Black and red SRAM suspension forks

The RockShox Yari and RockShox Lyrik front suspension forks have been deemed unsafe.

A component on certain mountain bikes was recalled on Tuesday due to crash and injury hazards, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The SRAM RockShox Lyrik and RockShox Yari front suspension forks—the part that holds the front wheel—can "break and cause the rider to lose control," the advisory said. So far, no injuries have been reported.

The forks were made by the Chicago-based bicycle component manufacturer for complete 29-inch-wheel bikes by Kona, Santa Cruz, Trek, and Scott, and as aftermarket upgrades.

About 840 units were sold at stores nationwide on complete bikes from January 2019 through March 2019, and as single units from February 2019 through April 2019.

SRAM has advised riders to immediately stop riding on the forks and to contact SRAM or a local dealer for a free replacement, normally costing $700 to $1,000.
