Shimano Recalls PRO Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hi-CompÃ¢â‚¬Â Bicycle Stems
PRESS RELEASE: PRO has identified a potential safety issue involving the PRO Hi-Comp road racing bicycle stems produced between November 2003 and June 2006. Due to fatigue these stems may crack and eventually break. If this happens during cycling, the cyclist may lose control of the bicycle, which could lead to serious injuries.
As all PRO products should meet the highest industry standards, as a precautionary measure, and in the interest of putting the safety of its consumers fi rst, PRO has decided to undertake a voluntary recall of all affected stems.
The models affected are all PRO stems branded with the Ã¢â‚¬Å“PRO Hi-CompÃ¢â‚¬Â logo as shown on the picture.
If you have a PRO stem branded Ã¢â‚¬Å“PRO Hi-CompÃ¢â‚¬Â, whatever the size or diameter, stop using it immediately. Please return it to the retailer it was purchased from for a full refund of the purchase price.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us or your local PRO dealer.Ã‚Â Retailers can download recall coupons and posters here.
