What's the difference between a bump helmet and a ballistic helmet?

Bump helmets only provide protection from impacts. They're not rated for ballistic protection. Bump helmets are lighter because they aren't made with bulletproof materials such as Kevlar. Ballistic helmets provide protection from impacts while also providing protection from some bullets. Practically all helmets rated for ballistics are rated IIIA.

How do I care for a ballistic helmet?

Ballistic helmets should be stored in a container or area where they're not subject to accidental impacts. It's best to store helmets in moderate temperatures. Extreme temperatures can be detrimental to helmet fibers over time. Cleaning your helmet is simple. Use a damp soapy rag, wipe clean, and allow to air dry. Removable helmet pads should be hand washed and allowed to air dry. Cleaning time is also an excellent time to inspect your helmet for damage.

Do helmets have an expiration date? What is the warranty period on a ballistic helmet?

The majority of high-quality ballistic helmets have a 5-year warranty and expiration date. That doesn't mean that a well-maintained helmet won't perform well past that date. As the warranty period ends at 5 years, that's when manufacturers typically recommend replacing helmets. However, most people don't replace their helmet unless it is actually cracked, worn, or extremely old.
