Recall – Shimano PRO Hi-Comp Bicycle Stems

Shimano Shimano Australia (phone 1300 731 077) have released a press release in respect to their PRO Hi-Comp Bicycle Stems.

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 first, PRO has decided to undertake a voluntary recall of all affected stems.

The models affected are all PRO stems branded with the “PRO Hi-Comp” logo as shown on the picture.

If you have a PRO stem branded “PRO Hi-Comp”, whatever the size or diameter, stop using it immediately. Please return it to the retailer where it was purchased from for a replacement stem to be provided free of charge.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us or your local PRO dealer.  We wish to thank you for your co-operation and apologize for any inconvenience.
