Blade and Magma Helmets Recall

VOLUNTARY RECALL NOTICE

LAZER helmets

LAZER SPORT NV (“LAZER”) has identified that in some cases certain BLADE, MAGMA, ELLE and JADE bicycle helmets, which have been sold since January 2015, do not pass the roll-off test under the CPSC standards. As a result, in rare circumstances the strap anchorage may detach from the helmet during impact. It only concerns CPSC helmets with ID code LZB-08 in sizes XS and S sold in North America.

To date, LAZER is not aware of any reports of incidents and considers the safety risk to be very low. However, as some products do not meet CPSC standards, LAZER has decided voluntarily to undertake a recall of the helmets affected in countries where the roll-off test is a mandatory requirement.

Only the following models and sizes of LAZER helmets are affected. No other LAZER helmets are affected.

Model name CPSC Helmets
Identification Code CPSC sizes
BLADE LZB-08 XS, S
ELLE LZB-08 S
MAGMA LZB-08 S
JADE LZB-08 S
A white sticker with model name, identification code and size can be found inside the helmet, as shown here:

If you are in possession of an affected helmet please contact the retailer you bought it from as soon as possible to arrange a replacement of the helmet, free of charge. The replacement helmets, marketed under the names BLADE+ and MAGMA+, have a new strap anchorage designed to meet the required standards. They can also be identified by the new ID codes “LZB-081” and “LZB-181”.

We apologize for any inconvenience. For additional questions, please call 1.800.423.2420 in the U.S. (8a.m.–5p.m. Mon.–Fri. PT) or 1.877.377.5211 in Canada (8a.m.–5p.m. ET).
