The fit of your riding helmet is not only important as a comfort consideration. The protection provided by the helmet is directly related to ensuring the fit is correct for each individual equestrian. It is recommended that the advice of an expert is sought when purchasing new riding headwear. Always ensure the safety harness is correctly fitted and fastened.
To be certain of your helmet’s history, it is recommended to purchase a new helmet at all times. Any helmet that has encountered a sharp knock, has been dropped or has received an impact should be replaced immediately to ensure optimum safety and effectiveness.
Always check your helmet carefully for signs of wear on both the inside and outside – this includes the safety harness. Replace immediately if wear is excessive. When in doubt, have your helmet checked by an expert.
Any repairs or modifications to a helmet could alter its effectiveness and should therefore never be carried out.
Consider replacing your helmet every 3 – 4 years to ensure maximum protection.
Clean the helmet with water or a non-detergent based soap and allow to dry naturally, away from direct sunlight.
Store your helmet away from direct sunlight.
Safe temperature range: -20° Celsius to 50° Celsius.
Exceeding the recommended temperature range may compromise the helmet’s integrity and must be avoided.
Avoid contact with any corrosive or other abrasive substances.
Riding helmets are designed with the sole intention of protecting the horse rider when engaged in equestrian activity – it is NOT suitable for any other purpose. The wearing of protective headgear is not a guarantee against injury, disability or death.
