I recently picked this helmet up at an estate sale. The condition is nothing short of amazing. Basically flawless, unused. The polyurethane foam on the inside of still spongey and white. My question is what is the best means to prevent the foam from degrading? Should I keep it completely out of light, sealed to prevent UV damage. Should it just be kept from heat? Any thoughts? Thanks ABN

That is a great setup...

storage..unless you have museum access with climate controlled humidity levels etc...keep it out of direct light, good air circulation, and low humidity...
