Approximately 260 units of Head USA’s ski and snowboard helmets were recalled on February 4 after it was discovered that they did not meet safety standards during production, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website. Apparently, the helmets did not follow the impact requirements while being manufactured. This sub-par manufacturing could potentially injure the user or increase the chance for injuries, although there have been none reported so far.
The six models of the HEAD ski and snowboard helmets are Alia, Andor, Arosa, Avril, Arise, and Agent. The helmet sizes are M/L and XL/XXL, and the production code is Dec. 2014. These helmet specifications are located on the right earpiece.
Head USA reminded consumers to stop using the faulty helmet and instead reach out to them for a free replacement as soon as possible.
Many injuries and fatalities occur during recreational activities as a result of improper safety gear. Many athletes place their trust in these products to protect them in the event of an accident, and the betrayal of that trust is completely unjust.
