A helmet that hurts will not be worn voluntarily. You should therefore pay attention to the comfort, such as the weight, ventilation and the head straps. In case of severe heat, you can also use cooling pads or helmet inlays.
The life span of the helmet is three to five years, depending on the material that the helmet is made of. The manufacturer will state the production date in the helmet shell.
Obviously, proper use and maintenance will ensure that the helm will reach the lifespan mentioned. The best way is to store the helmet in a dry, dark and cool location. Do not use solvents or abrasives when cleaning it. The sweatbands and lining can be replaced for most helmets. If you cannot properly clean the helmet, then this is often an indicator that it needs replacement.
