Salsa issues safety notice for Cutthroat forks

Published August 31, 2020

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (BRAIN) — Salsa Cycles has issued a safety notice for certain Carbon Deluxe V2 and Carbon V2 forks equipped on Cutthroat model bikes that were shipped to dealers beginning in September 2019.

Salsa said it has received reports of those forks cracking and breaking. The affected forks are identifiable by their serial number, visible when the fork is removed. Serial numbers with a middle portion containing either "CCAPG" or "CCCPG" are in the affected production range and subject to this safety notice.

Forks with other serial numbers are not affected nor included in this safety notice.

Here's what Salsa is recommending to consumers to identify whether their forks are affected:

  • Contact your Salsa Authorized Retailer so it can inspect the fork serial number.
  • If not able to bring your bike or fork into a Salsa Authorized Retailer for inspection, click here for instructions on how to identify the fork's serial number.
  • If you have an affected Cutthroat fork, stop riding the bike until further notice from Salsa or your Salsa Authorized Retailer.

Salsa is expected to have an update on the recall in the next two weeks. Additionally, it is working with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission and Health Canada to conduct a formal voluntary recall, which will be announced in the near future.
