Cycling Sports Group recalls Cannondale CAADX Cyclocross bicycles due to fall hazard
Common name: Cannondale CAADX Cyclocross bicycles, model year 2013 through 2016
Product description: This recall involves model year 2013 through 2016 Cannondale CAADX Cyclocross bicycles equipped with disc brakes. The bicycles were sold in a variety of colors and configurations. Consumers should inspect their bicycle to determine if it is affected by this recall by confirming:
- The bicycle has a prominent CAADX marking on the top tube or other location.
- The bicycle has disc brakes.
- The inside of the fork leg has a large “ULTRAX” marking.
- The cable connected to the front disc brake is completely outside the fork blade.
Later models, not subject to recall, have the cable connected to the front disc brake routed internally, inside the structure of the fork blade.
Hazard identified: The bicycle fork can fracture, which can allow the wheel to detach from the bicycle during use, posing a fall hazard to riders. As of July 2, 2019, Cycling Sports Group Inc. has received 11 reports of incidents worldwide, with 7 reports of injuries, including concussions and a spinal injury and one fatality. Of these reported incidents, one occurred in Canada and five occurred in the United States.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycle and take it to the nearest authorized Cannondale dealer for a free repair. Cannondale dealers will replace, free of cost, the bicycle’s fork with a full carbon fiber replacement fork.
