Your helmet takes care of you when you hit the dirt, so it’s only fair you take care of it once you pick yourself up off it. Cleaning your dirt bike or mountain bike helmet is easy. You just need some time and the right tools.
• Clean microfiber cloth • Mild detergent • Warm water
Remove all external fixtures from your helmet. The visor, and things like GoPros, lights and mounts. To clean your internal pads, you’re going to need to remove them. Just detach them and you’re ready to go. If they look like they’ve seen better days, consider replacing them. If needed, we have a wide variety of MTB and motocross helmet parts to service your helmet.
QUICK TIP: Save the heat for your next run
Excessive heat can damage your helmet’s liner or shell. We recommend storing it in a cool, dry location out of sunlight. Avoid leaving your helmet in a hot car if you can.
Hand Wash (Recommended)
QUICK TIP: Gloves go on hands, not in helmets
Helmet care starts with preventative measures. Gloves go on hands, not in helmets. You touch a lot of nasty stuff with your gloves—don’t store them in your helmet.
QUICK TIP: Your bike is not a hanger
MTB and dirt bike helmets are designed to crush on impact to absorb energy in a fall. Don’t hang your lid on your bars or on your seat post where the risk of a drop fall is high.
Once your helmet and the internals are dry, you put it all back together. How easy was that? If your helmet has an adjustable visor, finish up by adjusting it back to your preferred position.
That’s it—you’re ready to get your shred on! Gear up, slip on your now-clean helmet and hit those sweet, sweet trails. Remember: To keep your lid at its freshest best, clean your helmet regularly. This will ensure you’re always looking, feeling, and smelling your race-day best.
Insect repellants and some sunscreens can cause your helmet's finish to peel. Apply these before you don your helmet and hit the dirt.
