Marzocchi Recalls Mountain Bike Forks

High-End Italian manufacturer Marzocchi is recalling several models of mountain bike forks that could compress on a hard landing and lead to injury. There have been eight incidents (outside of the US) where this has occurred. As a result, Marzocchi has chosen to recall all of the forks.

As mentioned repeatedly on this blog, bicycle manufacturers (and bike shops) have a responsiblility to only sell bikes and bike parts that are safe. Bike parts that fail when used in a normal way and lead to an injury may be the basis for a product liability case.

If you have been injured while bicycling and wish to discuss your case, please contact Mike Keating at or 312-208-7702.
