Tegol, Inc. is recalling 11,487 Outlaw V-5 Series helmets, in all sizes.
The helmets may not adequately protect the wearer in the event of a head impact during a motorcycle crash. Additionally, they may not stay secured to head during a crash.
As such, the helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."
A helmet that fails to meet safety requirements can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
What to do
Tegol will notify owners and refund owners the price of the helmet, free of charge. The recall was expected to begin March 20, 2017.
Owners may contact Tegol customer service at 1-866-371-0281 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
