The Shimano-owned brand has determined that in some cases, certain Blade, Magma, Elle and Jade helmet models do not pass roll-off tests under the CPSC standards. Lazer said that in rare circumstances, the strap anchorage may detach from the helmet during impact.

It only concerns sizes XS and S of the CPSC helmets sold in North America.

Lazer said it is unaware of any accident reports and said it considers the safety risk to be very low.

The Lazer helmets affected in North America are only the following models:

Model, Identification Code, CPSC sizes
BLADE, LZB-08 XS, S
ELLE, LZB-08 S
MAGMA, LZB-08 S
JADE, LZB-08 S

No other Lazer helmets are affected.

The models affected were sold in a variety of colors.

A white sticker with model name, identification code and size can be found inside the helmet as shown at left. 

Consumers are being told to contact the dealer where they bought the helmet as soon as possible to arrange for a free replacement. The replacement helmets for the Blade and Magma have new model names: BLADE+ and MAGMA+ and the replacement helmets have a new strap anchorage designed to meet the CPSC standards. They can be also identified by the new ID codes "LZB-081" and "LZB-181."
