Do you have helmet decals for my helmet?
Other than a leather helmet our reflective helmet decal kit will
fit virtually any motorcycle helmet made. There are twenty-two
precut pieces in each kit. The kit's design allows a rider to
mix and match the arrangement of each piece to conform to the
helmet they are being applied to. This allows the rider to create
their own design by either leaving some pieces out or placing
different pieces next to each other. If a piece is too long you
can always shorten it using a sharp pair of scissors. Complete
instructions on how to do this are included with each kit.
How do the decals reflect light? The
decals are made in layers. The top layer is a translucent color
or clear layer. The second layer is made of small glass like beads
or lenses. The third layer is a bright reflective material that
reflects light back through the second and top layers. The second
layer amplifies or intensifies the reflected light as it passes
back through it on its way out to the driver of an approaching
How well do the decals adhere to the helmet?
They stick very well to the helmet's surface. The adhesive used
is pressure sensitive. The harder you rub when applying them the
more they stick. The instructions included with each kit advise
you to only apply light pressure when first applying the decals
to give you the opportunity to reposition a piece if necessary.
Once all the decals are applied to the helmet you should apply
pressure one or two more times to set them in place permanently.
How long do the decals last? We use
vinyl materials that have a five to seven year "exterior"
life span when making our decals. Considering the fact that you
should replace your helmet at least once every five years the
decals should outlast your helmet.
Are the decals removable? Well that
is the sixty-four thousand dollar question isn't it? I know we're
dating ourselves here, but when first applied the decals can be
removed with very little effort. After the decals have been on
the helmet for a long period of time, say several months it will
depend on the surface of your helmet. Some painted helmets with
a clear coat on them will not give up the decals easily. We use
a product named LiftOff®, available at most ACE® hardware
stores to remove any adhesive residue left behind after removing
Why would we remove the decals on a helmet?
Why? Well to change the design of course!
