The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Helmets are subject to this recall:

  • Exxential (formerly Uvision) Equestrian Helmet with visor and a ventilation grille.
  • Lacquered Uvision Elegance Equestrian Helmet with visor, lockable ventilation lamellas and a flocked surface.
  • Supersonic Elegance Equestrian Helmet for kids without ventilation grille and flocked surface.

According to the ACCC, the recalled Helmets do not meet performance requirements regarding penetration and/or shock absorption required for Equestrian Helmets. There is a possibility the Helmets may not provide adequate protection to the wearer in the event of an equestrian accident and may increase the risk of injury to the wearer.
