Cannondale has recalled its disk braked CAADX cyclocross bikes from model years 2013 to 2016.
The fork can fracture or break, which can allow the wheel to detach from the bicycle during use, posing a fall hazard with the risk of death or serious injury.
Consumers should immediately stop riding their bicycle and take it to the nearest Cannondale dealer for a free repair.
Cannondale dealers will replace the bicycle’s fork with a full carbon fibre replacement fork, free of charge.
To check if a bicycle is affected by this recall, inspect the bicycle to confirm it has all of the following features:
A prominent CAADX marking on the top tube or other tube Disc brakes A large “ULTRAX” marking on the inside of the fork leg A black plastic cable running to the front disc brake that is outside of the fork blade (not internally routed within the fork blade)
The models were sold nationally in various colours by authorised Cannondale dealers between 1 August 2012 and 1 August 2017.
