CARE & MAINTENANCE

Keep your helmet performing and looking like new.

Your new SMK Helmet is designed and built to give you many years of  safety and style. Properly caring for and maintaining your helmet will maximize its lifespan and ensure you are fully covered by the SMK warranty.

SAFETY AND NORMS OF USE

  • In case of accident, the helmet represents a protective element, which reduces injuries and head damage. This notwithstanding, it cannot alone prevent serious and/or fatal injuries due to the specific accident dynamics, therefore drive carefully.
  • When driving any motorcycle, always wear the helmet properly fastened in order to fully exploit its protection.
  • Never wear scarves under the fastening system nor caps of any sort under the helmet.
  • The helmet can muffle traffic noises. However make sure that you can hear essential sounds such as horns and emergency vehicle sirens.
  • Always keep the helmet away from heat sources like the exhaust muffler, the bag seat or the interior of a vehicle.
  • Do not modify nor damage the helmet or part of it for whatsoever reason. Use only original accessories and/or spare parts suitable for your specific helmet model.
  • Damage resulting from accidental fall may not be visible; helmets, which received violent impacts, are to be replaced.
  • In case of doubt about the helmet integrity and safety, avoid using it and contact an authorized dealer to let it check.

HELMET CARE

  • Please ensure that your helmet outer shell does not come in contact with any petroleum/gasoline product.
  • Do not hang your helmet on the mirror/handle bar of the two-wheeler.
  • Do not repaint your helmet. repainting of helmet can reduce impact absorption capacity.
  • Do not use dark/tinted visors in poor visibility conditions.
