Vega Helmet Corporation is recalling 1,053 motorcycle half helmets, models XTA and XTA Touring in sizes L, XL, and XXL, manufactured from February 2013 through December 2014.
The affected helmets may not adequately protect the user's head in the event of an impact during a crash. As such, they fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."
What to do
Vega will notify owners, and provide a full refund or a free replacement helmet. The recall is expected to begin December 16, 2016.
