Helmet Care

Your motorcycle helmet is the most important piece of kit you’ll ever own.

You never know when your motorcycle helmet may be called upon. So it makes sense to look after it. A motorcycle helmet generally has a life of around five years; three years if used regularly. To get the most out of the protection your motorcycle helmet offers, you need to keep it in the best possible condition.
SHARP recommends you always follow the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions for the specific helmet you’ve purchased. If you only occasionally use your helmet we recommend you store it safely in a helmet bag, somewhere where it won’t be dropped or knocked. You should never store a helmet lying on its crown or near to a source of heat.
Once you’ve found your motorcycle helmet, the temptation is often there to personalise it with paint and stickers. This is a job best left to the professionals, who will use specialist paint and adhesive to ensure your new look doesn’t weaken the shell.
