Shimano PRO VIBE Bicycle Handlebars Recall

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Shimano has voluntarily issued a safety recall on their PRO VIBE bicycle handlebars sold from June 2011 to April 2012.

The recalled handlebars can break, posing a fall hazard. Fortunately, no incidents or injuries have been reported.

The recalled handlebars (photo above, top left), intended for high-end road-racing bikes, are compact, drop models. These aftermarket bars have two labels with the words "PRO" and "VIBE" printed on them.

Handlebars with the following serial numbers are being recalled: JE028ZG, JE101ZG, JE106ZG, JF081ZG, JF102ZG, JG048ZG, JH006ZG and JH077ZG. The serial numbers are printed on a label inside the tube of the handlebar (photo above, bottom).

If you still have the package the handlebars came in, the model number is found on the barcode sticker on the back of the package (photo above, top right). The recalled model numbers are PRHA0099, PRHA0102, PRHA0103, PRHA0105 and PRHA0106. 

If you have the recalled handlebars you should immediately stop using them and bring them in to us. We will replace recalled bars free of charge.

For more information, you may also contact Shimano at 800-353-4719 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.
