Count on Italian innovation to keep you safe and stylish in the KEP Italia Cromo Matt Riding Helmet with Beige Chinstrap. Superior craftsmanship results in an elegant design that incorporates the latest in technical materials for ultimate protection. KEP Cromo helmets are made in three distinct parts for maximum comfort, allowing air to circulate through micro-slits in the front and rear. The unique front grille provides additional airflow that can be managed with a lever that moves up and down to accommodate your preference.
The shell of KEP helmets is made of polycarbonate which is embedded with double-density polystyrene for shock absorption upon impact. Dedicated to compliance with stringent safety standards, KEP outfits its helmets with a five-point padded chin strap attachment, flexible visor, and extended back for increased protection. With round and long oval options, these helmets are complete with a removable Coolmax liner for the perfect fit.
KEP Italia helmets are supplied with a KEP CLEAN cloth, which is recommended for cleaning the helmet. For daily cleaning, use a damp KEP CLEAN (or any other soft, clean cloth) and leave the helmet to dry naturally at room temperature. The internal lining, made up of one fully detachable element, can be cold washed by hand or in the washing machine. Avoid the use of all chemical detergents or solvents, especially for the shell of the helmet.
When not in use, it is best to store the helmet away from direct sunlight and from heat sources and it is recommended to replace it in its original packaging. Store the helmet in a position from which it is unlikely to fall to prevent the helmet from taking any avoidable knocks that may damage the helmet and reduce its protective capacity.
It is important to check your helmet often to ensure that there is no damage, such as cracks, detached parts, deformations, peeling or color alterations that may indicate significant deterioration of the helmet. Irrespective of any signs of deterioration, it is recommended to replace the helmet after 5 years because the protective capacity diminishes over time due to the aging of materials. The exact age of the helmet is indicated inside, under the lining, on a plate (not to be removed under any circumstances) which contains all the specific information for each helmet, including date of production.
If you come across cuts, scratches or any other type of damage, it is recommended that you contact KEP Italia to have the helmet examined before any further use. For safety reasons and to maintain conformity with certification, only the Italian headquarters of KEP Italia are authorized to dissemble, assemble, repair or replace the parts of the helmets. For the correct procedure for requesting the inspection, full check, repair or replacement of parts of a helmet, please refer to the retailer from whom the helmet was bought, who will set up all the procedures necessary.
