Default Outlaw Helmet Recall

Got letter in the mail today about a recall on certain outlaw helmets.
NHTSA Recall Number- 12E-051. Helmets are:
Outlaw Carbon Matte AX 30020
Outlaw Carbon Tech AX 30010
Outlaw Carbon Tech AX 30030
I had bought an outlaw helmet recently, but not one of those. They are offering a full refund or another helmet. Helmets purchased between
Feb. 2012 and Oct. 2012. Says stop using Immediately.

Yep, just looked at my ultra low carbon fiber matte and it's TG-50030. Phew ... I was worried there for a second. Really didn't want to give it up.

Looked at three different sites and they all listed both the TG-50030 and AX-30030 for the same Outlaw Ulttra Low Profile helmet. Wouldn't be the first time our goverment officials got someting wrong!!! I just wish I would have bought one before the supply dried up.

I wouldn't give it back. It was approved when you bought it and it has the DOT markings to prove it!!! They just need to make an effort to buy it back so you, or your family, can't take them to court when you bounce you noggin off the pavement! JMHO

I have the Polo style #TG50115. Im guessing the recall is for the "carbon fiber" styles...

I laughed when I got my recall letter (right before I threw it in the trash). If you've ever seen/wore one you wouldn't be surprised that it doesn't pass DOT testing. That's WHY it's so light and low profile., which are the reasons I bought it. But it says DOT underneath the clearcoat and nobody's taking it away from me.
