Bell Sports Recalls Bell Slope Adult Bicycle Helmets Due to Risk of Head Injury

Topics: Biking
News Date: January 4, 2024
News Source: Consumer Product Safety Commission

Bell Sports has issued a recall for the Bell Slope Adult Bicycle Helmet. The strap anchor can become dislodged from the helmet when sufficient force is applied, and therefore violates the CPSC federal safety regulation for bicycle helmets. The helmets can fail to protect in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury. This recall only involves Bell Slope adult bicycle helmets. The helmets were sold in dark green and light blue. The recalled Bell Slope helmets can be identified by the inner helmet sticker which has the model’s name “Slope” and B1161X written on it. Only adult sized Bell Slope Helmets are affected by this recall.

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Bell Adult Slope helmets and contact Bell Sports for a refund. To receive a refund, consumers should destroy the helmet by cutting off the straps and upload photos of the helmet with the straps cut to [email protected] to prove destruction, then dispose of the recalled helmet.
