Uvex Funride Helmets May Not Prevent Head Injury: Product Recall

uvexIn response to insufficient shock absorption and resistance to penetration, the United State Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada in association with Uvex Sports, they have determined these helmets unsafe and announced a voluntary recall of the Uvex Funride Ski helmets.

Consumers are strongly urged to discontinue wearing the recalled products immediately and are asked to return it to the original store it was purchased from for a full refund.

Manufactured in China, nearly 800 of the defective Uvex Funride Ski helmets were sold between January 2009 and April 2011 for the average retail price of $99. The color options were sold in solid black, white and silver. There was also a collection of matte black or white with printed flower decals. The brand name, “Uvex” is printed toward the back of these helmets. Unsafe helemts bear the code, “S-58B” or “S-58C” in the interior label.

More information about the helmet recall is available on Uvex’s webpage (www.uvex-sports.de/en/recall). Consumers may also contact a representative at Swix Sport USA at (800) 343-8335.
