Consumers should immediately stop using bicycles with the recalled rear shock absorbers and return them to the place of purchase for a free repair. Consumers unable to return their bicycles should contact Fox for instructions on receiving a free repair.
This voluntary recall involves all model year 2016 and some 2017 FLOAT X2 bicycle rear shock absorbers sold both individually and installed on YT, Giant, Pivot, Intense, Ibis, Scott, Trek, GT, Knolly, Norco, Rocky Mountain, Diamondback, Morpheus, Foes Racing, Orbea, and Canyon full-suspension mountain bikes and frames. The solid black or black and gold FLOAT X2 shocks have an air sleeve construction. FLOAT X2 is printed on the external reservoir connected to the blue compression and red rebound adjusters that have X2 and RVS laser etched on them. Recalled shocks do not have a “250 psi max” label directly under the air fill boss on the outer sleeve of the shock. A full listing of all recalled shocks and bike models can be found at http://ridefox.com/recall
We’ve just had a quick look at the updated Float X2. Here are most noticeable differences: – added grub screw stopping the outer air sleeve from twisting – added collar holding the volume spacers in place – new decal with 250psi max pressure warning – thicker outer air sleeve #exploadingnomore #ridefox #mtb
Incidents/: The firm has received seven reports of the shock absorber outer sleeve rupturing. No injuries have been reported. About 7000 shocks are affected.
