Limited Warranty

Bell Sports, Inc. is voluntarily recalling the Bell Youth Soquel Helmet.

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada, Bell Sports, Inc., is voluntarily recalling the Bell Youth Soquel Helmet because the strap anchor can become dislodged from the helmet when sufficient force is applied and therefore does not comply with the CPSC federal safety standard for bicycle helmets. The helmets can fail to protect in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury.

We value our customers’ safety and are committed to full transparency, which is the reason we elected to voluntarily report this to the CPSC and recall the helmets.

Description: This recall only involves Bell Soquel Youth helmets made prior to September 2021. The helmets were sold in various colors (colors are black/red, blue lagoon with orange, blue lagoon with poppy, and matte black) in the U.S. and Canada. The recalled helmet can be identified by the inner helmet sticker which has the model’s name “Soquel” and “B0726Y” written on it. The helmets have a date code on the white inner label with August 2021 (“8/21”) or earlier.
