Box Components recalling some BMX forks

Published April 6, 2016

ANAHEIM, Calif. (BRAIN) — Box Components is recalling some BMX forks that were sold in the aftermarket last year and included on some 2016 model year bikes. The forks' steerer tubes can become loose in the fork.

The company has not received any reports of injuries as a result of the defect.

The fork models involved are:

  • XE 20-inch 10mm Dropout Fork (model number BX-FK13A2010)
  • XE 24-inch 10mm Dropout Fork (model number BX-FK13A2410)
  • XL 20-inch 10mm Dropout Fork (model number BX-FK15A2010)
  • XL 24-inch 10mm Dropout Fork (model number BX-FK15A2410)
  • XS 20-inch 10mm Dropout Fork (model number BX-FK14A2010)

The affected forks have serial numbers of either 140508, 140606 or 140702. The serial number is laser etched on the steerer tube.

The "XE," "XS" and "XL" logos are located on the crown of the fork. Box sold the forks from January 2015 to July 2015.

Forks were also sold on complete model year 2016 bikes from Haro (Team CF Mini, Team CF Junior, Team CF Expert), Redline (Flight Mini, Flight Junior, Flight Expert, Flight Expert XL) and DK (Elite Junior, Elite Expert).

The issue has been corrected through a design change to the steerer tube that eliminates the possibility of the steerer tube turning. All qualifying fork claims will be replaced with current production forks that do not have this flaw.

Consumers are being told to visit their nearest bike shop for inspection. They can visit for more information.
