The Silverback Skid 16" kids bike, model year 2020, has been recalled because it does not have a rear back-pedal brake.
In the absence of a rear back-pedal brake, children may not be able to brake sufficiently using the hand brakes, which may result in an accident and injury to the rider.
Consumers should immediately stop using the bike and return it to 99 Bikes for a refund, replacement or repair.
The bike, available in pink or green, was sold Australia-wide by 99 Bikes between 1 June 2020 and 31 July 2020.
The products do not comply with the requirements of the mandatory standard of the Trade Practices Act 1974 - Consumer Protection Notice No.6 of 2004 - Consumer Product Safety Standard: Pedal Bicycles: Safety Requirements'.
