Be Safe – Mavic R-SYS Front Bicycle Wheel Recalled Due to Fault

mavic-r-sys-tourdownunder

Mavic R-SYS front bicycle wheels which were sold by Grays Online have been recalled by Product Safety Recalls Australia in-cooperation with Grays Online due to an issue with the carbon tubular spokes of the R-SYS front wheel breaking during use in certain circumstances (undefined but I guess riding the bike?) Surprise surprise Mavic it seems has had problems with these very same wheels in the past. I wonder if Grays Online thought they had picked a nice deal on some premium rims? Maybe next time they should do their research first.

Mavic R-SYS Front Bicycle Wheel Defect

Product Safety Recalls Australia are advising that there is a risk that the carbon tubular spokes of the R-SYS front wheel may break during use in certain circumstances causing the rider to lose control and possibly fall, potentially sustaining injury I love they way the understate these matters at times! Do they really have a clue about what can happen if your front wheel collapses? Not something I would wish on my worst enemy.

If you have one of the affected Mavic R-SYS front bicycle wheels you are advised to stop using the wheel immediately and if you purchased your wheel via Grays Online to contact them to organise a replacement front wheel rim.

Apparently the wheels were sold by Grays Online on May 21, 2012 only.
