Head USA Recalls Ski and Snowboard Helmets Due to Head Injury Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction, has announced that Head USA, of Boulder, Colo., will recall its snowboard helmets because of the head injury risk.

“The helmets do not comply with the impact requirements of safety standards for helmets, posing a risk of head injury,” according to the Commission.

The recall involves six models of HEAD ski and snowboard helmets:  Agent, Alia, Andor, Arise, Arosa and Avril. They were sold in sizes M/L and XL/XXL in black, blue, green white and yellow, with straps in a variety of colors. HEAD, the model name, size and “Production Code: Dec. 2014” are printed on stickers that can be found by lifting the lining above the right earpiece. The helmets were sold at specialty ski and snowboard shops and online from January 2015 through December 2015, for between $80 and $120.

“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled helmets and contact Head USA to receive a free replacement helmet,” according to the Commission.

    They are not trying to accept your replacement.
    I sent them an email regarding about recall, They never reply and I called to them, They said They can’t replace the helmet without sticker “Dec, 2014”
    Who keeps the sticker in the helmet?
    I removed all sticker before use cause it is sticks on hair.
    Their customer service has something wrong.
    Brett Johnson, He is the one who I spoke with.
    I feel they don’t want to replace your helmet.or they don’t know how to do it.
