Bicycle Helmet Care Guidelines
Thursday 17th July 2014
Helmets are made of materials that can be damaged by many common cleaners. Petroleum-based solvents or cleaners are especially dangerous. For best results, clean the helmet using a soft cloth or sponge, warm water, and mild dish soap.
Yes, Lice.... it can happen. Do not use a spray of any type. Place the helmet into an airtight plastic bag for 48 hours. Then, discard the pads and use a soft cloth or sponge, warm water, and mild soap to clean the surface. Safely discard the plastic bag and replace the pads. We offer genuine Giro and Bell replacement pad kits.
Excessive heat can damage the helmet (Heat damaged helmets will appear to have uneven or bubbly surfaces). After each use, you should allow the helmet to air dry and then store in a cool, dry place.
Painting and Stickering Helmets:
We strongly advise against painting, stickering or otherwise modifying a helmet because all of these things can damage the helmet and/or reduce its protective capabilities.
