How to Properly Care for Your Helmet

Proper helmet care is necessary to keep your head piece functioning as it should. Along with a pristine appearance, a well-cared for head covering will also offer better protection. Keep your helmet in good order by applying the following maintenance tips.

Leather Helmets – Basic leather cleaner should be applied (follow recommended instructions on package)

Gloss or Matte Finish Helmets– Apply a mild soap and warm water to keep the head piece clean. A soft cloth can be used as well. Never apply chemical products or cleaners to the helmet surface.


Face Shields – Also use mild soap and warm water with a soft cloth to remove dirt and debris from face shields. Never add chemical products or cleaners to this process. Doing so could result in discoloration or surface damage.
