According to Health Canada, the hook-and-loop tabs holding the recalled Helmet’s liner can detach from the Helmet, posing a risk of the fit ring partially or fully separating. In turn, this can cause an operational protection failure in case of bike crash and an increase in potential injury.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Bike Helmets, please do not allow your child to wear them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
