Sweet Protection is one of the main partners of the first UCI Pro Cycling Team from Norway; Uno-X Pro Cycling Team. They will be using ‘Sweet’s’ Helmets, Eyewear and off-bike wear the next seasons when trying to make a mark in the major pelotons.
It’s extremely important for us to partner with teams that share our passion for pushing industry standards to the limits, a passion we’ve seen in Uno-X.
“To collaborate with two Nordic pro teams like Uno-X Pro Cycling Team and Pole Enduro World Team is huge for Sweet Protection. It’s extremely important for us to partner with teams that share our passion for pushing industry standards to the limits, a passion we’ve seen in both Uno-X and Pole. There is no doubt that partnerships like these will impact the products we create. Our team athletes are important contributors enabling us to create the best possible products for the future. We’re extremely excited to see what we can achieve together in 2021 and further”, says Bjørn Fjellstad, Managing Director at Sweet Protection.
Taking the hunt to the professional level.
The Falconer helmet is inspired by the aerodynamic properties of the peregrine falcon, the fastest
member of the animal kingdom. That’s why it’s the chosen helmet of the Uno-X Pro Cycling Team, the very
first UCI Pro Team from Norway.
The Falconer Aero Helmet is a top-of-the-line helmet for fast-paced cycling. The helmet comes
with our unique easily removable Aerocovers™ to lower the aerodynamic drag even further. The aerodynamic
geometry is developed to provide extreme ventilation, the result is a quicker and more comfortable ride – all
wrapped in our four-piece variable elasticity shell technology for great protection. This model is equipped with
the Mips, a low-friction layer solution designed to reduce rotational forces transferred to the brain. Happy
hunting. Weight: 285g + 45g Aerocovers™
Never laugh at somebody else’s failure.
If you think drag is bad when riding your bike, talk to someone developing practical
solutions for supersonic flights. In 1945 the U.S. National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, nowadays
known as NASA, came up with an ill-suited solution for drag reduction on jet engine intakes. It turned out
to be the perfect solution for the Tucker helmet, creating ventilation without causing drag. It will cut
through air like a knife with or without the visor, making it the most versatile aero helmet available. Now
it’s up to you to tuck and go.
Breaking the mold of traditional time-trial helmets, the Tucker Mips is lightweight, airy and
low profile enough for road races, while still on par with the fastest dedicated time-trial helmets on the
market. The helmet is heavily tested in a wind tunnel enabling us to construct the Tucker Mips with an extremely
low drag coefficient. The visor can easily be removed and attached with hidden magnets, and the helmet also
works well with regular eyewear. This is our fastest helmet yet, all made possible through a groundbreaking
carbon fiber reinforced ventilation system.
