Additional information:

Among the 47 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

H&H Sports Protection (“H&H Sports”) has recalled an estimated 4,314 VCAN V531 Motorcycle Helmets sold in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, and XXL. The straps for the recalled Helmets may not be properly sewn and, as a result, the protective elements may not stay secured to the rider’s head in the event of a crash. Additionally, the labels have an incorrect manufacturer’s name. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 218, “Motorcycle Helmets.”

According to the NHTSA, a Helmet that does not remain secured to the rider’s head will not adequately protect the wearer in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The affected Helmets were sold through Amazon.com. H&H Sports will notify the owners, and instruct them to return the helmets to Amazon. A complete refund of the purchase price and shipping costs will be provided free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August 2018. Owners may contact Amazon customer service at 1-888-280-4331 or H&H Sports customer service at 1-626-444-0107 or by e-mail at V531Recall@HHsportsprotection.com for additional information.
