NUNSPEET, Netherlands (May 18) – This recall concerns SM-SH92 SPD-R cleats (Shimano part # Y43Y98030/#Y43Y98031), sold as after market products since 1999.
Shimano has identified that the rear protrusion tab may become damaged, and may prevent the shoe from being released from the pedal. This could lead to a cyclist being unable to release the shoe from the pedal, says a voluntary recall notice from Shimano.
“We would like to emphasise the fact that this recall is only for the optional SM-SH92 SPD-R cleats with a total float of 10 degrees. Standard SM-SH91 (6 degrees total float) and the after market product SM-SH90 fixed cleats are not affected by this recall,” says Shimano Europe.
Consumers are invited to visit their bike shops to get a replacement pair of cleats or a € 20 discount if they choose to upgrade to the latest SPD model. More info on http://www.shimano-europe.com/cycling (MH)
