- No helmet can protect the wearer against all impacts or injuries, nor is it possible to predict if a helmet will protect you in any given accident. Head protection is complicated and is beyond the scope of this manual. The function of the helmet is to reduce the chance or severity of a head injury in an accident. The helmet will not protect the parts of your head that are not covered and will not protect your neck or spine from injury. It will not proct you against head injuries that are not caused by impacts, such as shaking or vibration. For maximum head protection, the helmet must be of a proper fit and theretention system [straps] must be securely fastened under the chin. Failure to ensure a proper fit and securely fasten the helmet is dangerous as the helmet could come off or slip into an improper postion in an accident resulting in severe head or neck injury or death.
- A helmet, like all products, may wear out over time depending upon its use and the amount of care that it is given. Please check your helmet every time before use for damage and do not use a damaged helmet. Snell and Troy Lee Designs recommend retiring a helmet after FIVE (5) years from purchase even if there is no visible damage or defect. Of crouse with hard or frequent use this time may be reduced. Even with minimal use, a helmet is affected by things like the acids and oils in sweat, hair care products, pollution, exposure to UV rays, corrosive dirt or mud, being tossed around, etc. Of course, if your helmet becomes less than snug in fit, or damaged, it should be replaced before the five year. Replacing your helmet every 5 years allows you to take advantage of advances in helmet design and construction.
- ONE impact. After your helmet has been involved in one impact you must destroy it and replace it. Your helmet is designed to distribute the localized force of an impact over a larger area on the helmet. Even if your helmet looks undamaged its useful life is finished after one impact and will no longer provide protection in an accident. WIth a sufficient impact, the helmet's impact absorbing liner (EPS or "expanded polystyrene") becomes compacted. Once this has happened, the helmet no longer has the abilityy to absorb further impacts and protect your head. If you have any doubts for example, if you drop your helmet or if it is hit by something and you are not sure if the impact was sufficient to damage the helmet contact Troy Lee Designs before you use the helmet again. Illustration depicts damage to the inner EPS liner after an impact that may not be visible to the eye.

GENERAL WARNINGS/SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS
- Never modify your helmet. It is very dangerous to drill holes or cut the shell and/or the shock absoroption liner. Modifications can seriously weaken the helmet. Modifying the retention system weakens it, and may render the helmet useless in an accident. Removing parts such asthe mouth guard or rubber face rim can expose edges, which may injure you in an accident. Never sand or paint the outside of the helmets. Always use approved Troy Lee Designs parts when replacing visors, screws, pads or any other parts. A weakened helmet will not provide head protection.
- always check your helmet before use. Check your visor screws and tighten if necessary. Check for cracks in the helmet. If you find cracks or dmage, stop using the helmet immediately. Plastic components may start to wear out before 5 years from purchase. If you find deterioration in any part of a component, either replace that component or get a new helmet. If these parts come loose and/or fall off while you're riding, your vision may be blocked resulting in serious personal injury or death. Check the security of the retention system and always make sure that the comfort liner and the cheek pads are attached before you use the helmet.
- Do not purchase used helmets or any used parts for the helmet. Do not sell your helmet.
- Do not wear anything between helmet and head.
- Never allow others to use your helmet and do not use someone else's helmet.
- Helmet may reduce hearing. Be aware of your environment.
- Ride responsibly and do not take extra risks just because you are wearing a helmet.
- Do not hang or hook your helmet on anything. It may cause damage to helmet reducing the effectiveness of helmet's protection.
- Do not drop your helmet on a hard surface. Doing so could permanently damage it. If unsure if you have damaged the helmet contact Troy Lee Designs
- Never mount any rigid objects to the inside or outisde of your helmet other than those sold by Troy Lee Designs. This can weaken the helmet or cause injuries to you in an accident, by increasing the force on the helmet or the object could become a projectile.
FOLLOW THESE 10 STEPS TO ENSURE A PROPER FIT
- Fasten the chinstrap as tight as possible without causing you pain, restricting your ability to talk, or limiting your ability to open your mouth or swallow freely.
There must be no slack in the strap and it must be tight against your neck.
- Check whether the helmet inner lining fits snugly all around your head.
- Check whether the top pad presses closely on the top of your head.
- Check whether the cheek pads are in contact with your cheeks.
- Check to make sure there is no space around your brow under the lining where you can insert your fingers.
- With the chin strap secured, put your hands flat on the back of the helmet and try and push the helmet off by rotating it forward.
Next, put your hands on the front of the helmet above your forehead (or on the chin guard) and try to push the helmet off by rotating it toward the rear. (See Figure. A)
- If the helmet starts to come off in either the forward or rearward direction, do not use the helmet. Either the helmet is too large for you, or the chinstrap is not tightened enough.
Now, take hold of the helmet with a hand on each side. Without moving your head, try to move the helmet up and down and side to side. You should feel the skin of your head and face being pulled as you try to move the helmet. (See Fig. B)
- If you can move the helmet around easily, it is too big. Try a smaller size.
IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FIT PLEASE ASK YOUR TROY LEE DESIGNS RETAILER FOR ASSITANCE. REPEAT ALL THE ABOVE STEPS UNTIL YOU HAVE A PROPER FIT AND THE HELMET IS SECURELY FASTENED.
SIZING AND FIT
DETERMINING THE BEST SIZE
Measure your head size. Wrap a tape measure horizontally around your head at a height of about one inch (2.5cm) above your eyebrows and even with the tops of your hears to obtain largest measurement.
- Using the size chart below, select the helmet that is closest to your head size, i.e. "Large" helmet is best for head sizes(hat) 7¼ to 7⅜; (CM) 58-59; (Inches) 22 ⅞ - 23 ¼. The chart is just a guid to give you an idea of head/helmet sizing, it is not a substitute for trying the helmet on and using the steps below.
TRYING THE HELMET ON
- Firmly grip chin straps and expand the helmet opening by pulling the straps outward and then slide the helmet onto your head. Pull the chin straps only, not the chin strap covers. Pulling the covers may tear them. If the helmet is not tight, it is too big for you. Even if you feel it is difficult to put it on, please use the smallest helmet possible. You should feel a snug fit.

VISION AND EYE PROTECTION
- Always check for adequate vision, especially your
For example, when helmets are used'in
conjunction with goggles or other eye coverings,
vision restrictions can occur. Make sure for street
use your motorcycle or off road vehicle is equipped
with left and right mirrors, and use them for peripheral vision ana to enhance your forward vision of
traffic and other riding hazards. It is the responsibility of each user to insure that he or she can see
adequately with the helmet on prior to using it.
Never use a helmet or eye protection that
restricts your vision and inhibits your ability to
safely operate your vehicle. Failure to use proper
eye protection can cause an accident and result
in serious injury or death.
ALWAYS WEAR GOGGLES WHILE RIDING
All Troy Lee Designs helmets are designed for
use with eye protection. If eye protection is not
provided with the helmet, it is your responsibility
to obtain eye protection and use it. Tinted face
shields, goggles, or other forms of eye protection
should not be used at night or under other
conditions of poor visibility. Lenses damaged by
scratches (or dirty lenses) will reduce visibility,
especially at nignt or in low light or bright
conditions and should be replaced. Petroleum
products and other solvents may impair the
optical properties and reduce the mechanical
strength of shields and goggles.
WARNING:Do not use any pads that are not specifically designed for this SE4 helmet and sold by Troy Lee Designs. Aftermarket pads/lliners (or original equipment pads that are worn out) may not fit properly (or be too thick or too thin) causing vision obstruction or helmet slippage which could result in severe injury or death. Do not use any kind of solvent such as contact cleaner, thinner or gasoline. Do not use any Comfort Liner parts that are broken or damaged.
Padded lining, cheek pads (right & left) and strap covers (right & left) can be removed for cleaning. All Comfort Lining parts can be hand washed with mild soap such as dishwashing liquid and cold water. Pat dry with towel and then air-dry in shade before reinstalling.

- Helmets are energy absorbing devices intended to deform, fracture, crush, and collapse as they absorb energy generated by an impact. The SE4 helmet should be treated/handled carefully so that it will have all the available energy absorbing materials if you should ever need them. Your adult size Air helmet will give you years of good service if properly cared for.
- Never decorate your helmet with paint, decals, stickers or tape. Use only mild soap and water to clean the outside or inside of your helmet and the pads. Chemicals used in many cleaners can be harmful to the outer shell of your helmet. Frequently, this damage is not visible, and can result in premature fracturing of the shell when impacted.
- Use only mild soap and water to clean the interior of your helmet. All of our models have removable liner. These liners can be washed by hand in a bucket with mild soap and water, rinsed, then air dried only. Remove odors by rinsing with a solution of bicarbonate of soda ang water. Never use an oven or other heating source to dry the helmet. Temperatures in excess of 130F degrees can damage the energy absorbing inner liner. Do not allow the helmet to sit in a closed vehicle or in direct sunlight on hot days as temperatures can exceed 130F degrees. Never allow your helmet to come in contact with gasoline or other petroleum products, as this will cause serious damage to the energy absorbing liner and/or the outer shell of the helmet.
- Troy Lee Designs helmets should not be painted by ayone other than Troy Lee Designs. Many helmet components can be seriously damaged by chemicals and/or solvents contained in most paint or by careless handling during the repair process. Do not sand or use any abrasive material on the helmet.
