Caring For Your Motocross Helmet

Riding dirt bikes across uneven terrain is an exhilarating experience, but it can be dangerous. Therefore, you need to wear the correct safety equipment while participating in the sport. Motocross helmets are an important piece of kit, and when cared for they’ll be effective for many uses. We’ve put together a guide to help you care for your helmet properly to get the best performance.

Get The Right Helmet

Above all, it’s important that your helmet fits you correctly. An ill-fitting motocross helmet won’t provide appropriate protection, leaving you at risk of serious head injuries. A helmet is usually one of the most expensive pieces of safety gear you’ll buy, so it’s worth making sure you’re investing wisely. The majority of helmets are designed to last for up to 8 years, but they can break before this time. You must purchase a new one after any crashes where the helmet takes a hit, or when its label says it’s past its prime. Whichever comes sooner.

How To Identify A Motocross Helmet That Needs Replacing

A damaged helmet is not fit for purpose. They are only designed to take the impact of a crash once. Don’t risk re-using a motocross helmet that’s taken damage. As well as that, any cracks, crushed foam or other imperfections can indicate that the protective components are compromised. If there’s any indicator that it’s taken an impact, it’s time to seek a replacement.

Clean Your Motocross Helmet

Motocross can get muddy, and your helmet can end up getting pretty soiled. Mud can splash everywhere in wet conditions, and you can end up with a thick coating of dust when it’s dry. As well as that, riding can often make you build up a sweat, leading to the inside fabric of your helmet getting a bit stinky. Therefore, we recommend a good clean after every ride.

You can put any removable fabric parts straight into the washing machine with your other gear. This will get any sweat and dirt out easily, and can safely be washed on a slow spin cycle. The rest of the helmet can be wiped down by hand with a gentle soap and a clean cloth. If the dirt is really set into the nooks and crannies, an old toothbrush ought to get rid of it.
