Specialized, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, has issued a voluntary recall of its range-topping S-Works 2D helmet in the U.S. and Canada. Approximately 3000 helmets are included in the recall, although helmets sold in other markets are not affected.

According to the official CPSC recall notice, the helmet does not currently meet North American safety standards. Specialized, however, claims the testing failures have been solely isolated to the chin strap buckle. Currently, no injuries have been reported.

2D owners are asked to immediately return their helmets to a Specialized dealer. Affected helmets will be replaced by a complimentary Decibel model (as in yes, you get to keep it) until new helmet shipments arrive this month. The new helmet will simply be dubbed 'S-Works' and will also include a protective hard carrying case.
