Weatherbeeta Pty. Ltd.—Dublin Onyx Helmet

Identifying features

Manufacturer's date 09/2009 and 12/2009

What are the defects?

The outer ABS shell has not been glued sufficiently to the inner EPS liner in production.

What are the hazards?

The outer shell can be pulled apart from the liner manually, therefore not offering the full protection to the rider if there was a fall.

What should consumers do?

Return the helmet to the retail store of purchase for assessment.

(The fault is occurring only on Chinese made helmets so the helmets have to be checked to see if they are Chinese or New Zealand made. If New Zealand made, the helmet can be kept by the consumer.)
