How to Replace Helmet Liners

Save

A helmet's inner liner serves to improve comfort by providing an extra amount of padding and improves cooling by absorbing sweat from the top of the wearer's head. Just like any other piece of clothing, the accumulation of sweat can begin to form mildew that will eventually deteriorate the liner and create an unpleasant odor. While there is little that can be done for an older helmet, which uses a permanent liner, most newer helmets feature a removable liner that allows for a quick replacement.

  • Place the helmet upside down on a soft towel or cushion.

  • Pull the cheek pads away from the snap buttons on the side of the helmet. Set the cheek pads aside.

  • Pull the plastic tabs at the edge of the liner out of the helmet's shell near the eye port and at the base of the helmet. Pull the liner out of the helmet.

  • Place a new liner into the helmet and align it with the helmet. Push the liner tabs into the gap between the helmet's shell and foam at the eye port and the base of the helmet.

  • Hold the cheek pads in place against the inside of the helmet. Press the pads against the snap buttons until they are secured in place.

Tips & Warnings

  • Open the helmet's visor to provide extra room to pull the liner's tabs away from the eye port.
