Many Charles Owen helmet models feature a fully removable headband, which is machine washable (30ºC) and replaceable.
The helmet liner is designed to fit each helmet size increase and is attached using premium hook and loop closure to ensure that no pressure points exist to cause the rider discomfort.
We recommend riders use these replacement headbands to refresh their riding hat and ensure a snug fit.
Important: Replacing your headband does not extend the protection offered by your helmet. It’s essential that you replace your riding helmet after five years.
Made in the UK by Charles Owen.
You may come across the words ‘drape’ and ‘cup’ headbands which refer to the type of liner used in different helmet models.
*Please note only GR8 and jR8 models that currently have removable headbands are compatible with our replacement headband.
Allows for very specific sizing. It can be purchased in multiple sizes to allow room for a rider to grow or to put their hair up inside the helmet.
It fits inside the helmet and can be replaced when worn down to make the helmet feel as snug as when it was new.

The drape liner does not change the size of the helmet. It is designed to provide a sleek, traditional look while still offering the benefits of being able to wash and replace your helmet liner.
The headband is fitted to the upper edge of the helmet’s interior so that it doesn’t add any extra bulk.
