ICON Alliance helmet recall

ICON wants to inform you that there will be a voluntary recall of certain Alliance and Alliance GT helmets produced during part of 2017. The specific helmets being recalled are the Alliance Dark helmets manufactured from January 2017 through July 2017, and the Alliance GT Horror and Rubatone helmets manufactured from March 2017 through July 2017 ("potentially affected helmets"). This recall applies to sizes Extra Small (XS), Small (S), Medium (M), Large (L), Extra Large (XL), Double Extra Large (2XL), and Triple Extra Large (3XL), of both helmet models. The potentially affected helmets may contain a defect related to motor vehicle safety. In particular, faulty stitching on the nylon webbing attached to the D-rings may possibly not remain secure within the webbing. This may allow the D-rings to separate from the chin strap. In the event of a crash, the wearer may not be adequately protected, increasing the risk of personal injury or death. Although only a small percentage of the potentially affected helmets contain the defect at issue, the entire production lot is being recalled in an abundance of caution and replacement helmets will be provided free of charge to owners of the potentially affected helmets. Owners of the potentially affected helmets will be provided a free replacement helmet of the same model & style.
