A Nemesis of Time

The Redeemer 2Vi® breaking the mold of traditional time trial helmets and is Sweet Protection’s most advanced time trial helmet, developed with aerodynamic know-how from Formula 1 and in close collaboration with the Uno-X Pro Cycling Team and 2022 U23 ITT World Champion Søren Wærenskjold.

Designed to reduce the aerodynamic drag to a minimum and get the maximum out of the best in the world. In countless wind tunnel tests and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, the experts succeeded in developing an outperforming aero helmet.



Uno-X Pro Cycling Team rider Søren Wærenskjold was a model and case study crucial in the development and aerodynamic testing (both CFD and wind tunnel). The goal was to simulate an optimal time trial position to best fit the helmet to the rider. To achieve optimized airflow, specifically at the limiting regions around the head, shoulders, back and the front torso, the shape of the helmet and other features were re-imagined.

"The Redeemer 2Vi® Mips is a seriously fast helmet. It’s definitely a force to be reckoned with.“
