Just bought new Evade 2 helmet and found this sticker on the back :shock:

Is there something to worry about??

Not happy with the purchase after reading this at all...

Likely a component of the outer plastic shell. Bisphenol is (was) present in a lot of food packaging and currently banned for stuff such as baby bottles. I doubt it is a real concern in a helmet

Don't eat your helmet and you'll be ok. :thumbup:

Yeah.

People make a big deal about BPA but there are many other phthalate chemicals. A manufactuer could substitute some other phthalate for BPA in their baby bottles and label them "BPA free". The best thing is to avoid heating or microwaving your food in plastic containers and also don't eat your helmet or store food in it.

Keep a steady stream of water or air hitting the helmet at all times while wearing it. That will keep the BPAs off of you.

Even if you melted the helmet doqn and injected it it would be hard for you to have a birth defect mate. You know those hiking bottles that say bpa free, well every other bottle has bpa in it. Worry more about the benzene belching car that is trying to hit you rather than the helmet.

Thought the same guys, I was just curious, if the BPA is not contained in the padding so it could touch my shaved head.

I´m trying to avoid polystyrene and polycarbonate in the food/water packagings, just never seen warning like this on the helmet box.

Prop65 mandates the warning as of last year. It's common in a lot of sunglasses that use polycarbonate frames too

Haha, there are people eating glass, some crazy ones have eaten a car, a bike etc. None of them died so perhaps it's time someone eat a helmet :-D

People in Cali stress about the BPA content of various things yet they don’t vaccinate their kids
