Louis Garneau Recalls Aerodynamic Bicycle Helmets Due to Injury Hazard

Louis Garneau has issued a recall for its Aerodynamic Bicycle Helmets due to an injury hazard. The helmet can fail to protect the wearer from impact injuries in cold temperatures.

The recall affects about 1,180 helmets sold at independent bicycle dealers nationwide and online at Louisgarneau.com from January 2014 through September 2014.

This recall involves Louis Garneau P-09 aerodynamic bicycle helmets with model number 1405362. The helmets are shaped like tear drops with a rounded front and a short, tapered tail. The outer shells of the helmets are made of polycarbonate and have a built-in visor system, dimples on the top like those on a golf ball, a small rectangular vent in the front and a triangular vent in the rear.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled helmets and return them to Louis Garneau USA for a refund or replacement with a similar helmet.
