PhotoIvolution Sports is recalling 1,007 IV2 JX-SKY motorcycle helmets, sizes S, M, L, XL manufactured February 1, 2015, to July 15, 2016.

 

The helmets may have two detachable plastic accessory pieces -- a plastic mohawk and a face mask -- that were attached with small screws. These accessory pieces may alter the angle of impact and neck position in a motorcycle crash. As such, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."

 

If the accessories are attached with a rigid connection such as with screws, the rider has an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

 

What to do

 

Ivolution Sports will notify owners, and provide owners a full refund, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August 2016.

 

Owners may contact Ivolution Sports customer service at 951-852-6327. Ivolution Sports number for this recall is JXSKY-RECALL(201607).
