Cycle Gear is recalling 222 Street & Steel brand Big Bore model motorcycle helmets, sizes Extra Small and Small, manufactured in December 2012.
During testing, some of the affected helmets did not comply with the dwell time requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 218, "Motorcycle Helmets." In the event of a crash, the wearer may not be adequately protected, increasing the risk of injury.
Cycle Gear will notify owners and provide a replacement helmet or reimbursement. The recall is expected to begin in September 2013.
Owners may contact Cycle Gear by calling 1-800-292-5343 or emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
