Owners of ICON Alliance and ICON Alliance GT helmets should take note that the apparel designer has recalled a batch of the street bike helmets because of issues with its D-ring closure and retention system.
The specific pieces being recalled are the Alliance “Dark” helmets manufactured from January 2017 through July 2017, as well as the Alliance GT “Horror” and “Rubatone” helmets manufactured from March 2017 through July 2017.
This recall applies to the full range of sizes, extra small through triple extra large, of both helmet models, and centers around the fact that the retention system of some helmets may detach from the webbing due to faulty stitching.
To remedy the situation, ICON will be replacing the helmets of owners potentially affected helmets, free of charge.
To help owners determine whether or not their helmets are up for recall, ICON has a detailed description of the affected models on its website, as well as a form that you can send to begin the recall procedure. You can find it at this link here.
