We are big fans of Sweet Protection at Unsponsored and have been since the early days and first iteration of the Sweet Strutter helmet. The year is 1988. Skateboarding is still prohibited in Norway, and the Sweet mantra was just manifested in a school paper. The Sweet Protection story started in Trysil, a mountain village […]
Yesterday we published a post detailing Sweet Protection’s move away from dry gear for 2020. As of today Sweet have launched their Paddlesport gear sale. This includes both softwear and hardwear. I’ve put my order in!
Sweet Protection have announced that they will be discontinuing the software range of products for 2020 and will be focussing solely on hardware and protection. Paddlesports is refocused, but still central in brand DNA. Back from the mid 80’s, when the founders of Sweet Protection fell in love with the local rivers and play spots, […]
From our friends at North East Kayaks and Paddles. What do you think?
The Sweet Protection Rocker Dagger Kayaks Edition is now available – Yeah!!! But is only to paddlers in the USA – Boooo!
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 have a pair of the new Sweet Protection Shazam Shorts in for review at Unsponsored. The Shazam Shorts are Sweet’s take on the classic board short but tailored specifically for the paddlesport market.
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 […]
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.
