Additional information:

Among the 32 recalls the European Union has announced in its third report of January 2019, the following recall notification was made:

Xinda branded Helmet for Mountaineers Recall [EU]Xinda branded Helmet for Mountaineers, sold with a model number of XD-Q9664 but no listed batch/lot codes or barcodes/EANs.

The type of hazard presented in these recalled Helmets is the suspected failure to provide sufficient vertical shock absorbing capacity.

Specifically, in the event of impact to the Helmet, for example as a result of falling rocks from above, the incident energy may be insufficiently absorbed by the Helmet’s outer protective shell and internal components to prevent brain damage manifest by Concussion, Loss of Consciousness and/or Coma.

In addition, the recalled Helmets may be insufficiently structurally stable for the activity indicated such that impacts of rocks may cause the Helmet to be perforated, possibly resulting in serious head injury and/or death.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Xinda branded Helmet for Mountaineer products do not comply with the requirements of Europe’s Personal Protective Equipment Directive (since 21/04/2018 repealed by the Personal Protective Equipment Regulation) and the relevant European Standard EN 12492. Consequently, a ban on the marketing of these Helmet products has been applied as well unspecified accompanying measures.

==> Please do not use any of the recalled Xinda branded Helmets for Mountaineers for any climbing activity, including ground practice where head injury could be a possibility. Instead, please return the Helmet to the store or online outlet from which you purchased them for a full refund.
