Trek has announced a voluntary recall on all of its model year 2022 Speed Concept SLR time-trial bicycles, as well as 2021 and 2022 Emonda SLR road bikes.
This is due to concerns the base bar used on the Speed Concept and the Bontrager Aeolus RSL VR-C integrated cockpits fitted to the Emonda SLR could fracture if overloaded.
The integrated cockpit was also available as an ‘aftermarket’ product from model years 2020 to 2022.
For now, the recall is limited to Australia, but Trek has confirmed this issue affects customers globally and will be communicating recall measures in other territories imminently. The recall was initially issued on 7 June 2022.
The brand recommends you stop riding the bike and contact an authorised Trek retailer to make a workshop appointment to replace the base bar or integrated cockpit.
Trek cautions that, should the base bar or cockpit break while riding, a “rider could be involved in a serious accident”.
