Fox Issues Recall for 2013 Evolution Series
SCOTTS VALLEY, USA – Fox has initiated a voluntary recall of certain model year 2013 Evolution Series forks manufactured between March 1, 2012 and November 30, 2012. The recall includes the Evolution Series forks with 120mm – 160mm of travel with an open cartridge damper.
According to Fox about 42,000 units, all manufactured by Fox’s factory in Watsonville, were sold worldwide. Reports say that the fork damper cylinder/piston assembly in some of these units may separate and allow the fork to over extend under certain circumstances. It might be causing the front wheel to detach from the bicycle while in use.
