Louis Garneau recall and Lazer test failure





Louis Garneau recalls their Course

Louis Garneau has recalled all Course helmets produced between September 2015 and September 2016. The recall notice says just that the helmets made during that period do not meet the CPSC standard. Health Canada reports that the shell can weaken over time causing the product to fail impact testing.

The helmets were made for Garneau by Strategic Sports, a respected OEM producer of more than 5 million helmets per year. Approximately 1,200 of them were sold in the US and Canada.

The Course is on Amazon at present at about $160.

Here is the official CPSC recall notice and the somewhat more helpful Health Canada recall notice.
