Please reach out to service@helmade.com and we will find an individual solution for your helmet paintwork.

  4. Why does it take three weeks to get my helmet delivered?

    What makes a helmade product so different from other helmets you can buy, is the handmade process behind it. Each and every helmade product is hand painted. This process takes time. We want to make sure we do it right and you get delivered a true helmade experience.

  5. How can I make sure that I order my correct size?

    Finding your perfect fit is key when buying a helmet but it is not that complicated and, yes, it can easily be done from home. All our helmets have a very comfortable natural fit and our sizing table tells you your helmet size. Using a soft measuring tape, measure around the largest diameter around your head. Make sure you keep the tape above your ears and start approx. 2cm above your eye browns. Take several measurements to make sure you got the largest measurement around your head.

    Find the correct size of your helmet in our fitting guide, including individual sizing tables, in our helmade configurator. If you're not sure about your correct  size, we're more than happy to assist you based on all our experiences. Just reach out to us via service@helmade.com.

  6. Who is doing the paint job?

    We are working with a carefully selected base of production partners who all are obsessed about the handmade process of customizing a helmet, including one of the best helmet designers in four wheels motorsports, Paul Seliger from Five Star Designs Germany. Paul and his team has great expertise in custom helmet designs for professional motorsports athletes from various race series around the world. Five Star Designs put a stamp on the world of kart racing and is known for his expressive, fresh design work. In our helmade magazine, you can learn more about Five Star Designs.

    Another key partner for us is MK Art Productions from Barcelona Spain. The helmet artist Miki Vinola has rich experience in helmet design and painting in two-wheels racing. From MotoGP to TT Racing, Miki is doing custom paintworks for many professional riders. We are happy to have him on board as he brings in all needed expertise to handle the many diifferent types of motorcycle helmets. You can be sure that the people touching your helmade product are all true experts for painting helmets, from disassembling the helmet to a perfect finish.

  7. What lacquers do you use and can I ask for a special color code?

    We only use high quality lacquers for our paintings which we’ve thoroughly selected to reach the best possible result. For our neon and effect colors we trust on the products from HOUSE OF KOLOR®. And yes, it is possible to get your helmet painted based on a special color code, for example to get a helmet design in your bike colors. This is possible for almost all existing bike colors, as BMW, Moto Guzzi, Ducati, Yamaha, Honda and many more. Just let us know your wished color and we check the availability for you.

  8. Is it allowed to paint motorbike helmets?

    Yes, it is. All helmets in our range and most of the helmets out there can be painted. Nevertheless there are several things to consider before painting a helmet. The most important one is safety. Safety goes beyond any style aspect. One of the reasons why helmade exists is to make professional helmet design more accessible to the many people. We are about helmets and all involved processes. We're not painting a helmet from time to time between doing other paintjobs. Additionally we're close partners of all major helmet brands and get exposed to product insights and technical specifics. To check if your existing helmet can be customized by us, please contact us and we'll get back with an answer.

  9. Can I return a customized helmade product?

    As your customized helmet is individually produced for you by order, it’s not possible to simply return your product. Of course we trust in our work and the handmade quality in all we do, so if you will ever be not satisfied with your helmade product, feel free to contact us and we will do our best to make you a happy helmade customer. That's our job. For all non-customized products you have the right to return within 14 days without giving any reason.

  10. How can I clean my helmade product?

    Warm, soapy water is an ideal way to clean your helmet's exterior and visor, too. By using a soft, non-abrasive towel or rag you can carefully remove dirt, and a soft brush or Q-tip to remove any insects that stuck into a vent. Have in mind that a thorough drying, which can take up to three days in a well-ventilated area, is key. Don't use heat. Dry your helmet after a hot and sweaty day. Worst thing you can do is pulling a lid off your sweaty head and putting it in a dark, damp storage. For helmets with a glossy finish use a qualitative helmet polish to clean the lacquering and make your helmet shine like the sun again.

  11. Is it possible to order helmade.com vouchers?

    Yes, it is. We are offering vouchers with different values which can be combined to one individual amount or of course ordered separately. Are you interested in a very personal gift? Then you can find our helmade.com Vouchers here.

  12. Do I find helmade on Social?

    Yes, it would be cool to get your support on FacebookInstagram, Pinterest.and/or Tiwitter.
