3T Design, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has announced a voluntary recall of the following handlebar models:
Ventus LTD 17
Ventus LTD Gold
Ventus LTD Track
Ventus TEAM 17
If you have the recalled handlebars, stop using them immediately and contact us to
arrange for a free grip replacement.
These models were sold at independent bicycle retailers and internet retailers from January 2008 through November 2009 for between $1,000 and $1,200. The "Ventus" model name is printed on the top of the base bar.
The recalled bars have rubber hand grips, and these grips can loosen or slip off during use in humid or wet conditions. This can cause a loss of control
and result in a crash and possible injury. Two
minor incidents have been reported.
