Never use any solvents or abrasive cleaners to clean your helmet!! For optimum performance, rinse your helmet in warm water using a mild soap. If the outside is dirty with dried dirt and bugs, we suggest you place a wet towel over the helmet for at least one minute before wiping it clean. This softens the foreign objects before removal lessening the chance of scratches. Plastic polishes like Plexus or Honda polish will work fine to restore luster to your helmet as long as the dirt, grime and bugs have not been “scraped off” dry.
The multiple coatings on the face shield are resistant to light scratching, however, heavy, abusive scratching can break through the coatings and cause visible marks. Removing dirt and bugs with good cleaning practices and keeping your helmet in a RaceCase™ will significantly help to prolong the life of your helmet and face shields.
The removable, washable liner in all our helmets make it easy to clean. Even a man can do it.
Remove the cheek pads first by unsnapping the 3 (usually) button snaps on each one. Be careful not to “tear” the pad out, but carefully un-snap each button. The “crownliner” can be unsnapped (2) from the back of the head area and the pulled away from the helmet in the forehead area.
Note: the alignment arrows for re-installing the crown liner. Throw these three pieces into the washing machine and allow to air dry before re-installing.
The face shield can be cleaned with water and a clean micro fiber towel. If needed, mild diluted liquid hand
soap may be used to clean stubborn residue. Be careful not to use certain chemicals or glass cleaners as it
will react negatively with polycarbonates and the coatings on your face shield.
Certain common household chemicals will react negatively with the polycarbonates, fiberglass or coatings of your helmet. Avoid contact with acetone (nail polish remover), caustic solutions (ammonia-based cleaners), hair sprays containing methyene, chlorine from swimming pools or glues.
