Voluntary recall by SHIMANO
OF SHIMANO MECHANICAL DISC BRAKE CALIPERS FOR ROAD RACING BIKES:

BR-CX75, BR-R515 AND BR-R315

We have identified a potential safety issue with respect to our mechanical disc brake calipers for road racing bikes which are sold after February 2012 (BR-CX75, BR-R515 and BR-R315). So far, no injuries are reported.

As a responsible company where the safety of our customers has top priority, we are voluntarily recalling the brake calipers concerned. We are replacing these with improved brake calipers in which the safety issue no longer exists.



Background


Readjustment of worn brake pads in the case of the brake calipers concerned should be performed by the bicycle dealer. However, it cannot be excluded that consumers and dealers will adjust the brake pads incorrectly. This can lead to that the braking force is being more difficult to control and brake performance can be influenced.

If you have a bike with a brake caliper affected by the recall, or are unsure, please visit a Shimano dealer to have the brake caliper checked and replaced if necessary.
