KBC Recalls 456 Harley-Davidson Half Helmets
Certain Hybrid C/C Half Helmets failed to conform the Federal motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) #218, which specifies the impact attenuation and penetration requirements.
Not all helmet sizes are affected by the problem, and KBC America adds that they will recall only certain L, XL and XXL units, saying that users wearing these helmets may not be adequately protected in the event of a crash, thus increasing the chances of injury.
According to the NHTSA, "the remedy for this recall campaign is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Customers may contact KBC at 1-818-526-7771." Recall campaign number is 13E025000.
