Motorcycle Equipment Recall - EVOS Full Face Modular Helmet

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  16E054000
Component:  Equipment
Manufacturer:  1888653 Ontario Inc
Recall Date: 06/09/2016
Potential Number of Units Affected: 94
Defect Summary:
1888653 Ontario Inc. (Ontario) is recalling certain EVOS Full Face Modular Helmets, model number ST-818-6F-L, size Large, manufactured June 8, 2014, to July 10, 2014. The affected helmets may not adequately protect the wearer's head in the event of an impact. Additionally, these helmets may be missing or have incomplete information regarding the manufacturer's name as well be missing the words "Certified" and "FMVSS No. 218." 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 properly protect the wearer's head can increase the risk of injury to the wearer in the event of a crash. Missing labeling information reduces the user's possibility of identifying the helmet in the event of a safety recall.
Corrective Summary:
The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Ontario customer service at 1-416-848-0673.
