Review: Sweet Protection Bushwhacker II MIPS

Sweet Protection Bushwhacker II MIPS

Do you like having unique attire with fashionable performance solutions or are you content wearing what everyone else has?  I think many of us would be happy to sport different product if we knew it performed well and matched our style.  The Norwegian company Sweet Protection specializing in helmets offers a unique solution to protecting the cranium with the Bushwhacker II MIPS.


Product Details:  Sweet Protection Bushwhacker II MIPS – Retail Price: $259.95 USD – 381 grams (Med.)

The combination of contrasting gloss and matte finish give the Bushwhacker great style points.

Sweet Protection Bushwhacker II MIPS
Note three large vents coming over the brow. Ventilation seemed more than adequate for muggy summer riding.


What I like:

The helmet offers a unique style that doesn’t scream enduro or XC yet offers excellent protection.  My size medium fits similar in size to most mediums and is very comfortable.  Ventilation seems very good especially given the level of protection.  Similar helmets I’ve worn with MIPS and added coverage and thickness seem a bit warmer with less effective ventilation.   The MIPS (Multi-directional impact protection system) is definitely a bonus that gives a added layer of protection to disperse concussion causing impacts.  Any added safety features to reduce chances of being concussed is a plus for me.

What I don’t like:

The helmet adjustment dial is a little on the small size.  This definitely isn’t a deal breaker for me, but the small plastic dial is a little harder to adjust while cruising along on the trail unless you are 5 years old and have tiny fingers.


The Sweet Protection Bushwhacker II is easily one of my favorite helmets with its unique styling, comfortable fit and added MIPS protection.   The helmet offers a great solution for those not content with fitting in with the crowd with less protection or comfort.  At $260 it’s a little on the expensive side, but that’s the price you pay for fashionable performance right?!
