W.L. Gore & Associates Inc. is recalling bicycle brake cables for road bikes, including about 9,700 sold in the United States and 200 sold in Canada because when they are installed on Campagnolo style brake levers, they can detach, causing the brakes to fail and posing a fall hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada announced.
No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves GORE Ride On Low Friction System brake cables for road bikes and GORE Ride On Professional System brake cables for road bikes. The cables are silver and are available with housings in black, white, blue or red. “GORE Ride-On” is printed on the housing for the Low Friction cable. “GORE Ride-On Professional” is printed on the housing for the Professional System cables. The cables are being recalled only if they were installed on road bikes that use a Campagnolo-style brake lever. The ends, or attachment heads, on the Campagnolo systems have the letters “C” “CC,” or “RO” imprinted on them.
