How to use and maintain the helmet

The newly bought helmets are particularly bright, but after a period of time, the gloss is not as good as before, and even the edges of the EPS of the inner shell are pitted, and some helmets have a lot of sweat and smell. This is caused by not knowing how to maintain the helmet. Here are some tips for daily helmet maintenance.

1、The helmet shell

Keeping the helmet shiny at all times is a somewhat contradictory problem, because the gloss of the helmet is due to the ultraviolet rays of the sun and the dust from the surrounding attached to our helmet during our daily riding, which makes it lose its past. luster. So although we have no way to avoid it, but at least we can think of ways to make the gloss last longer, focusing on the two main reasons that make the helmet dim; first of all, I suggest that you don’t go out under the scorching sun at noon, it is best to choose morning and afternoon.

The fake one-piece helmet cannot be exposed to the sun and rain, or it will be glued soon. Another thing is to wipe the surface of the helmet with a cotton swab soaked in alcohol (industrial alcohol) or white electric oil every time you come back. Never use a hard cloth to wipe the helmet shell! Remove the stains and dust on the helmet surface.

2、The inner shell EPS

For the inner shell EPS, there is no need for maintenance, but after a long time, the edges of the outer shell will be bumpy and not as smooth as the original. For these places where the depression is not deep, we use the shaft of the screwdriver to slightly remove it. Press hard on the protruding area around the concave part, that is, press down the high part to be as flat as the concave part. Remember to use the screwdriver shaft to choose a round and move back and forth to press, not staying in one place to press! For those deep recessed places, we use the mosquito coil that we use to smoke mosquitoes, and light it first. Then use the lighted part to bake the recessed area. When the EPS encounters high temperature, it will foam.

3、Daily cleaning of the lining

It is recommended that you clean the inner lining every time you return from a ride. When removing the inner lining, do not suddenly tear it with strong force. It is very easy to tear off the Velcro behind the inner lining and the inner lining together. Sometimes the inner lining is torn. The disassembled inner lining cannot be washed in a washing machine, nor can it be brushed with a brush. This easily deforms the inner lining and de-elasticity.
