Cycle Gear is recalling certain Street & Steel brand Big Bore model motorcycle helmets, sizes Extra Small and Small. These helmets were manufactured in December of 2012. The recall deals with the failure of the helmets to comply with dwell time requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 2818 “Motorcycle Helmets”. If you own one of these helmets, you should be aware that you may not be adequately protected in the event of a crash, increasing your risk of head and neck injuries.
The voluntary recall by Cycle Gear includes the ability to exchange your defective helmet with a replacement helmet, or alternatively, a refund on your investment. If you own one of these helmets, please contact Cycle Gear by calling 1-800-292-5343 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
