NHTSA Campaign Number: 19E073

Manufacturer H&H Sports Protection

Components EQUIPMENT

Potential Number of Units Affected 4,218

 

Summary

H&H Sports Protection (H&H Sports) is recalling certain VCAN V531 motorcycle helmets in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, and XXL, sold exclusively through Amazon. The helmet retention system may fail, allowing the helmet to separate from the wearer's head 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."

 

Remedy

Amazon will notify the helmet purchasers and instruct them to return the helmets for a full refund. The recall is expected to begin in November 2019. Owners may contact H&H Sports at 1-626-444-0107.
