About 2,700 pairs of VO2 S skates (in addition, about 740 pairs were sold in Canada) from K2 Sports are being recalled.
According to a press release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the skate axle can become loose or a portion of the axle can sheer off during use resulting in a wheel separating from the skate’s frame, posing a fall hazard. K2 Sports has received four reports of loose axle hardware. No injuries have been reported.
The product was sold at specialty stores nationwide and online at www.k2sports.com from January 2019 through May 2019 for between $280 and $300.
Consumers are being advised to immediately stop using the recalled skates and contact K2 Sports or the store where purchased to return the skates for a free repair. K2 Sports is contacting all known purchasers directly.
