H&H Sports Protection (H&H) is recalling certain TORC T-55 V2 low profile half helmets, sizes XS, S, M, L, XL and XXL. These helmets may not adequately protect the wearer in the event of a head impact during a motorcycle crash. Additionally, the helmets may not stay secured to head during a motorcycle crash. As such, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, “Motorcycle Helmets.”
A helmet that fails to meet the safety requirements can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
H&H will notify owners and will either replace or provide a refund for the helmet, free of charge. Owner’s may contact H&H Sports Protection at 1-626-444-0107.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
