We’re big fans of the Gore Sealed Low Friction cable sets for low-maintenance cyclocross racers, but Gore announced that select Ride-On brake cables, when installed with the campagnolo cable end, are being recalled by the company. See the full press release below.
An issue has been identified at our supplier which leads us to request that you immediately stop the use of any of Gore’s Low Friction Brake or Professional Brake Cables which were installed in a brake lever using the Campagnolo® style termination. When the affected cables are installed in a brake lever using the Campagnolo style termination, it is possible that the termination end of the cable may detach from the cable. We have received only one report of such detachment and no injuries have been reported. However, because the safety and quality of our products is paramount, we are halting sales and initiating a voluntary recall of all affected cables Please note that if the cables were installed using the Shimano®/SRAM® style termination ends, they are not affected by this recall.
This recall only affects cables sold under the GORE® RIDE ON® brand and designed to work with Campagnolo group-sets. The recall does not include cable sets manufactured by Campagnolo or any other manufacturer. This recall does not include cables sets sold under the SRAM® RED® brand or SRAM® ALL PRO Brake products.
Please review the following pictures and questions to determine if your brake cables are affected. If you determine your cables are affected, Gore will provide free replacement cables to you.
