AFX North America, Inc. (AFX) is recalling certain model FX-76 motorcycle helmets sizes L, XL, and XXL manufactured March 30, 2013, to October 31, 2013.

The affected helmets failed the sample test for single impact. Thus, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) No. 218, "Motorcycle helmets."

In the event of a vehicle crash, the rider could face serious injury if there is significant impact.

4,074 units are affected.
