  1. Mix lukewarm water with a mild detergent to create a cleaning solution.
  2. If you have any electronic equipment (GoPro, comms system, etc.), now is the time to remove them.

EXTERIOR

  1. Exterior: Begin by removing the helmet visor. This step gives you a clear surface to clean. Also, removal is the perfect opportunity to inspect the visor and screws. Replace if needed.
  2. Soak a clean microfiber cloth in the cleaning solution and wring out slightly. Ideally, the cloth will be wet but not dripping.

  1. Gently wipe down the outside of the helmet to remove dirt and grime.

INTERNAL PADS

  1. Remove helmet internals: cheek pads and helmet liner.
  2. Carefully handwash each item in the cleaning solution. Massage the pads in the solution to work out sweat and odors.
