Conform to FIS Label

Helmet regulation (2014/15), that requires "Conforms to FIS" label is applicable at all levels without exception for GS, SG and DH. All helmets that meet this regulation in our store are labeled "FIS" for your convenience. Download the current SPECIFICATIONS FOR ALPINE COMPETITION EQUIPMENT and the USSA Helmet Rule for full details.

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.

Helmet Fit Check:

  • Your helmet should fit snugly and square on your head. Make sure that it is not tilted too far back or forward on your head.
  • Cheek pads touch, but do not press uncomfortably.
  • Make sure there are no gaps around your temples, brow or back of the neck
  • With the straps securely fastened, shake your head slightly from side to side and back and forth. If it moves or feels loose, then it is too big. (Also remember that the comfort liner will compress a little with use, so a new helmet should fit as tight as you can comfortably wear.)
  • Again with the straps fastened, try to roll the helmet forward off your head. If you can get it off, it is too big.
  • Feel for any pressure spots. Check for any soreness or red spots after you remove the helmet. If you find any, try the next size up or a different model. All brands fit a little different, so try on multiple styles for the best fit.

Technical Info

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 3-L MIPS, a unique, three-layer system developed in a close partnership between Sweet Protection and MIPS.

MIPS

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 subjected to an angled impact, the low friction layer allows the helmet to slide relative to the head, protecting against rotational motion.

Pre-Preg Carbon/Polyamide Fiber Hybrid Shell

The Carbon Fiber Hybrid shell is Sweet Protection's most advanced carbon fiber composite shell. Each shell is hand made in an advanced multi-direction lay-up, ensuring optimized impact and penetration performance for speed events. A high-pressure molding process minimizes voids and ensuring helmet integrity.

Gate Shields

EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) is molded into the main EPS liner to protect the shock-absorbing structure of the helmet from gate impacts. Gate Shields are placed both in the front and the back of the helmet for gate wrap protection.

Impact Shields

A molded shock-absorbing EPS liner with Impact Shield inserts that provide unsurpassed performance for shock absorbance. Premium impact protection technology that distributes impact over larger areas in crucial zones where the head needs it the most (front and back).
