Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the recalled Suspension Forks are model year 2013, 32 and 34 Evolution Series with 120mm to 160mm of travel. The “Evolution” name and logo are on a sticker on the front fork with the Fox brand name logo. The recalled Forks can be identified by the serial number, which is found on the underside of the crown after removing the front wheel. The Forks were sold as original equipment on some of the following 2013 model year mountain bikes: BMC, Cannondale, Commencal, Diamondback, GT, Kona, Lapierre, Norco, Orbea, Raleigh, Rocky Mountain, Santa Cruz, Scott, Specialized and Trek. A small quantity of Suspension Forks were sold to retailers or distributors as aftermarket accessories.

According to the CPSC, the Suspension Fork’s damper cylinder/piston can separate and cause the front wheel to detach, posing a fall hazard. Fox received one report of an incident resulting in shoulder injuries in Italy.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).
