Profile-Design is recalling the Carbon X and Carbon Stryke aero-bar left- and right-forearm bracket pairs, also known as "ZB brackets." If you think you may have an affected part, stop using it immediately! Profile is concerned that the bracket on one of the aero bars can loosen, potentially causing a loss of control of the bicycle, which could result in injury or death.
This recall only involves the ZB brackets of the Carbon X aero bars sold from August 1, 1999 through present and the ZB brackets of the Carbon Stryke aero bars sold from May 6, 1999 through present.
Profile advises consumers should stop using the aero bars with the recalled ZB brackets immediately and obtain two replacement ZB brackets (left and right) from Profile-Design free of charge. Removal of the recalled ZB brackets and installation of the new ZB brackets only takes about 5 minutes using 4- and 5-mm Allen wrenches.
Consumers should call Profile-Design's recall hotline at (888) 800-5999 ext. 161, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific time to obtain the replacement ZB brackets.
