Here it is a Sweet Protection Strutter 2019. These things won’t be out until well into 2019 but we have one right here at Unsponsored to check out, wear, use and review with the help of North East Kayaks and Paddles.
We reported a few months ago that Sweet Protection had developed a new logo for 2019. As we are in next seasons launch time frame we are seeing a few more images from Sweet themselves.
What do you think?
A number of trade shows are taking place ready for the outdoor season later in the year.
An eagle eyed contributor to Unsponsored has spotted that Sweet Protection are using a different “S” for their logo.
If the Rocker isn’t giving you the protection you need may be the full face version is the one for you. This limited edition version is available in a metallic white and metallic red combination.
The only true difference is the addition of the jaw guard. Materials and construction of the helmet is the same as the Rocker.
A Sweet Protection Rocker has been in the Unsponsored gear bag for a number of years. Mine is nice and simple gloss white number which I really get on well with. This Sweet Protection Rocker however is a two tone metallic affair. Metallic white top and metallic red lower. Even the visor matches.
Brand new from Sweet Protection for 2018 are the Shazam Shorts. The neoprene lined Shambala shorts are still in the range for 2018.
Sweet Protection have just shared some of their new line up with Unsponsored. This includes some new gear, design changes and some colour updates.
First up is the 2018 Sweet Strutter.
Believe it or not the Sweet Protection Strutter helmet has been around for 20 years, and 2017 marks the 20th anniversary. The Strutter was first made in 1997, that is even before Sweet protection actually existed. We’ve had at least one of the Strutter models at Unsponsored HQ from the very start.
To celebrate 20 years Sweet have released a couple of limited edition models of the Strutter. Both helmets are based around the latest iteration of the Strutter which was released in 2012. Since its first release the Strutter has significantly evolved.
This thing just looks great, the limited edition Sweet Stutter. Celebrating 20 years!
The Sweet Protection Sabrosa Dry Top has landed here at Unsponsored HQ. This may well be an exclusive, it’s not even on the Sweet Protection website yet. It would be fair to say that I have been waiting sometime for Sweet to put a short sleeved paddle top into production and it’s finally here.
I think that originally the Sabrosa was not designed to be a full on dry top and was billed as a spray top. However on arrival at Unsponsored HQ it is clear the the Sabrosa is a full on short sleeve dry top. It even states it on the swing tag.
The Sweet Protection Rocker is a superb helmet, we’ve been using one here at Unsponsored HQ for the last year or so, it has taken a few knocks and has performed well.
If it isn’t broke don’t fix it!
The Sweet Protection Rocker 2017 gets some minor cosmetic changes including some new colour schemes.
