Premium MTB suspension brand Ohlins have issued a recall on their RXF 36 29/27.5 and RXF 34 forks sold aftermarket and O.E.M. on 2017 Stumpjumper, Enduro, Fuse aswell as the 2018 Stumpjumper, Enduro and Levo.
The recall affects air sprung forks and not coil forks.
Ohlins have have advised owners to immediately stop using their fork and contact their retailer to arrange it’s return.
Ohlins have stated that:
“Specifically, the right-side top cap on some forks may not be adequately torqued which in some cases may lead to the top cap working itself free through riding. When this happens, the air cartridge may abruptly spring out of the stanchion tube causing a risk of injury to the rider. Therefore, we’ve decided to ask riders to stop riding, and our dealers to stop selling, affected forks and bicycles.”
According to Ohlins 4 incidents have been reported out of 17,000 forks produced.
