LAZER SPORT NV (“LAZER”) has identified 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. It concerns all sizes of the CE helmets and sizes XS and S of the CPSC helmets affected.
To date, we are not aware of any reports of incidents and we consider the safety risk to be very low. However, as some products do not meet CE or 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. To find out whether the standard is applicable in your country, please visit the product pages of our website for further details, check the list of affected countries below or contact your local LAZER dealer.
The LAZER helmets affected are only the following models:
|Identification Code||CE sizes||CPSC sizes|
|BLADE||LZB-08||XS,S, M, L, XL||XS, S|
|BLADE (Asian Fit)||LZB-18||S, M, L|
|MAGMA||LZB-08||XS,S, M, L, XL||XS, S|
|MAGMA (Asian Fit)||LZB-18||S, M, L|
No other LAZER helmets are affected.
The models affected were sold in a variety of colours.
A white sticker with model name, identification code and size can be found inside the helmet as shown below:
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 are CE or CPSC compliant and can be identified by codes ending with “081” and “181”.
Consumers who are not certain whether their LAZER helmet is affected, should go to their dealer to have the helmets checked.
This recall action is applicable in the following countries:
- Czech Republic
- New Zealand
