My girlfriend purchased a brand new Shoei Hornet DS helmet from Revzilla on 11/2015 on sale for $300. Revzilla website says all helmets on sale or closeout come with the manufacturers warranty, which for this Shoei helmet is 7 years from the date of production and 5 years from the date of purchase. She recently had an issue with the visor so she emailed Shoei directly including the receipt from Revzilla stating it was purchased 3.5 years ago and pictures of the helmet. Shoei replied saying they wanting pictures inside the helmet for the production date. Upon doing so we found the helmet was manufactured 11/2007. Shoei said the helmet is old and expired, it's not covered under warranty and she should replace it. So with that said, Revzilla sold a helmet as new yet it was 8 years old and 1 year outside of any warranty, and by manufacturer standards, expired and should not be used. Upon contacting Revzilla we were told it was up to the customer to check the date of manufacture when they received the helmet, and it's not covered and the side with Shoei. They offered a 15% discount on a new helmet. They also stated that ANY helmet that is on sale or clearance " may not come with a warranty" and it should be expected. So with that said, the warning is, if you purchase a new helmet don't assume as we did that it's new stock and comes with a full warranty. Check the date of manufacture!! Lesson learned.
