These helmets may have two detachable plastic accessory pieces, a plastic mohawk and a face mask, that were attached with small screws. These accessory pieces may alter the angle of impact and neck position in a motorcycle crash. As such, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."
If the accessories are attached with a rigid connection such as with screws, the rider has an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
1,007 units are affected.
