Owners of the fastest inflating Point Two jackets are being asked to send them back to the manufacturer for a safety check.
Point Two has voluntarily recalled all ProAir jackets with new, faster 0.10 trigger systems following a manufacturing fault.
A statement on the company’s website says: “Unfortunately, one batch of triggers has not been made to the required standard or strength. In some instances the trigger has started to crack.”
The very latest ProAir jackets contain the new trigger system — which inflates the jacket within 0.1 second — and some riders had opted to upgrade their older jacket, too.
Point Two says it cannot pinpoint which batch of triggers is faulty, so has chosen to recall all ProAir jackets fitted with the 0.10 trigger system “to ensure there are no faulty items left on the market”.
Owners are asked to send their entire jacket back — minus the CO2 canister. Point Two says it will cover all postage and packaging costs.
Point Two airbag jackets inflate when a rider falls, protecting the all important areas of the body, the collar of the neck, ribs and coccyx.
