DO NOT MODIFY YOUR HELMET
Modifying your helmet may increase your risk of serious injury or death in an accident. Do not modify your helmet.
Modifications include the following:
• Drilling holes.
• Cutting shell, liner, or strap.
• Modifying the retention system, including adding a chin cup.
• Removing parts.
• Installation of accessories that are not manufactured by Vega for this helmet.
Care & Maintenance:
Never leave your helmet in your car or anywhere near direct or indirect heat. If your helmet deteriorates because of exposure to heat, it is not covered by any Vega warranty.
No helmet can protect the wearer against all possible impacts.
• The helmet is designed to be retained by a strap under the lower jaw.
• To be effective, a helmet must be worn correctly. To check for the correct fit, place the helmet on your head and make any adjustments indicated. Securely fasten retention system. Grasp the helmet and try to rotate it to the front and rear. A correctly fitted helmet should be comfortable and should not move forward to obscure vision or rearward to expose the forehead.
• No attachments should be made to the helmet except those recommended by the helmet manufacturer.
• The helmet is designed to absorb shock by partial destruction of the shell and liner. This damage may not be visible. Therefore, if subjected to a severe blow, the helmet should be destroyed and replaced even if it appears undamaged.
The helmet may be damaged and rendered ineffective by petroleum and petroleum products, cleaning agents, paints, adhesives and likewise, without the damage being visible to the user.
• A helmet has a limited lifespan in use and should be replaced when it shows obvious signs of wear.
• Face shield cleaning should be done only with warm water and a microfiber cloth. Laying a microfiber cloth, soaked in warm water, across the shield will soften the bug debris and make cleaning easier. Take great care not to expose your shield to any chemicals.
To prolong the usable life of your helmet, you must clean it regularly. This does not mean a full strip-down wash every time, that level of clean can be reserved for once or maybe twice a season. More frequent, routine cleanings can be as simple as a quick wipe down with a wet towel, or a limited wash of the easily removable parts.
After every ride, we encourage you to wipe the residual sweat from the surface of the interior lining. If you use sunblock, makeup, or hair products, you may want to pull out the cheek pads and headliner and give them a quick rinse in the sink. Build-up of these products can become difficult to remove after a while.
Do not use polishes on helmets with matte finish paintwork; simply use a mild detergent and water for cleaning.
Heavily soiled areas can be gently cleaned using a soft toothbrush or a cotton swab. The shield and any other parts can be removed for cleaning.
All removable parts of the interior comfort liner should be removed and washed by hand. Fixed padding should be wiped with a damp cloth, again using only a neutral cleaning agent. Antibacterial detergents have proven useful in removing smells. The EPS liner can also be wiped down with a mild cleaner. Make sure that everything is dry before putting the padding back into the helmet shell.
As EPS is neither solvent nor heat-proof, the impact absorption liner must be treated with particular care during the cleaning. As in all other cases, the EPS liner should be cleaned using only a damp cloth to avoid scratches or indentations.
Although we recommend changing a helmet every 3 to 5 years, the accumulation of sweat, humidity, and dirt can deteriorate the fabric and stitching, and this may cause odor.
Dirt and debris can find their way into the venting of your Vega Helmet. Compressed air cans are used to blow the debris from the ventilation system. It is recommended that you remove any removable pads before doing this process
