Report Receipt Date: DEC 22, 2014
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14E086000
Component(s): EQUIPMENT

Manufacturer: Shark


Shark is recalling certain medium and extra large RAW motorcycle helmets manufactured August 22, 2013, to June 29, 2014. During testing, some of the affected helmets failed to conform to the impact attenuation requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 218, "Motorcycle Helmets."


By wearing a helmet that fails to meet impact requirements, the user may not be adequately protected in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury.


Shark will notify owners and will direct owners to contact service provider Shark North America who will replace the helmet, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on January 20, 2015. Owners may contact Shark North America at 1-773-850-3113.


Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-800-327-4236 (TTY:1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
