.

Measuring Your Head - How to measure head circumference

The circumference of the head is not a perfect circle, and the aspect ratio is not the same for each person. So it's difficult to see the size without doing anything. Please refer to the size chart below. To find the right size, measure your head circumference by wrapping a measuring tape around your head just above your ears and holding it horizontally from front to back. After taking your measurements, please refer to the table below to find your size. All Sweet Protection helmets have a size adjustment system and come with a fit pad for the perfect fit.

Perfect Fitting The Helmet - How to wear a helmet correctly

A properly fitted helmet should fit all the way around your head. There should be no movement and there should be no extra space between the helmet and the head. However, it should not be so tight that you feel pressure or pain. To check how your Sweet Protection helmet fits, you can easily perform a "shake test".

1. Wear the helmet: Align the front rim of the helmet over your eyebrows. Holding the straps on both sides, roll the helmet over the back of your head and behind your head. Make sure the front is low to your forehead. There should be a minimum gap between the helmet and your eyebrow. Once you have your helmet on, check comfort and clearance. Make sure the pad is level with your forehead and there are no large gaps. The back of the helmet must not cover the nape of the neck.

2. Fit Test: If the skin on your forehead moves slightly when you put the helmet on, it's a good fit.

3. Shake test: Wear the helmet and try shaking it gently or lifting it off your head. If the helmet moves on its own or swings away from your head, it's too big. Try using your hands to move the helmet from side to side and up and down. If the skin on your head moves slightly with the helmet, but the helmet doesn't move on its own, it's a good fit.

4. Buckle: Please be sure to adjust and secure the buckle of the chinstrap before use. Adjust the straps to hold your helmet in place. Straps must have the same tension.

5. Incorrect wearing method: Try to grab the helmet with both hands and push it back and forth to take it off. If you can push it forward enough to obscure your vision or push it back enough to expose your forehead, your helmet isn't fitted correctly. If so, please return to sections 1 and 2 and repeat the steps to adjust your helmet.

6. Individual differences in fitting: Depending on the wearer, the helmet may not fit properly due to differences in the shape of the helmet and your head. In that case, you may need to try different models to find the one that is right for you.

Care instructions

How to care for your Sweet Protection Helmet

【before use】
Before each use, check your helmet for damaged, worn, or missing items.

[About exchange]
Sweet Protection helmets are made to absorb some of the energy from the impact of a fall. Even if the damage is not obvious to the naked eye, it is very important to replace a helmet that has received a large impact or been hit hard in an accident as soon as possible. When you inspect your helmet, you may not find any obvious damage, but it may be hidden there. Sweet Protection advises you to replace your helmet after approximately 3 years under normal use, or sooner if it has been exposed to prolonged sun exposure, hard use or contact with chemicals. Also, if your helmet no longer fits, replace it.

【Care】
If your helmet becomes dirty, use only clean water (maximum temperature 30°C) and mild detergent. Allow to air dry and avoid contact with direct sunlight or hot surfaces. Avoid using paints, adhesive stickers, cleaning fluids, chemicals, and other solvents that can significantly reduce the helmet's protection.

【storage】
Exposure to temperatures above 62°C will damage the helmet. Please note that this temperature can easily be exceeded if you leave your helmet next to a car window on a warm, sunny day. If exposed to such temperatures, the helmet should be replaced immediately.

[Customize]
If any of the original elements of the helmet are modified or replaced, the helmet will not perform as intended. Please note that customization is not recommended and will void your warranty. Sweet Protection and Sputnik, the general distributor in Japan, cannot be held responsible for any damage or injury caused by incorrect use or modified helmets.

[Carry]
Please use the packaging provided by Sweet Protection to transport your helmet. After use, store your helmet unpacked in a cool, dry, and dark place away from heat, frost, high humidity, corrosive substances, and other sources of damage. During transportation, avoid sharp objects falling from above and damaging the helmet. After purchasing your helmet, please save the packaging. The packaging can be used for transportation and for warranty purposes at the store of purchase in case of any defects.

[Accessories and spare parts]
Accessories and spare parts are available from Sweet Protection and Sputnik, the exclusive distributor in Japan. In that case, proof of purchase from an authorized reseller will be required. Use only original accessories provided by Sweet Protection.

Cautionary Note

About Sweet Protection Helmet

This helmet is designed exclusively for action sports (skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, white water sports, mountain biking, etc.). Not suitable for motorcycling or other motorized activities.

Depending on the strength of the impact, even accidents at very low speeds can cause serious injury or death. Helmets are designed to protect the head, but not the parts of the body that are at risk in an accident, such as the neck or spine. For maximum protection, the helmet must be correctly fitted to the wearer's head in accordance with this instruction manual.

Helmets may be damaged after receiving an impact. It will no longer be sufficient to protect your head from further impacts. The damage may not be visible. If this helmet has been subjected to an impact, please return it to us for proper inspection or discard and replace.

Children should not wear helmets while climbing or doing other similar activities. There is a risk that your neck will be squeezed by the helmet strap.

Action sports (skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, white water sports, mountain biking, etc.) are inherently dangerous because they involve speed, height, natural and man-made obstacles, and physical limitations. This product has been scientifically designed to reduce the chance of injury when used properly. However, Sweet Protection does not guarantee that this helmet will eliminate all risk of injury, even when worn properly. For maximum protection, you must fit this helmet correctly and ensure all adjustments are made. All Sweet Protection helmets are thoroughly tested and certified for their respective sport discipline and intended use. Do not use the helmet for activities for which it is not intended.

When trying out a new helmet for the first time, allow yourself the necessary time to adjust. If the installation procedure seems complicated, ask your retailer for help. Test the fit of your helmet each time you wear it and adjust as necessary. If a child wears a helmet, an adult should put it on and adjust it.
