Ivolution Sports Recalls IV2 JX-SKY 3/4 Open Face Motorcycle Helmets Because a Metal Fastening Screw On a Detachable Skull Mohawk May Prevent the Mohawk From Easily Detaching in the Event Of a Crash

Ivolution Sports Inc. (Ivolution) is recalling certain IV2 JX-SKY 3/4 open face helmets manufactured October 16, 2015, to November 12, 2015.

The affected helmets have a detachable Skull Mohawk portion that was affixed with a metal screw instead of a plastic screw, preventing the Mohawk from easily detaching in the event of a crash.

As such, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."

If the Mohawk feature of the helmet does not detach in the event of a crash, the rider could be at an increased risk of neck injury.

800 units are affected.
