Shimano Carbon Clincher Wheel Recall

Shimano, in cooperation with the USCPS, has initiated a voluntary recall and replacement program for its Dura-Ace carbon clincher wheels (model WH-7850) sold from April 2008 to August 2008. The rim surface and spoke-hole plugs can puncture the inner tube, resulting in a flat tire and posing a fall hazard. No accidents or injuries have been reported.

If you own the recalled Shimano Dura-Ace carbon clincher wheels, immediately stop using them and return them to the place of purchase (us) so we can replace the spoke-hole plugs with rim tape.

IDENTIFYING THE RECALLED WHEELS

  • Sold between April 2008 and August 2008.
  • Say "carbon 1380" on the rim in red and white (see Figure 1).
  • Model number WH-7850 written in white on the rim (Figure 2).
  • There are blue Shimano spoke-hole plugs inside the rims (Figure 3).
