Icon Alliance GT Motorcycle Helmet Recall
Icon, a motorcycle apparel company owned by Lemans Corporation (Parts Unlimited), has recalled 5,068 of its Alliance GT helmets due to defective strap stitching.
The Icon Alliance lids may have faulty stitching, which may cause the D-rings to separate from the chin strap. This could result in the helmet not staying secured during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Icon will notify owners, and will provide replacement helmets, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in October 2017.

Owners should contact Parts Unlimited at 1-800-369-1000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on returning the helmet for a replacement one.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov.
