Ivolution Sports is recalling 800 IV2 JX-SKY 3/4 open face helmets manufactured October 16, 2015, to November 12, 2015.
The helmets have a detachable Skull Mohawk portion that was affixed with a metal screw instead of a plastic screw, preventing the Mohawk from easily detaching in the event of a crash. As such, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."
If the Mohawk feature of the helmet does not detach in the event of a crash, the rider could be at an increased risk of neck injury.
What to do
Ivolution will notify owners, and provide a full refund for all returned helmets. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact Ivolution customer service at 1-951-852-6327.
