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 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.
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.
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).
