September 7, 2016

WSB is recalling 300 WSB777 half helmets in all sizes. The affected helmets may be missing or have insufficient labeling, and may not be strong enough to protect a user in the event of a crash.

As such, these helmets fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."

Helmets that do not properly protect the rider's head can increase the risk of injury to the rider in the event of a crash. Missing labeling information reduces the owner's possibility of identifying the helmet in the event of a safety recall.

The recall is expected to begin in September 2016. WSB will notify affected owners and replace or reimburse them, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact WSB customer service at (855) 322-3733.
