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.
