Sparta Accelerating Recall Specific ION Models
HEERENVEEN, the Netherlands – Last September Sparta issued a recall for a specific ladies frame used in its ION RX, RX+ en RXS+ models produced between July 2011 and 2014. Due to a recent accident caused by a breaking frame the Accell Group subsidiary has now decided to accelerate the replacement of the frames of the named models.
Sparta is recalling some 9,300 ION RX, RX+ en RXS+ e-bikes that have the specific ladies frame. In the named models the weld seam around the cable entry cut-out at the front of the frame can crack after a longer period of use and in extreme cases.
In exceptional situations this can cause the frame to slowly sag in and thus poses a potential risk to the safety of the rider.
