Giro recalled its Merit model in February
Giro/Bell Sports/Vista Outdoor has recalled its Merit model. The recall was never announced by CPSC, but you can read about it on the Giro website
. The defect was straps that pull loose from the helmet. Affected helmets were manufactured prior to January 2023. There is no info on how many helmets were recalled. This is the least-publicized helmet recall in recent years. We do not know why CPSC failed to send out notices and failed to post the recall on its website.
June 2023 note: CPSC announced the recall
on June 8, 2023.
