Among the 55 recalls the NHTSA has announced this September comes news of the following:

J-Tech Corporation (“J-Tech”) has recalled an estimated 5,068 Icon Alliance Dark, Alliance GT Rubatone, and Alliance GT Horror Motorcycle Helmets in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL, and XXXL. The Helmets may have faulty stitching on the webbing possibly allowing the D-rings to separate from the chin strap.

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash, the helmet may not stay secured to the rider’s head, increasing the risk of injury.

What to do next? J-Tech will notify owners, and will provide replacement helmets, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in October 2017. Owners should contact Parts Unlimited at 1-800-369-1000 or by email at helmets@parts-unltd.com for information on returning the helmet for a replacement one.
