A small number of motorcycle helmets are being recalled as they fail to meet government impact standards and might not adequately protect motorcycle riders in the event of a crash.
The recall affects GLX 501C motorcycle helmets made by Galaxy Helmets in Irwindale, California, and affects the extra-large size only. According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), Galaxy Helmets will notify helmet owners and will bring the flawed GLX 501C helmets into safety compliance, free of charge. Galaxy has not, however, stated when the notification to its customers or repair process to its helmets will begin.
Consumers can contact Galaxy Helmets at 626-359-0900 or here for more information.
