SRAM is recalling some 18,530 quick-release skewers that came on Zipp wheels sold between March 2015 and December 2015. There is no code on the affected quick releases, however they can be identified by their shape and the absence of a printed mark on the back center of the lever. In related news, SRAM is recalling Zipp 88v6, 88v7 and 88v8 hubs.
The quick releases, both titanium and steel, are being recalled because they can fail to engage when in the closed position. There have been no reports of crashes or injuries, Zipp says.
Zipp will replace affected quick releases with those that have either a date code or a “C” printed on the back of the lever. Quick releases that already have one of these markings are not affected.
Quick releases with a “C” like the above, or a date code in the same place, are not affected by the recall
If you have a set of affected quick releases, stop using them immediately and contact SRAM or a local bike shop for a free replacement.
