Explore what makes this helmet unique

Selecting your proper helmet size:

Measure your head circumference one inch above the eyebrows around to the largest point on the back of your head. Round up to the larger size when your measurement is between two sizes.

Sweet Protection's Safest Helmet Yet

Ski racers are accustomed to icy conditions and fast speeds, and the Volata race helmet utilizes all of the latest safety technologies to create a helmet that even the most aggressive racers will wear with confidence.

The Volata program is Sweet Protection’s top of the line race helmets. Co-developed with two-time World Cup champion and Olympic gold medalist Aksel Lund Svindal, all helmets feature a shock absorbing EPS liner that includes Sweet Protection’s proprietary Impact Shields to help better distribute impact forces around the more angular front and back of the skull.

All Volata MIPS helmets feature the brand new 3-L MIPS, a unique, three-layer MIPS system developed in a close partnership between Sweet Protection and MIPS specifically made for Sweet Protection race helmets.

MIPS

The MIPS technology is scientifically proven to reduce rotational motion by absorbing and redirecting rotational energies and forces transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head.

In a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System (BPS) the shell and the liner are separated by a Low Friction Layer. When a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System is subjected to an angled impact, the low friction layer allows the helmet to slide relative to the head. The MIPS BPS is designed to add protection in helmets against the rotational motion.

The rotational motion is a combination of rotational energy (angular velocity) and rotational forces (from angular acceleration) that both affects the brain and increases the risk for minor and severe brain injuries. MIPS BPS has been scientifically proven to reduce rotational motion when implemented in a helmet by absorbing and redirecting rotational energies and forces transferred to the brain.
