Scott's Vanish Evo helmet range does not comply with impact requirements of CPSC or CE safety standards for helmets

Cycling manufacturer Scott is voluntarily recalling its range of Vanish Evo helmets because they fail to meet safety regulations.

The brand has published a set of serial numbers (see below) of the helmets which are being recalled in the US and Europe as they do not comply with the impact requirements of the CPSC and CE safety standards for helmets.

To find out if your helmet is affected you can check the serial number on the barcode on the inside rear of the helmet, or the model name and year on the sticker above that.

A Scott press release reads: “Riders wearing these helmets are not properly protected from falls, and could suffer severe head injuries. Consumers should immediately stop using the above listed helmet and bring the helmet to an official SCOTT dealer in order to have a full refund of the price paid.”

Scott points out that the Vanish Evo MY15 (AS) bicycle helmets with article number 238474 are not affected from this recall.

If your helmet is one of the recalled models, you can email Scott at recall@scott-sports.com or call its hotline on +41 26 460 19 00
