Motorcycle Equipment Recall - Ivolution Sports IV2 JX-SKY 3/4 Open Face Motorcycle Helmets

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  16E080000
Component:  Equipment
Manufacturer:  Ivolution Sports Inc.
Recall Date: 10/25/2016
Potential Number of Units Affected: 800
Defect Summary:
Ivolution Sports Inc. (Ivolution) is recalling certain IV2 JX-SKY 3/4 open face helmets manufactured October 16, 2015, to November 12, 2015. The affected helmets have a detachable Skull Mohawk portion that was affixed with a metal screw instead of a plastic screw, preventing the Mohawk from easily detaching in the event of 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:
If the Mohawk feature of the helmet does not detach in the event of a crash, the rider could be at an increased risk of neck injury.
Corrective Summary:
Ivolution will notify owners, and provide a full refund for all returned helmets. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Ivolution customer service at 1-951-852-6327.
