Cycle Force recalling Ventura Adult Bike Helmets

WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — Cycle Force is recalling its Ventura Adult Bike Helmets because they don't comply with the Consumer Product Safety Commission's federal standards and can fail to protect during a crash.

No incidents nor injuries have been reported.

About 1,750 helmets do not comply with the CPSC's positional stability requirement. The recall involves the size medium with model numbers 731434, 731436, 733192, or 733194. The model numbers are located on a manufacturer sticker inside the helmets.

The recalled helmets were sold in white carbon, neon yellow, and white/pink and white/orange color combinations. The helmets have a removable black visor, black straps, and a black buckle. Ventura is written on the front of the visor and on the left and right sides of the helmet. A factory production sticker is also located inside the helmet with a product code beginning with S-166 followed by the month/year of production (from October 2017 through January 2023).

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled helmets and contact Cycle Force for a refund. To receive a refund, consumers should destroy the helmet by cutting off the straps, complete this form, email photos of the helmet with the straps cut off to, and then dispose of the helmet. Cycle Force is contacting all purchasers directly.

The helmets were sold at The Home Depot, JCPenney, Kohls, Play It Again Sports, and independent sports and bicycle stores nationwide and online at,, and from October 2017 through January 2023 for about $40.
