The recalled bicycle brake models include SB Red Hydraulic Road Disc, SB Red Hydraulic Road Rim, SB 700 Hydraulic Road Disc and SB 700 Hydraulic Road Rim, used as either front or rear brakes. The SB RED brake lever is labeled “RED” on the body of the lever assembly.
The US Consumer Safety Commission recommends that consumers “should immediately stop using bicycles equipped with the recalled brake systems. SRAM is offering a free replacement and a $200 voucher to impacted customers.
