3T and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a recall of all all VENTUS LTD, Ventus LTD 17, VENTUS LTD Gold, VENTUS LTD Track, VENTUS TEAM and VENTUS TEAM 17 bicycle aerobars. These aerobars retail for $1,000 to $1,200. Wow, those tri-geeks know how to spend serious cash on their gear.
The grips on these Ventus Aerobars (highlighted in the image above) can slip off, resulting in the cyclist’s flight into terrain and possible injury. The fix involves replacement grips that are less likely to slip off. Aerobar owners can order the free replacement grips themselves, or take it back to the dealer for their action.
