SRAM Recalls Zipp 88 Hubs
Published On February 19, 2015 | News
SRAM recalls Zipp 88 hubs due to the flange ring on the front hub can fail causing the wheel to collapse. These hubs were sold between October 2008 to December 2010. Consumers should stop using the hubs and contact SRAM for replacement.
The aluminum hub shell is silver. The outside flange ring is gray aluminum in the standard option and blue, gold, gray, pink or red in the ZedTech options. The diameter of the two clinch nuts is approximately 1 inch. The first version of the 88 hub is the only one affected by the recall. The first version has the Z logo on the flange ring. The other versions – not affected by this recall – do not have the Z logo on the flange ring.
The hubs were sold in five bike brands and sold separately. The five manufacturers are Specialized, Giant, Felt, Orbea, and Cannondale. Models are listed here: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2015/SRAM-Recalls-Zipp-88-Bicycle-Wheel-Hubs/
