Sweet Protection Igniter MIPS Helmet

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.

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!

Thanks!

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. Also...no 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.

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

    Ian.

    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).

    Does this helmet integrate well with POC goggles?

    Christian,



    They should fit well.



    Normally, goggles with a slightly curved top (of the goggle) will fit the very best.
