Best Audio Quality

See all pictures

Sweet Protection has steadily carved its niche through crafting high-quality protective equipment for snowsports, paddlesports, and mountain biking. The Switcher is their take on a resort-focused helmet and has received numerous well-deserved accolades from some big names in the outdoor industry.

What separates the Switcher from other high-performance models in our eyes, is how well it pairs with Bluetooth audio chips and even old fashioned earbuds. The sound quality of course doesn’t supersede safety, but the Switcher can balance work and play as well as anything else on the market.

Sweet Protection included all of the typical safety features found in the best performing helmets and added an additional impact shield designed to distribute the force of impact across a wider area.

The Switcher shines in its capacity to make fine adjustments in a hurry. The vents open with easy-to-use sidetracks, the fit is adjustable through an easy-access dial in the back, and the chinstrap is magnetic. Sweet Protection’s proprietary take on helmet tech is certainly worth investigating for any skier serious about safety.
