Cleaning my LS2 Celtic (air-pump) Helmet: A pictorial guide!

Clean the upper surface of the helmet with a moist cloth. (Not wet with water dripping)

Take out each of the detachable pieces carefully.

Wash and rinse it with water, and then with very little detergent - wash it in the washing machine if you wish to.

Inside the LS2 Celtic

The air-pump button and the reset (air-release button)

The red piece which is screwed on (not the press buttons) has a hole if you notice. This is where the air is pumped into in the cheek / side pads.

The cheek / side pads with the air pump tube which goes inside the hole as shown above. (The tube is not seen clearly in the pic)

Wind deflector for the nose. Notice that it does not have holes in the center to avoid dust entering you nostrils.

Check our the 3 mount points for the wind deflector. My earlier LS2 Dragon did not have this. I had to play around pushing the fibre ends so that it fit in properly.

Front air-in vents

Rear air-out vents

The reflector which is very essential during long rides. Believe me, a friend of mine has the same helmet and this reflector does its job very well in bad light conditions. Very visible due to the High / Low beam of the following vehicle / bike.

Fitting it back. This is the most time consuming part of the cleaning process. When you fix the side pads, make sure you start from the rear end - this will help you because the rear reflector piece will have pressure marks which give you the exact position for the pads to be placed in. Then insert the air pump tube perfectly in the hole and lock the press buttons.

After you are done with that, clean it again with a moist cloth.

Pack it in the LS2 bag, and you are done.

Very nice pictorial guide Parrrys. Really helpful too. I was wondering how to clean my Cross helmet and here it is! I have yet to see if my helmet has all the details that the LS2 has though. Along with this, I have a Studds Downtown open face helmet too. Any tips on cleaning it? I guess we cannot detach the padding in it.
