Specialized recalls S-Works Venge Vias in the US

2016 Specialized S-Works Venge Vias and Venge Pro Vias road bikes have been recalled after a potential injury hazard has been revealed.

According to the United States’ Consumer Product Safety Commission, the rear wheel can come out of the dropout, causing fractures in the rear triangle, presenting an injury hazard to riders. Specialized received seven reports of fractures in the bicycles’ rear triangle, including one report of a rider suffering a minor injury.

Consumers are advised to stop using the potentially affected bikes (sold in black, white, red and black, white and black, and green and blue combos) and contact an Authorised Specialized retailer for free installation of a new rear derailleur hanger and safety inspection.
