WASHINGTON – According to an online news report posted on BicycleRetailer.com, Segway has begun a recall of approximately 960 Ninebot Kids bike helmets due to retention system noncompliance. The noncompliance issue involves the positional stability and retention system requirement standards for bicycle helmets mandated by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission states that when bicycle helmets fail to protect the user in the event of an accident, the defect fails to protect the user from a head injury and/or brain injury.
The recall states parents should stop allowing their children to use these unsafe bicycle helmets and return them to Segway to receive a full refund. Segway stated that it is contacting all known customers to facilitate the helmet returns by using prepaid postage.
The recalled Segway Ninebot Kids bicycle helmets were sold on Segway.com, Amazon.com, Best Buy, and other retail stores nationwide from December 2020 through May 2021 at a price of $30 to $50.
The Segway Ninebot Kids bicycle helmets were orange and white in color and in size extra-small. “Ninebot” is printed on both sides of the bike helmets. The Model NB-410 is printed on a tag located on the inside of the helmet. A date and batch code is located on a separate label inside the helmet. Only helmets that have a batch code of “SN4500056024” and a date of “August 2020” are part of this recall.
