null Bought a 2012 Strutter to replace my Predator which was starting to slip back on my head. New Strutter is even worse. They've added a ladder lock to keep the chin buckle from slipping which now makes it impossible to adjust the chin strap and front straps while wearing the helmet. Comes with two crappy pieces of foam padding( front or back) for a "custom" fit. I'm just not very impressed. Probably return this and try a Trident.

null Just replaced my old strutter that had some cracks in the Gel coat with a 2012 model. I could not be happier with the 2012 Fit. The wratchet on the back is a huge improvement. The helmet stays put and the shims are simple to adjust.
null Just got the new 2012 Strutter. Very disapointed. They moved their manufacture to China - not what you expect from Sweet. Different fit from the old one. Might be good if you have a long narrow head. This squeezes in on my temples, but can't be tightened enough front to back. It doesn't have the fit pads you can put anywhere like the old ones did. Those were great to fit just where you needed it. The new fit pad is a single piece that wraps from one side across the front to the other side. No way to use it if you don't need any extra squish on the sides and just need it tighter front to back. I will try it out with my old helemet's fit pads, but looking like this will have to be returned.

null The Sweet Protection Strutter is just that, Totally Sweet! I'm on my 3rd helmet and finally upgraded to the best! I wear the L/XL and the fit is perfect, but even the fit pads ooze cool if need them! When you put it on you just feel protected, gives you confidence, like you could go through a brick wall. The materials and craftsmanship are superb. Two things to be aware of though, no vents so it's warm in cold water, but can be a bit hot in climates like Texas, but one roll and that's fixed. When you get flushed in a wave the "bill" gets pulled on by the current, so tighten your strap when things get gnarly!
I continue to recommend this helmet to anyone who will listen, they're awesome. They are expensive, but like they say "we're protecting you brain!!"
The Strutter Helmet from Sweet is a great choice for river running and playboating. It has LFT shell technology (Long fiber thermoplastic) provides a safer platform by enhancing the elasticity and rigidity. LFT accompanied by a carbon fiber frontal shell for temple protection give you the most safety you can get in a low volume helmet. Also included is a special version of Sweet's OCCIGRIP to prevent the Strutter from sliding back on your head. The end result is a smooth, polished look for all day comfort and safety.
