20 Years Of Sweet Protection

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 in Østerdalen, Norway… Fast forward to May 24th, 2000, the company was founded by a group of keen kayakers, skiers/snowboarders and mountain bikers missing the proper protection to push even harder at their sport. Now, twenty years later, Sweet Protection celebrates 20 years. 20 years in love with the rivers, waterfalls, mountains and forests – the playgrounds for which the brand has made it their mission to make the best possible products.

Sweet Protection 2020

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, Paddlesports has been an important part of the brand DNA and history. After discontinuing the dry wear products going into 2020, the Paddlesports collection is now refocused on hardware and protection only.

We believe that discontinuing our dry wear products will allow us to focus even more on innovation and cutting-edge technology on helmets and protection for Paddlesports.
