INSTRUCTIONS As a protective measure, this helmet must be worn at all times during athletic activity. For adequate protection, it is important that the helmet be sized correctly and fit the head properly to offer optimum comfort and safety. The helmet should be adjusted to fit the user; for example, the straps should be positioned so that they do not cover the ears, the buckle should be kept away from the jawbone, and the straps and buckle should both be adjusted so that they are comfortable and secure. After properly buckling and adjusting the strap, always check that the helmet is not excessively tight; nor should it move freely back and forth (see Fig. 1). HELMET ADJUSTMENT Put on the helmet by rotating the rear dial (clockwise to tighten and counter-clockwise to enlarge) until you obtain the desired fit (Fig. 2). Position the size adjustment system in the zone of the nape (Fig. 3), regulating it in height. Close the strap by inserting one side of the buckle into the other, (Fig. 4). Tug to check that the buckle is secure. Adjust the length of the neck strap to fit the helmet securely to your head. The rubber ring should be placed at the end of the strap to keep it from dangling. To remove the helmet, open the neck strap by pushing both side buttons on the snap buckle at the same time (Fig. 4). WARNING! DO NOT use the helmet if you cannot adjust it to achieve the correct fit in accordance with these instructions or the helmet does not feel comfortable and stable while riding. Contact your dealer or call the manufacturer directly for assistance. REPLACEMENT PARTS If necessary, contact the dealer or the manufacturer directly. None of the original components of the helmet may be changed and/or removed without the manufacturer’s approval. The helmet should not be modified to attach any accessories except for those supplied by the manufacturer. ACCESSORIES Check with the dealer or manufacturer whether accessories are available. If they are supplied with the helmet, follow the mounting instructions that come with the accessory. Only accessories approved by the manufacturer should be used. CLEANING Only clean the helmet with water, neutral pH soap, and a soft, clean cloth, allowing it to air dry at room temperature. The inner lining should be washed by hand in cold water. If it is removable, it can be removed and washed by hand in cold water or in the washing machine (max. 30°C/85°F). In no case should chemical detergents or solvents be used. Petroleum-based solvents are especially dangerous. They can damage a helmet so that its protective qualities are significantly impaired. STORAGE When not in use, the helmet should be stored away from direct sunlight and sources of heat, and we recommend putting it back in the original package. Do not leave your helmet in your car or anywhere else near direct or indirect heat. Do not apply adhesives, solvents, stickers, or paint that do not comply with the manufacturer’s specifications. Any alteration or intervention not provided for may impair its protective function. TRANSPORT Given the type of device (helmet), no particular instructions are necessary for its transport. WARNING! DO NOT use the helmet if it has been exposed to high temperatures and/or damaged by heat. LIFETIME & INSPECTION The helmet’s lifetime depends on a variety of factors which cause its deterioration, including sudden temperature changes, degree of exposure to sunlight, and the intensity of use. Inspect the helmet regularly to check for any damage! Cracks, detached parts, warping, flaking, and changes in colour are significant elements for verifying the helmet’s state of deterioration. In any case, we advise replacing it after approximately three (3) years from the original date of purchase, as over time its capacity for protection decreases due to aging of the materials. Inspect helmet periodically for damage and/or deterioration. If you find any cuts, abrasions, or other visible damage, contact the manufacturer to have the helmet inspected before further use.
