Proper Fitting/Adjustment and Care
1. Remove the helmet from the box and/or any packaging.
IMPORTANT: Do not remove any tags until you have properly adjusted the helmet and determined it is the proper fit for you.
2. The helmet should sit around the mid-forehead and above the ears. (pictured on this page)
3. Adjust the chinstraps.*†
4. Make sure Quick-release clip is completely inserted and secure, then you can “Enjoy the Ride”.
* NEVER WEAR A LOOSE OR AN UNADJUSTED HELMET WHILE RIDING A MOTOR VEHICLE. DO NOT TRY TO ADJUST HELMET WHILE IN MOTION ON A MOTORCYCLE. You may inadvertently pull the quick-release clip, thus causing injury to yourself and/or other motor vehicle operators.
† All the helmets are set with our default adjustments and these settings may not be right for you head shape, ear location, and/or under the chin fit. The chinstrap adjusts both at the point of apex under the ears (see above) and from the grooved ratchet-side of the clip (under chin-length adjustment).

ADJUSTING THE SIDE (EAR) STRAPS.
A. First, pull the “Under-the-Ear” adjustment rings  on both sides of the helmet up closer to the edge of the helmet as close as possible.
B. Hold the front part of the “V-strap (see image under ”Using your CHM-1 KIRSH Helmet) with one hand and pull down on the adjustment ring. This will allow the strap to position further back behind the ear. Repeat on the other side. (Note: Hold the back part of the “V-strap and pull down on the adjustment ring if you need the strap to move forward of the ear.)
C. The bottom of the “V” should now sit at the apex under the ear.
ADJUSTING THE STRAP LENGTH.
D. The strap comes packaged at the midpoint of the length. (ie not fully extended) To adjust this length, pull and work the strap through the chinstrap adjustment ring  located on the (male) end of the clip .
E. Once the desired length is reached and the side straps are adjusted, simply insert the grooved clip  into the quick-release mechanism . This will tighten as you push it through and you will hear a click for each fine adjustment.
F. To release the strap, pull on the quick-release tab  located on the (female) end of the clip. DO NOT PULL ON THIS TAB WHILE IN MOTION. It can result in injury to yourself or to other motor vehicle operators on the road.
PROPER CLEANING AND CARE
We urge caution, as improper cleaning of your motorcycle helmet may be damaging to the product and render it ineffective.
Petroleum and petrochemical products, cleaning agents, paints, or adhesives may cause damage that is not visible.
Use only mild soap and water to clean your motorcycle helmet.
No solutions containing bicarbonate and/or soda should be used for the helmet shell or for its liner.
DO NOT USE ACETONE or GASOLINE on the liner or helmet.
Clean the helmet interior and inner liner with a damp cloth and mild soap and water. Rinse with a damp cloth, and let dry naturally at room temperature.
Never use wax or polish of any sort for the outer shell.
High temperatures will damage the liner, as will strong solvents and gasoline products.
DO NOT MICROWAVE the liner or the helmet.
Some household pets like to chew on helmet liners that accumulate salt from perspiration. It is a good idea to keep your helmet in a secure place when not in use.
Store in a dry location away from heat and cold.
DO NOT PUT LINER INTO ANY HELMET SHELL other than a KIRSH CHM-1 HELMET SHELL that originally came with the liner. (See WARRANTY)

DEFLECTION/DISPERSION vs DELAMINATION/COMPRESSION
There’s a very specific and revolutionary a reason for it. A modern misconception is “lighter is better.” There is fluid in our liner. The EPS foam in most helmets is more than 90% air whereas fluid weighs more than foam (air), period. Our technology utilizes a completely different method. We call it DEFLECTION and DISPERSION. Traditional helmets have a soft shell meant to DELAMINATE (or rather break open) so that the energy gets to the foam. The fact that the helmet also delaminates means additional rotational and angular forces are introduced causing further injuries. Our helmet consists of a super hardened shell that is constructed to DEFLECT most of the energy away from the skull/brain in the event of an impact. Traditional helmets must COMPRESS that energy. The problem is foam needs to compress from both the topside and inside in order for it to stop the energy. Unfortunately, with foam that usually does not happen quick enough. So, with a KIRSH Helmet, we first DEFLECT that energy away as much as we can with the shell. Energy that does transfer to the liner from an impact is then DISPERSED omni-directionally throughout the fluid in the liner instead of passing straight through the head as with most foam-based helmets.

Absolutely! This low profile helmet brings the center of mass close to the skull and eliminates the majority of wind-drag coefficient and provides the rider with the smoothest riding experience. It’s not like a typical light weight helmet which tends to pull on the neck and head while riding. The heft actually helps keep the helmet where it should stay… on your head not actually trying to get ripped off by the wind.
Additionally, our unique silicone fluid casing acts as a conductor that pulls heat off the head, leaving no need for ventilation. Our unique fluid displacement liner conforms particularly to the individual rider’s head for extreme comfort and cooling feel.
