Merida has announced a complete voluntary recall of its 2017 Scultura CF2 carbon forks.

Continued use of the fork is strongly advised against, with the manufacturer suggesting that breakages under stress could cause serious injury.

The affected forks have been used in the following Merida Scultura CF2 and aluminium MY 2017 models:

SCULTURA CF2 RIM version MY17
MY17 SCULTURA 4000
MY17 SCULTURA 4000-Juliet
MY17 SCULTURA 5000
MY17 SCULTURA 6000
MY17 SCULTURA Special Edition

SCULTURA CF2 DISC version MY17
MY17 SCULTURA Disc 200
MY17 SCULTURA Disc 400
MY17 SCULTURA Disc 400-Juliet
MY17 SCULTURA Disc 500
MY17 SCULTURA Disc 4000
MY17 SCULTURA Disc 4000-Juliet
MY17 SCULTURA Disc 5000
MY17 SCULTURA Disc 6000

The corresponding 2018 models are not affected.

On the aforementioned models, the carbon steerer of the forks is not able to withstand the stresses and strains it will be exposed to. Under intensive use, the steerer underneath the clamp of the stem and spacers can develop fractures which can lead to a complete collapse of the fork.
