Helmet Care

General Care

Let’s face it, Icon® helmets look cool and you want to keep them that way. We’ve found the following methods work really well to keep our helmets looking sharp and ready to roll. Remember, never use gas, pre-mix, carb cleaner, brake cleaner or any other random unlabeled spray can lying around the garage. Chemicals and harsh solvents can break down the materials in your helmet; it’s like using brake cleaner to polish your plastics—don’t do it!

Interior Cleaning

1. Remove interior lining as shown on page 10.
2. Soak your interior in a mild solution of baby shampoo.
3. Rinse in clean water several times until all soap is gone.
4. Let interior air dry and replace accordingly.
* Never machine wash or dry your helmet interior.

Exterior Cleaning

1. Remove interior lining as shown on page 10.
2. Soak your interior in a mild solution of baby shampoo.
3. Rinse in clean water several times until all soap is gone.
4. Let interior air dry and replace accordingly.
* Never machine wash or dry your helmet interior.

Exterior Cleaning (Gloss Helmets)

1. Lay a warm, wet, cloth towel on the exterior of the helmet for at least 5 minutes to soften dried on bugs. (Don’t skip this step!)
2. Using a fresh, wet, clean cloth and mild dish soap wipe down the exterior to get rid of road grime and softened bug guts.
3. Use another fresh dry cloth towel to dry the helmet and get rid of any water spots.

Exterior Cleaning (Rubatone Helmets)

1. Lay a warm, wet, cloth towel on the exterior of the helmet for at least 5 minutes to soften dried on bugs.
2. Remove the now softened bugs and road grime with a light blotting action. For this use the soft part of your helmet bag provided or a clean microfiber cloth.
* Never rub aggressively with anything on the Rubatone™ or you can ruin the finish.

Maintenance

Your helmet is equipped with a scratch resistant fog free shield. Common household cleaners such as glass cleaners, surface cleaners, and furniture polishes, can leave behind unwanted residues, or in some extreme cases damage the shield itself. It is our recommendation the same steps outlined above for cleaning the exterior of your helmet should be applied to cleaning the exterior of your shield. Use no cleaners or detergents on the inside of your shield. Using anything other than a clean soft cloth, micro fiber cloth, or the bag supplied with your helmet, will ruin or reduce the effectiveness of the fog free coating.

Storage

1. For gloss helmet finishes, use spray automotive wax that is specifically designed for cars with a clear coat. (Available at any automotive store.)
2. For matte finishes, you know better than to polish a matte finish don’t you?

Transport

It is a good idea to protect your helmet if it is stored for a period of time. Store your helmet inside the helmet bag we have provided in a secure, dry place out of direct exposure to sunlight.
