The helmets fail testing required under CPSC's safety standard for bicycle helmets. This can pose a head injury hazard to riders in a fall. This recall involves the Specialized helmets, model 2D. Model "2D" is printed on the sides of the helmet in the rear.
The helmets were sold for men and women in matte black, white, silver, blue, pink, and team colors. They were sold by Specialized through its authorized retailers and online stores between July 2007 and October 2007 for about $200.
Consumers should stop using the recalled helmet immediately and return it to an Authorized Specialized Retailer to receive a free replacement or a full refund.
