Vega Helmet Corporation is recalling over 1,000 motorcycle half helmets, models XTA and XTA Touring in sizes L, XL, and XXL. These helmets were manufactured from February 2013 through December 2014.
The affected helmets may not adequately and efficiently protect the biker’s head in the event of an impact during a crash. As such, they fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 218, “Motorcycle Helmets.”
Vega will notify owners, and provide a full refund or a free replacement helmet. The recall is expected to begin December 16, 2016. However, owners of the helmet may contact Vega helmet customer service at 1-800-728-4898.
