Motorcycle Equipment Recall - Vega Helmets

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  16E032000
Component:  Equipment
Manufacturer:  Soaring Helmet Corporation
Recall Date: 04/08/2016
Potential Number of Units Affected: 6,453
Defect Summary:
Soaring Helmet Corporation (Soaring) is recalling certain Vega CFS helmets, part number 7590, in all sizes, manufactured April 1, 2011, to April 29, 2011. The affected helmets may not adequately protect a user in the event of a head impact during a crash. As such, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."
Consequence Summary:
Helmets that do not adequately protect the wearer increase their risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Since the helmet purchasers are unknown, a notification will be placed on the Vega website. Retailers will exchange the helmets for a different Vega helmet or offer a refund, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 16, 2016. Owners may contact Soaring at 1-425-656-0683.
