2012 Sweet helmets

Has anyone heard what is going on with sweet this year. I have a helmet on order and was told that I might not get it for a long time. I was told that there was no qc in factory and pretty much the whole 2012 inventory is no good. Outdoor play says different, and claims they are getting them at the end of may. Is that accurate or a load of bs?

I received an email about a 2012 sweet helmet I ordered. It basically said there was a problem at the factory and that Sweet was scraping the helmets they were about to ship, and that they were expecting to have new ones ready to ship sometime the end of May. Stinks there is a delay but, I'm glad they realize their mistake, fixed it and let their customers know of the delay. I don't remember too many of the details and deleted the original email.

late may

Yup, that was the same info we got from Sweet. QC issue and rather than rolling the dice and shipping a bunch of helmets that may or may not have ended up being a warranty problem, they trashed them all and are starting over.
Good call on their part.

The latest we heard was end of May too. I guess we will know in a couple of weeks if that will hold true.

We do have a shipment of previous years helmets in limited sizes & colors that they had left over in Norway arriving on Tuesday though, so you might see those arriving to some other Sweet dealers too.
