Using the VENTETE x miniFUMPA pump, the helmet takes approximately 20 seconds to inflate and 15 seconds to deflate.
A micro-USB cable is included with each aH-1 to recharge the pump.
A full charge of the VENTETE x miniFumpa pump can inflate the aH-1 helmet 5-6 times.
The aH-1 can be inflated with the included VENTETE x miniFumpa pump or a Presta-valve compatible hand pump, track pump, or other mechanical pump. C02 cartridges are not to be used under any circumstance and will void warranty.
If you’re between sizes, we recommend sizing up. You’ll be able to tighten the helmet for a perfect fit using the retention strap system.
See our size guide here.
There’s free shipping and returns in the UK, so you should return your first helmet and order a new one in the correct size.
For customers outside the UK, if you would like to get a new size following a return, we will cover the delivery cost for the replacement helmet. Simply reach out to email@example.com for a one-time code.
You can clean the helmet using warm soapy water with a damp cloth or soft-bristle brush. Rinse soap off and leave inflated to fully dry.
Do not contaminate the helmet with Deet-based insect repellents, sunscreens, chlorine, or salt water. If you accidentally do so, clean the helmet as soon as possible.
When storing the helmet for a prolonged period, deflate it fully and store within the included case, away from exposure to sun or heat. Never store the helmet wet.
Shake the helmet dry before deflating and storing. Ideally, leave it inflated to dry before returning to its case.
If any parts of the helmet (ribs, fabric body, straps, or buckles) are broken or show any sign of damage, do not use the helmet.
Also replace the helmet if it sustains impact in an accident, even if no damage is visible, and (due to natural degradation of materials and general wear) please replace your helmet after 3 years of use.
The aH-1 has been certified by the British Standards Institute to be fully compliant with UKCA and European CE EN 1078:2012+A1:2012. It is also certified by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for CPSC 1203.
The aH-1 is intended for pedal cycling, skateboarding, rollerblading, and scooting. It is not intended for motorsport, moped, or other similar uses. The helmet may also not be suitable for extreme riding, such as high-speed events or jumping.
The aH-1 is designed for use by ages 15+.
Children under the age of 15 should not use the helmet for any purpose.
Standard collapsible helmets reduce, at most, by 55%. Micro-collapsibility is a term we define as thinner than 4cm when stored. The VENTETE aH-1 micro-collapses by 90% to less than 3cm thick.
