Look is voluntarily recalling some Aerostems following a few cases of corrosion in the clamp’s fibre that could lead to its cracking.
The company said the clamps were marketing on the Aerolight and Light 695 frames from the 2014 range and the 795 from the 2015 range. Clamps with no identification number or with the number 380706 are affected. Clamps with any other number are not part of the recall.
Owners of bikes with these clamps are advised to stop riding it and to bring it to a local Look dealer for a free replacement.
The company has also reported the issue to the US Consumer Products Safety Commission and to Health Canada, with announcements from those agencies to follow.
