Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves certain CKX Titan and Mission Helmets for Recreational Sport Motor Vehicles.

  • The recalled Helmets can be identified by the brand name, “Titan” or “Mission” appearing on a sticker on the outside of the Helmets, or on an interior label of the Helmets. The Helmets were sold in sizes ranging from “XS” to “3XL”.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled CKX Titan and Mission Helmets for Recreational Sport Motor Vehicles can be found on the Web site above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to Health Canada, while adjusting the long chin curtain, wearers can unknowingly detach the neck strap if the rapid-release tab becomes stuck. The Helmets can then fail to fasten properly. If a crash, MVA or other impact incident occurs, the wearer can suffer a serious and possibly life-changing neck or head injury.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled CKX Titan or Mission Helmets, please do not use them. Instead, kindly contact the retailer from which you purchased the Helmet or Kimpex Inc. directly for a free repair.
