How often should a helmet be replaced.
There is general recommendation of replacing your helmet every three (3) years. If you are unsure of the condition of your helmet, or whether it should be replaced, call us or e-mail us for information.
How can I keep your helmets in good condition.
• It is important to always keep the helmet clean. Damage to the outer surface, the paint and the interior padding due to neglect can compromise the safety level offered by your helmet.
• Do not make any changes to the helmet. Any punctures in the outer shell could cause it to crack upon impact. Always use original spare parts in order to make sure your helmet is always in perfect condition.
• Do not apply any paint, stickers, petrol and other chemical solvents.
• Do not expose the helmet to temperatures greater than 50°; keep it away from heat sources like stoves, silencers, etc…
• Store the helmet in a safe and dry place, check its adjustments periodically, and repeat them prior to use if necessary
• The helmet is designed and manufactured to absorb the energy caused by impacts. After any accident or impact in which the helmet itself is involved, it is recommended to have it inspected by qualified personnel, and to replace it if necessary in order to ensure its continued safety.
Washing the helmet.
To clean the outer surface of the helmet, use a soft cloth with water and a small amount of mild soap (do not use synthetic products, chemicals or gasoline); allow it to dry in a well-ventilated area away from any heat sources. There are even specific products that can be utilized if your helmet requires a more thorough cleaning.
Cleaning the visors
In order to clean the exterior visor and/or sun visor, use a cloth that's suitable for delicate surfaces (so as not to leave any scratches), and moisten it with warm water and a small amount of mild soap.
For a more thorough cleaning, remove the visor from the helmet, immerse it in warm water and mild soap, and dry it with a clean cloth that's suitable for delicate surfaces.
Washing the interior elements
The removable interior can be washed by hand or in the washing machine (max. 30°).
First, remove the interior parts, taking care to make sure that the parts made from polystyrene do not come into contact with the water.
Once the interior parts have been removed, if you decide to wash them by hand, use a multi-purpose microfibre cloth, passing it over the protection elements (disassembled) and inside the helmet with a sodium bicarbonate and water solution, then rinse the cloth several times and repeat the operation.
If you decide to wash them in the washing machine, this can be done in warm water (maximum 30°), using mild soap as a detergent.
Remember to let the interior parts dry outside, away from any direct heat sources (avoid hair-dryers or heaters), in a dry and well-ventilated location. After washing, in order to prevent the formation of mould and unpleasant odours, all the interior parts must be thoroughly dried before using the helmet again.
