Helmet City, Inc. Recalls 115 German Helmet for Straps That Stretch Excessively During a Load Situation Such as During a Crash

Helmet City, Inc. (HCI) is recalling certain model 115 German helmets, size XL, manufactured from April 1, 2014, through April 30, 2014.

During a load situation such as during a crash, the straps that secure the affected helmets may stretch excessively. As such, these helmets fail to comply with the retention requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."

If the helmet straps stretch significantly in the event of a crash, the helmet may not remain secured to the user's head increasing their risk of injury.

270 units are affected.
