Product Care





    • You have the option to purchase the HEDON Helmet Cleaning Kit which comes with cleanser, odour eliminator, leather cleaner and microfibre cloth to keep your helmet looking as good as new


        • When cleaning, only use warm water and neutral soap. Never use window cleaning products. In order to keep all parts of the helmets in their best condition, use a wet cloth to clean the chinstrap and other relevant areas
        • Never apply paints, sticker, petrol or other chemical solvents to the helmet and visor
        • For the cleaning of the matte helmet surfaces - usually water and neutral soap will suffice for cleaning the surface but for more stubborn stains cleaning alcohol and evenly applied pressure from a micro fibre cloth is quite effective
        • For the cleaning of the glossy helmet surfaces - water and neutral soap with a micro fibre cloth will suffice. For a good polish you can use car wax as all Hedon helmets are painted with the same painting and techniques of automobiles
        • For visor maintenance - clean with soapy water. DO NOT use any solvents. Note that with each and every clean it will affect the fog and scratch resistant on the visor
        • For hardware maintenance - if you are tired of the oxidised look of some of the hardware on your helmet you can polish them with a mixture of lemon and salt and gently rub all over the surfaces of the hardware. For the Epicurist/Heroine screws, make sure to remove the screws from the helmet for polishing and to make sure they are secured correctly and firmly back on the helmet after
      • For leather maintenance - you can apply leather conditioner or shoe polish for richer colour and protection
      • Heroine helmet visors should be left open when not in use to protect the leather


    To clean your leather garment, sponge with a moist clean cloth dipped in warm soapy water. Detergent will take off stubborn stains but may also take away some of the dye, so should be avoided wherever possible.

    Wet leather should be dried naturally, as placed near a heater it will dry stiff and brittle.

    Leather dressing should be applied regularly and especially after the garment has been wet. Dressing softens the leather, helps keep dirt out of the pores and increases water resistance.

    Your garment will give you many years of service if you treat it with a little care.



    All REV’IT! products should be maintained regularly in order to ensure optimum performance and durability.  A label with wash and care instructions can be found inside all REV’IT! products as well as on the hangtag. Always follow these instructions.

    McCoy Jacket Care

    One of the things we love about waxed canvas is how it wears over time, developing a patina that gets better with age. A hard wearing jacket like the McCoy doesn’t require a lot of care but here are some time-tested do’s and don’ts to help your jacket go the extra mile.

    Do Not

    • Dry Clean
    • Machine Wash
    • Tumble Dry
    • Wash with hot water
    • Use abrasive or powder soap or detergent

    All of the above can damage or remove the waxed finish from your jacket.


    • Brush off dried dirt or mud
    • Remove wet substances with a wet sponge or cloth
    • Spot clean
    • Wash with clean pure water
    • Hand wash with mild soap
    • Hang Dry
    • Store COMPLETELY dry, hanging, away from heat and direct sunlight

    After a few years of hard wear the wax on your jacket may wear off. There are several quality fabric waxes you can use to refinish the shell of your jacket to make it more weather resistant.

    Wax May Transfer
    Your McCoy is waxy, you can feel the wax on the cloth, this wax can transfer to other items. Take care to not allow your jacket to touch furniture, clothing or items that may become damaged or stained.


    Demin Care

    Tobaccos are made to get better with wear

    Breaking In

    The denim is hefty, raw and unwashed. You may find them stiff or even restricting at first, especially if you are used to lightweight, stretch denim. Don’t panic. As you wear your jeans, they’ll stretch in the areas you need more room and will become more form fitting where you need less. The fabric will soften and fade over time. This is the beauty of raw fabric. Every fade, fold, and line, will be entirely self-inflicted. Your Tobaccos will be unlike any other pair.

    Soak or No Soak

    Some “denim-heads” pre-soak their jeans to get rid of any excess dye and shrinkage early, then wear the jeans at least 6 months before the next wash. Others prefer to wear jeans raw for 6 months, or as long as possible before washing to get high-contrast fades. In our experience both can work. Though cold water is always recommended, warm water can be used if you want more shrinkage.


    When it comes to washing raw denim, the consensus is, less is more. Wear your jeans often; wash when needed. It’s not unusual for raw jeans to go 4-6 months between washes. Depending on how often you ride or wear your Tobaccos you may need even less. When you wash denim, the water washes out some of the dye. The loose dye then transfers to lighter areas that have faded. The more you wash, the more dye you loose and transfer, resulting in a flat, monochromatic look, rather than the contrasting dark and lighter shades you get with natural wear and limited washes.

    Though raw jeans are machine washable, many denim-heads prefer to hand wash gently, inside out, in a tub of cool water, with “dark” detergent made to wash colors and prevent dye loss. Then hang dry.

    Shrinkage & Bleed

    In the world of raw denim, shrinkage is one of many factors that make theses jeans fit like none you have ever owned. Our denims are Sanfordized and 100% cotton, they will shrink 3-5% after the first wash, most of that in length.

    After washing, jeans will feel tighter at first, but cotton has some natural stretch and will loosen up after a couple wears. This has been accounted for in our design.

    Before the initial wash, dye may “bleed” or transfer onto other materials and fabrics, particularly when wet. Take care to not accidentally stain something you touch or sit on.

    Shrinkage can be avoided by dry cleaning.




    We recommend you use a shoe horn to put the boots on as although they will fit perfectly they will be stiff to put your foot in at first.

    For the boots with zip closure, this will make the entry into the boots especially easier and will protect your socks from snagging on the zippers. Make sure that the protective leather strip is between the zipper and your leg. The leather and zips will be stiff as they are new, as you break them in, putting the boots on will become easier.
