FGL Sports of Canada is voluntarily recalling thousands of Capix Evo and Capix Jr Evo Bike and Skateboard Helmets solld in the first half of this year as a precautionary measure due to a potential safety concern.
The company has learned that a manufacturing defect may cause cracks to appear near the rivets securing the helmet’s chinstrap, posing a potential safety hazard to users. The helmets were manufactured in China.
FGL Sports is the exclusive retailer of Capix Evo and Capix Jr Evo Bike and Skateboard Helmets. Approximately 8,684 units of the affected helmets were sold at Sport Chek, Sports Experts, Intersport and S3 stores across Canada from January through June, 2014.
