NUNSPEET, the Netherlands – Pro has identified a potential safety issue involving the Pro Hi-Comp road racing bicycle stems produced between November 2003 and June 2006. Due to fatigue these stems may crack and eventually break. If this happens during cycling, the cyclist may lose control of the bicycle, which could lead to serious injuries.

 

In a statement Pro owner Shimano Europe states that “as all PRO products should meet the highest industry standards, as a precautionary measure, and in the interest of putting the safety of its consumers first, Pro has decided to undertake a voluntary recall of all affected stems.”

The models affected are all Pro stems branded with the “Pro Hi-Comp” logo as shown on the picture.

Everybody who owns a Pro stem branded “Pro Hi-Comp”, whatever the size or diameter, is urged to stop using it immediately and return it to the retailers for a refund of the purchase price.
