Then here’s comes a question, how to keep ILM black motorcycle helmets clean and shiny?


After your ride, start by wiping away any dirt and bugs on the surface of the ILM helmet using warm water. Then, use a soft cloth soaked in a cleaning agent or alcohol to wipe the helmet's surface. You can also apply wax to maintain the shine of the helmet's exterior. (For minor scratches on the shell, you can apply toothpaste to the affected area and gently rub back and forth.)

Visor/Face Shield:

Remove the visor and rinse it with clean water. During the rinsing process, use a clean cotton cloth to gently wipe the visor. Avoid using any hard objects that may scratch the surface. Avoid touching the visor directly with your hands and promptly clean any fingerprints from the surface.

Inner Liner:

Most helmet liners are removable and ILM is no exception. Take out the liner and soak it in warm water with laundry detergent or dish soap. Gently rub the liner and then rinse it with clean water. Let it air dry.

Regularly check the fasteners and use a brush to remove any dirt or sand between them. You can also apply a few drops of lubricating oil to keep the fasteners smooth.

*When the ILM helmet is not in use, store it in a helmet bag in a cool, dry place, away from high temperatures, humidity, and heavy pressure.
