Lazer Recalls Blade, Magma, Elle and Jade Helmets

Laws & Regulations

ANTWERP, Belgium – Lazer Sport found out that in some cases, certain Blade, Magma, Elle and Jade bicycle helmets sold since January 2015 do not pass roll-off tests under the CE or CPSC standards. As a result, in rare circumstances, the strap anchorage may detach from the helmet during impact. Lazer has decided voluntarily to undertake a recall of the helmets affected in countries where the roll-off test is a mandatory requirement.

To date, Lazer is not aware of any reports of incidents and they consider the safety risk to be very low. The list of countries where this standard is applicable can be found on the website of Lazer Sport.
