If you’ve got a Scott Vanish Evo helmet, you might want to stop using now, the Swiss company has just issued a voluntary recall for its top-end race helmet. Scott offering a full refund for the price paid for the helmet.
“In cooperation with national Recall Authorities, Scott is voluntarily recalling all CE and CPSC homologated Vanish Evo bicycle helmets of model year 2015,” says the statement, released earlier today.
