How to properly clean the helmet visor

Two are the ways to clean the visor:

Basic cleaning
Accurate cleaning

Basic visor cleaning

Due to the dirt, it’s necessary to make frequent and quick basic cleaning of the visor. You just need warm soap water and a soft cloth or wet wipes specifically designed for helmet cleaning and remove the majority of the dirt.

Accurate cleaning

Occasionally a more accurate cleaning of the visor will be necessary in order to ensure that especially the dried dirt or grime is thoroughly removed.

When cleaning your visor, it is recommended to detach it and clean it separately from the helmet in order to reach each point. This should be an easy task, anyway we suggest you to first check the instruction manual available on our website under each Caberg helmet model page.

Once the visor is detached from the helmet, you have to check if your helmet model is equipped with an anti-fog lens, and in case remove it as well from the visor.

At this point you can start with the basic and quick cleaning of the dust on your visor using a wet wipe. Then you can proceed with a more accurate cleaning inside and out of the visor using a non-abrasive cloth and a specific helmet cleaning detergent to work on the dirt, gradually loosening it from the visor. If you do not have a specific helmet cleaning detergent, you can use a mild laundry detergent or mild soap. If there are dried-on bugs or dirt on your visor difficult to remove, you can soak the visor in a small basin with warm water.

Once the visor is clean, use a fresh towel or microfiber cloth to carefully dry it, to avoid halos and stains.

WARNING: do not attempt to clean the anti-fog lens, if present, with water or any mild detergent. You can gently clean the lens with a dry micorfibre cloth to avoid scratches.

Well, now you should know what are the steps for maintaining the visor cleanliness and ensuring optimal visibility.
