Trek Anthem C Elite Helmet Recall

Trek Bicycle Corporation has announced a voluntary recall of the Trek Anthem C Elite and Anthem C Elite WSD bicycle helmets. If you own a Trek Anthem C Elite or Trek Anthem C Elite WSD helmet, please stop using it immediately and bring it in for a full refund.

No injuries have occurred and the helmets have passed preproduction Trek testing, the European CRITT certification, and independent lab testing. However, stringent tests conducted by the Consumer's Union (CU) have shown that the Anthem helmets fail to meet the high standard found in other Trek helmets.

Frequently Asked Questions
  1. Q: What Trek helmets are affected by the recall?
    A: Only the Anthem C Elite and Anthem C Elite WSD helmets are affected. No other Trek helmets are affected. The recalled helmets have stickers reading “Trek Anthem C” on the inside.
  2. Q: What is the problem?
    A: Consumer's Union indicated that the Anthem C Elite helmet does not pass the CPSC impact test.
  3. Q: Did Trek test the helmet?
    A: Yes, Trek tested the helmet and it has also been tested by independent laboratories, and it was certified by CRITT standards. However, given the CU results, Trek has decided to take a cautious approach and recall the helmets.
  4. Q: Have there been any injuries?
    A: No, there have not been any injuries.
  5. Q: Are all Anthem helmets involved?
    A: No, just the Anthem C Elite and Anthem C Elite WSD helmets.
  6. Q: How can I tell the difference between the Anthem C Elite (recalled) and the regular Anthem helmet (not recalled)?
    A: The Anthem C Elite helmet has an nude carbon crossbar across the front of the helmet. The regular Anthem helmet does not (see photos below). There is also a “Trek Anthem C” sticker on the inside of the helmet.

    Consumers with questions should call Trek at (800) 373-4594 between 8am to 7pm CST Monday through Friday and 9am to 5pm Saturday.
