Motorcycle Equipment Recall - Badass Trooper TR001.6 Helmets

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  18E052000
Component:  Equipment
Manufacturer:  Badass Helmet Company
Recall Date: 7/10/2018
Potential Number of Units Affected: 762
Defect Summary:
Badass Helmet Company (Badass) is recalling certain Trooper motorcycle helmets, model TR001.6, in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, and 2XL. These helmets may not adequately protect the wearer in the event of a head impact during a motorcycle crash and they may not stay secured to the rider's head. Additionally, the label inside the helmet may be incorrect in that it does not list the actual helmet manufacturer and does not list the model of the helmet. As such, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."
Consequence Summary:
A helmet that fails to meet the safety requirements can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Badass customer service at 1-866-334-3563.
