Mavic Announces Recall of Wheels with Spokes that Break

USA bicycle company Mavic has announced a recall of 12,000 front wheels that were manufactured in France. Mavic is recalling R-SYS and R-SYS front wheel rims that were sold on many different brands of road bikes.

After a rider broke his front teeth after the front Mavic wheel on his bike broke, Mavic determined that there was a risk for this happening on other wheels as well. An injury such as this where a rider is injured due to a defective product is an example of a potential product liability case. A product liability case may be brought when you are injured because of a product like a wheel breaking or a product that is unreasonably dangerous for its intended use. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident and wish to discuss whether you have a case, please contact Mike Keating at or 312-208-7702.
