Racers should note the ACCC recently issued a recall on two types of helmets - the Kylin XR 205 and KBC VR-1X.
Over 1,000 potentially dangerous motorcycle helmets have been recalled after testing by the ACCC found they were unsafe and did not meet the Australian/New Zealand Standard.
“Motorcycle helmets are critical protective devices that are designed to prevent or minimise head injury during an accident,” ACCC Deputy Chair Delia Rickard said.
“Motorcyclists must be able to rely on their helmets meeting the safety requirements.”
The ACCC recently tested six different brands and models of motorcycle helmet against the requirements of the Australian/New Zealand Standard. Two of the six helmets failed to meet minimum safety requirements and have been recalled.
