Scott recalls Vanish Evo for impact standard failure

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced that Scott has recalled their Vanish Evo model for failure to meet the CPSC impact requirements.

The Vanish Evo is Scott's entry into the superlight helmet competition. It has a Conehead dual-density liner, accounting for some of the lighter weight. Recall notices have been filed in Europe as well as the US, so the model sold in Europe did not even meet the CE 1078 standard. The recall includes the Vanish Evo and Vanish Evo MTB with visor. They sold for about $200 in the US.

CPSC recall notice

Scott has info on their page. It is at the bottom of their home page under Safety and Recalls, down in the lowest right hand corner where everybody will see it.
