Scout Kid’s Bike Helmets Recalled

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 72,000 Scout Kid’s Bike Helmets made by Xander Bicycle Corporation, DBA Retrospec, of Perris, California.

This recall involves Scout model Retrospec kid’s bike helmets in sizes XS and S in the following colors and designs: Blippi, Blush, Brash Blue, Chameleon, Cool Mint, Matte Forest Green, Matte Black, Matte Navy, Matte White, Matte Burnt Orange, Matte Green, Matte Royal Blue, and Matte Whisper Pink.

The helmets had a green hang tag label listing the name “Retrospec,” the Scout brand name, and the helmet size. The word Retrospec or the Retrospec “R” logo appears on the right side of the helmet.

The helmets were sold at T Scheels, Play it Again Sports and independent bicycle stores nationwide and online at and from February 2019 through March 2023 for between $18 and $23.

The recalled helmets do not comply with the coverage, positional stability, and labeling requirements of the CPSC federal safety regulation for bicycle helmets. The helmets can fail to protect in the event of a crash, posing a risk of head injury.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled helmets and contact Retrospec for a full refund. To receive a refund, consumers should destroy the helmet by cutting off the straps and mark the helmet with their initials and the date near the Retrospec logo on the right side of the helmet. Consumers should upload a photo of the helmet, showing the straps cut off, their initials, date, and Retrospec logo, to the recall registration page.
