The problem

The helmet cover, made of a polycarbonate micro-shell, has failed the manufacturer’s head impact tests. Remaining units left from the previous production were then retested and failed the cold condition testing.

The helmet may not prevent injuries in the case of a severe accident. No such incident has been reported at this time.


This helmet, certified according to CPSC standards in February 2014, was manufactured in early 2014 and its production was tested internally by both Louis Garneau and its contract manufacturer and externally by independent laboratories and passed all CE requirements.

The recalled helmet is sold under the model name P-09. It is offered in three colors: 7E5 (White-Blue), 6Y8 (Black-Red) and 6Y9 (White-Silver), the style number is 1405632. Recalled helmets have a manufacturer’s date sticker of Jan 2014. About 11 of these helmets have been sold in NZ.

Helmets having a production date of April 2014 meet quality standards and are not subject to this recall.
