Zipp recalls some 88 front hubs and some quick releases

SRAM has issued a recall on some ZIPP 88 front hubs and quick releases.

Quick releases

 

You may have a bicycle equipped with a ZIPP® quick release.

 

These quick releases are the subject of a safety recall. If your bike has a ZIPP quick release, PLEASE STOP RIDING YOUR BIKE until you confirm whether your quick release is part of the recall.

 

The quick releases can fail to engage in the closed position, posing a crash and injury hazard.

 

The product was sold in either titanium or steel. There is no UPC code or serial number, however, the affected quick releases can be identified the shape of the quick release lever and the absence of an identifying mark on the rear of the quick release lever located as shown below.

If you have an affected quick release, please contact SRAM or your local bicycle dealer for a free replacement. If you are unsure if your quick release skewer is part of the recall, please contact SRAM or your local bicycle dealer for verification.

 

Hubs

 

You may have a bicycle equipped with a ZIPP® 88v6, 88v7 or 88v8 aluminum front hub.

 

These front hubs are the subject of a safety recall. If your bike has a ZIPP 88v6, 88v7 or 88v8 aluminum front hub, PLEASE STOP RIDING YOUR BIKE until you confirm whether your hub is part of the recall.

 

Some of the aluminium front hub flanges can fail. If your front hub flange fails, you could crash.

 

There is no UPC code or serial number on the front hubs. However, the affected ZIPP 88v6, 88v7and 88v8 aluminum front hubs are readily identifiable by the size of the external flange rings and clinch nuts. The geometry of all 3 models are the same and the models differ only in anodize colours.
