How do I take care of my helmet?
In order to get the most from your helmet, follow these simple steps:
Keep it in a helmet bag. Some come with a bag, or you can use a water-resistant drawstring bag to ensure nothing leaks onto/into your helmet when traveling (chain lubricants can damage the EPS structure).
Pack it on top. When packing your car or a bag for travel, always store your helmet on top. It’s made to structurally protect your head, not to bear unusually high loads that can occur during transit (always check it for damage after a long trip).
Keep it clean. If scrubbing it from time to time seems like a chore or hard to remember, take it into the shower with you from time to time and rinse it there.
Check the padding. Padding inside a helmet can become dislodged. Take a photo of the inside of your helmet when it’s new and make sure the pads are present and properly positioned every so often.
If you don’t shower with your helmet, remove the padding and wash it separately, but be sure to return all the bits in their correct places.
