Additional information:

Among the 69 recalls the European Union has announced in its third report of December 2018, the following recall notification was made:

Lazer branded Blade, Elle, Jade and Magma Bicycle HelmetsLazer branded Blade, Elle, Jade and Magma Bicycle Helmets, sold with a model number of BLC2005661567; BLC2005661568; BLC2177882496; BLC2177882258; BLC2177882497; BLC2005666793; BLC2177882267 or BLC2005666928, an identification code of LZB-08 or LZB-18, a batch/lot/manufacturing year of 2016, 2017 or 2018 but with no listed barcode/EAN.

The type of hazard presented in these recalled Bicycle Helmets include restraining strap failure.

Specifically, in case of an accident or collision, the restraining strap may fail, break or detach, therefore releasing the Helmet from the head and increasing the risk of injury.

The Bicycle Helmet products do not comply with the requirements of the Personal Protective Equipment Directive (since 21/04/2018 repealed by the Personal Protective Equipment Regulation). Consequently, they have been ordered withdrawn from the European marketplace.
