SRAM Road Hydraulic Brake Recall – STOP USE IMMEDIATELY
UPDATE: SRAM Road Hydraulic Brake Recall – STOP USE IMMEDIATELY
On November 4th SRAM identified and announced a technical issue with respect to a narrow production range of its RED 22 and S-700 Hydraulic Road Brakes. At that time, it was described as a performance and safety concern with no reported failures in the field.
It has recently come to our attention that during last weekend’s Cyclocross racing in the US, in sub freezing temperatures, several failures were reported. In these conditions the master cylinder seals failed to hold pressure resulting in abrupt loss of brake power, and an inability to stop the bike. These failures are related to product that is outside the originally stated date code range and unrelated to the original failure mode. No injuries have been reported to date.
As a result of this new finding, SRAM requests that anyone who has a bike equipped with SRAM Hydraulic Disc or Hydraulic Rim Brakes stop using the bike immediately. All products shipped to date, and currently in the market or in inventory will be recalled.
Further, we are asking our Bike Brand customers, OE factories, Distributors and Dealers to cease all sales and shipments of SRAM RED 22 and S-700 Hydraulic Road Brakes. A total of approximately 19,000 brake systems have been shipped to date into the global market.
Quarantine efforts currently underway with Factories, Bike Brands, and Distributors will be broadened to include all Dealers with inventory on bikes, or as Aftermarket product. Additional information related to timing and replacement of product will be forthcoming.
As originally announced we have reported this issue to the US CPSC and will be cooperating with the agency to announce a Safety Recall. We will also be contacting and working closely with appropriate like agencies in Europe and globally.
SRAM engineering and manufacturing is committed to the highest Quality standards. On behalf of all employees at SRAM we apologize for the business disruption to our customers business and to the individuals who have placed their trust in our products.
Heb zelf inmiddels contact opgenomen met mijn wielbouwer en wacht zijn reactie af.Alchemy schreef: Hello forum users,
This is Jeremy from Alchemy Bicycle Works. I was informed of this post yesterday. Yes, it is true; we have discovered a potential safety problem with some ORC-UL hubs. We have been trying to personally contact every owner of an ORC-UL that may be affected by this issue. To do this, we have attempted to get all customer contact information from the retailers who sold the hubs.
While I appreciate the kind words of tvad, I do believe that there is a potential safety issue involved. The issue will not cause catastrophic failure of the hub, but it may cause the cassette mechanism to bind. This can cause the chain to wrap up around the cassette, which could cause the rear wheel to stop spinning freely. So, we do advise that customers cease to ride an ORC-UL equipped rear wheel until the issue is resolved.
We are honestly trying to resolve this situation to the satisfaction of each customer.
If you are an owner of an ORC-UL hub and have not been contacted by us, please e-mail us @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our phone number is (505) 983-8393
Some Trek bicycles were sold equipped with disc brakes and a front quick release
lever that opens past 180° (fig. 1). If the quick release is improperly adjusted or
left open on a bicycle which also has a front disc brake, the quick release lever can
become caught in the front disc brake assembly (fig. 2). If this happens, the front
wheel could separate or come to a sudden stop and the rider could lose control of

Additional information on proper quick release adjustment, including videos on quick
release installation and removal, is available on Trek’s website: manuals and safety.
More videos demonstrating proper quick release adjustment are available on Trek’s

these materials and to consult your local Trek retailer with any questions regarding

Any Trek bicycle equipped with disc brakes and a front quick release lever that can open beyond 180º and contact the disc brake
assembly is affected. If you are unsure whether your bicycle has this combination, please take it to your local Trek retailer for a

En ondertussen duiken de eerste verhalen op van pistons die het begeven bij de Shimano R785. http://www.bikeradar.com/road/news/arti ... ure-45088/thestudent schreef:Tjonge dat is een behoorlijk harde klap voor het imago van Sram. Alle versies van je topproduct moeten terugroepen. Het gaat om ongeveer 19000 sets die verkocht zijn, maar op het moment liggen er zeker nog veel meer sets bij dealers en bedrijven. falende remmen kan zeker in de us resulteren in in behoorlijke schadeclaims. Dit gaat de markt voor hydro shifters natuurlijk ook geen goed doen.
