Over 30,000 Vega Helmets Recalled

Vega Helmet Corp. is recalling more than 30,000 XTS motorcycle helmets after doing a test and found that some did not meet crash protection safety standards. NHTSA said that people using the helmets may not be protected in a crash. The recall will start in January. NHTSA has told Vega that 4 extra large helmets didn’t meet the safety standards when tested this year. The company started to investigate and found that the helmets fell out of compliance partially due to changes in models shell design. Vega has no stats so far as to how many helmets will be recalled, so they did the right thing and recalled all of them.
