The company has received two reports of the bars cracking or breaking. No injuries were reported. 

Consumers can contact Profile Design toll-free at 888-800-5999 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the Profile recall page or email AeriaUltimateRecall@profile-design.com.

The recall involves Profile Design Aeria Ultimate carbon aerobars sold individually and as an original equipment upgrade on some Dimond Brand and Quintana Roo bikes. The aerobars were sold in one size and are all matte black in color. "Profile Design" and "Ultimate" are embossed in gloss black on the top of the rear edge of the aerobars. The best way to identify recalled handlebars is to measure the uncut hand extensions from the leading edge of wing to tip of hand extension (where brake lever is placed). On recalled bars it is 13.6 cm (5.3 in) measured from leading edge of wing.

Consumers should immediately stop using bicycles with the recalled aerobars and contact Profile Design for instructions to receive a free replacement aerobar via their local retailer.

The bars sold from May 2017 through October 2018 for about $1,300 for the aerobar sold individually or included on bikes selling for $5,200 and $14,000. The bars were made in Taiwan.
