Important Recall Notice: Simpson Voyager 2 SA2015 Helmet

SAFETY & RECALL NOTICE
TO DISTRIBUTORS, DEALERS & CONSUMERS
APRIL 6, 2017

Simpson Performance Products Snell SA 2015 Certified Voyager 2
Helmet Recall

TO: All Simpson Distributors, Dealers and Consumers
FROM: Simpson Performance Products, New Braunfels, Texas USA
Date: April 6, 2017

Simpson Performance Products has recently discovered a potential safety
issue with its Snell SA 2015 Voyager 2 helmet. If the helmet’s chin strap
experiences large tensile forces during an accident, it could detach from one
or both sides of the helmet. This presents an enhanced risk of injury to the
head should the helmet not be retained in a crash.
Simpson Performance Products is voluntarily recalling the Snell SA
2015 Voyager 2 helmet due to the chin strap’s potential inability to
withstand load forces on a consistent basis. The problem was
discovered during testing with the Snell Foundation. We stress that
no problems have been reported from the field in nine months of use but
in the interest of racing safety, we are proactively recalling these products
and providing our customers with a safe resolution. This recall applies to
the Snell SA 2015 Voyager 2 Model only, sizes Extra Small – Large with
manufacturing dates in 2016 only (the only sizes sold and available to
date). It does NOT apply to any other Simpson helmet models with
Voyager in the name, i.e. NOT Snell SA 2010 Voyager or Snell SA 2010
Sidewinder Voyager, etc. It is only the Snell SA 2015 Voyager 2 helmet
