You can never be too safe.

Sweet Protection upgraded the Igniter MIPS Helmet with a revolutionary Multidirectional Impact Protection System for enhanced ski safety. MIPS reduces brain injuries by rotating the helmet upon impact in order to absorb more force. This tested technology is proven to set a new standard in helmet safety. The helmet's thermoplastic shell is surprisingly superlight despite its ruggedly reliable impact-resistance.

The Igniter MIPS Helmet also features Sweet Protection's Impact Shields liner for shock-absorption. There's also a removable, moisture-wicking Coolmax liner embedded with Polygiene's permanent odor control for more comfort. The OcciGrip adjustment system ensures a secure fit, and there are removable FitPads for a more personalized fit.

Saved My Life.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My name is Cruz and I have a team of Siberian Huskies. As a musher, wearing a helmet is vitally important, and I found out just how much so a few weeks ago. We traveled to Ontario to do "dryland" training with my racing rig, a very light weight three wheeled cart that we typically only use for races. I had a new leader with an experienced one up front, and as we came to turn out of the trailhead there was a mound where a street sign was standing, I called them to the left, and only the experienced leader did so. They hit their neckline right down eh middle, and being on a mound sideways send me flying off to the right. The ground came faster than I was expecting, and WHACK - the sound alone was unnerving. I know that I'd still be in the hospital if not dead right now were it not for that little voice that told me just a week prior to get this particular helmet. I'd waffled a bit about the money, but got it despite my reservations. LISTEN TO YOUR GUT. Get the nice helmet - get a Sweet Protection brand.
The fit is snug, so do the measurements so you are sure to have the perfect fit. We get one head, and that's it - so protect it. I know my dogs would be lost without me, and I know you've got families that would be if something happened to you.
Get the good helmet.
Thank you Sweet Protection.

Too small!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Seems like a really nice helmet, but I should have paid more attention to some of the other reviews. The sizing is way off! I would add 1/2 inch to your hat size and then use the size chart.

Nice product!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I ordered a M/L and was a little nervous reading other reviews regarding size. It was a little snug, but after a few days on the slopes fits great, was easy to adjust, and is very comfortable. Solid product and would buy again.

Wish it fit!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I really wanted to like this helmet--great construction and size, MIPS, and cool design. But European sizing must be different! Even with a L/XL (which is usually fine for my gourd), it was too small. Forget wearing even a light balaclava under it. So, my search continues...

protect your egg

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Got it as a gift so i can continue to have a climbing partner next season. This was replacing an older model which got split by a tree so we know it works!

Great helmet....small fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The helmet sizing listed by the manufacturer is way off...too small. I wear a 7 1/4 hat and couldn't get a M/L size over my ears.

I replaced with a L/XL. It fits....but it's not loose by any means. So beware if you have a bigger niggin.

The helmet itself is low profile and has some good adjustment features and is solid throughout.

Although, the chin strap isn't very friendly if you need to get it on the tighter side of its travel. earbud pockets in the ear flaps. But they are easily removable.

Best Ski Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the coolest ski helmet on the hill. I like the design, fit and warmth. I normally don't ski with a helmet. Hearing is my biggest concern with ski helmets, but when you need a helmet this is a great option.

'Sweet' Helmet! (Get it?)

    I am officially a Sweet Protection fan for life! This helmet is amazing. Lightweight, warm, and made with quality materials. I got the Igniter with the MIPS for added protection. I recommend anyone looking to buy a helmet, to get a Sweet helmet that has MIPS (multi-directional impact protection). Your brain isn't something to mess around with!

    lightweight and killer protection

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    wow - the combo of lightweight and tech in this thing makes me wonder why I haven't seen a lot more on the hill. it's light (as i mentioned), stylie and i don't know a lot about all the ingredients, but i read some reviews from europe and this thing won some safety award (blew everything else out of the water including helmets from Smith and POC )so i thought that i'd give it a try. I haven't been anything but impressed. I ride mostly on the lift but push out beyond the rope line and into easy access backcountry. I've taken a few hits, nothing crazy, but the reputation of this helmet (that swedish award - i think it's called) and the company (check out some of their racers) is confidence inspiring. I'm stoked to know that there's some scientific proof that this thing will protect my most important asset ... and the black is stealth and stylie. I'm a medium in most helmets and this Medium fits well.

    Unanswered Question

    Hi can you tell me if the white helmet has the yellow MIPS detailing? i think the one in the photo is the non MIPS version but i want to be sure!


    Do these fit the same as their whitewater helmets, i.e. the Strutter and Rocker?


    The snow helmets fits the same way as the whitewater helmets. Most of the snow helmets has a similar fit, with the exception of the Rooster (which fits a little tighter).
