The Cycling Sports Group has issued a recall for Cannondale CAADX disc-brake cyclocross bikes produced during the 2013 to 2016 model years. The recalled bikes were sold by dealers from August 2012 to August 2017.
The recall is to replace the front fork on the CAADX bikes. The Cycling Sports Group has received reports of the fork breaking, causing severe injury and even one death.
Bikes subject to recall have the following markings:
(1) The bicycle has a prominent CAADX marking on the top tube or other location.
(2) The bicycle has disc brakes.
(3) The inside of the fork leg has a large “ULTRAX” marking.
(4) The cable running to the front disc brake is outside of the fork, as opposed to inside the fork.
The recall notice requires the following remedy: “Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bicycle and take it to the nearest authorized Cannondale dealer for a free repair. Cannondale dealers will replace, free of cost, the bicycle’s fork with a full carbon fiber replacement fork.”
