Try them on. Knowing the cm of your head is a start, but helmet shapes and head shapes and depth of helmet are all variables to consider when sizing it. My head is 62cm and deep. Not all xl/xxl helmets fit me the same.

I can honestly say that Sweet Protection make some really good helmets, i am on my 2nd Sweet, and it will be replace the end of this season and will have done 3 seasons and taken a few hard knocks...!

I currently use the Sweet Grimnir, and it is fantastic, as well as being a strong Carbon Fibre, and very light, it also has MIPS which is well worth the money.

The down side, they are not cheap...!!!

Our whole family is using Sweet now, 5 of us in total...

This.

Absolutely try them on.
Different brands fit differently, and head shapes are different.

If it does fit, I recommend the POC Fornix Backcountry MIPS helmet. Very light, and the MIPS is good to have.

Edit: I was curious about the Sweet Protection helmets with MIPS and checked their website.
Solid looking helmets for sure. However, the POC Fornix is lighter than either the SW Igniter or Trooper with MIPS, FYI.

Absolutely agree with this, i struggled to find a comfortable helmet until i came across the Sweet.

They come with a pack of pads for more exact fitting, so it it can be adjusted for sure, but it still doesn't fit everyone...

I've bought a different kind each time. Just take your goggles and go to the store. I bought a Anon helmet, It's light and looks nice. Grey with a little green on it.

Glad I had it a couple days ago. I hit the down rail with my face. Rang my bell pretty good, just noticed I have a black eye today from it.. Now I remember why I avoid the park! I should bail instead of trying to adjust if I hit it funny.

Sweet gear is awesome. It is also nearly impossible to try on in the USA as there are no dealers.

as stated above, POC is great product.

I would personally look for the mips system for what ever you buy.


Unlike the rest of the body, heads are not prone to healing well.

I bought a sweet protection helmet for myself 2 seasons ago as a blind by because they arent sold in NA. Fit perfect based on measurements. I bought my GF one a couple weeks ago based on measuring hear hard, and it arrived and again fit perfect.

The helmets are awesome. Low profile, and very comfortable.
