Specialized S-Works 2D Helmet Recall

Specialized has voluntarily issued a safety recall on 2008 model-year S-Works 2D Specialized helmets (photo). These were sold between July and October, 2007. The helmets fail testing required under CPSC's safety standard for bicycle helmets. This can pose a head-injury hazard to riders in a fall. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported.

The S-Works 2D helmet has the model name "2D' printed on the side, towards the rear (photo). If you own one of the affected helmets, please bring it in to us so that we may perform the recall check. As an authorized Specialized retailer, we will inspect it and offer a free replacement or a full refund. Do not wear your helmet until this check has been done.

For additional information, contact Specialized toll-free at (877) 808-8154 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or visit the company's online recall page.
