Notice of Counterfeit SFI Labels on dangerously substandard driver suits and accessories sold by Speedsy Racewear via Facebook
SFI has found driver suits and accessories sold by Speedsy Racewear that bear
counterfeit SFI labels stating that the manufacturer certifies that their products meet the applicable SFI Specs. A suit was found to have a counterfeit level 20 label, but very thin construction not capable of providing level 20 protection. Also, single-layer gloves were found to have level 15 counterfeit labels. In each case, this represents dangerously substandard levels of protection.
Speedsy Racewear driver suits and accessories have not been submitted for SFI
testing and Speedsy Racewear is not enrolled in any SFI program.
It should be noted that for any spec program, a certification that products meet the minimum standards is made by the submitting manufacturer. Products are NOT certified, endorsed, or approved by SFI.
Necessary measures should be taken to ensure that items purchased from this source are not allowed to be used where compliance with the relevant SFI Specifications are required. Please contact SFI with any concerns or inquiries about questionable products.
Counterfeit products may appear with or without brand names. Genuine SFI
conformance labels contain hidden security features and slightly different fonts and materials, but the following illustrations should assist in visually identifying the affected parts:
