Academy Sports + Outdoors recalls Ozone 500 girls and boys Elevate bikes

Published July 16, 2021

WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — Academy Sports + Outdoors is recalling some Ozone 500 girls and boys Elevate 24-inch bikes because of a fall and injury hazard.

The hazard involves the rear shock spring, which can become stuck and create a pinch point between the spring and the seat, posing an injury risk, or causing the bicycles to stop unexpectedly and creating a fall hazard to the rider. The retailer has received one report of a person injuring their hand under the seat when the rear shock spring compressed.

The recall involves about 3,860 bikes that have "Ozone 500" printed on the frame. The girls bike is fuchsia with black script, and the boys bike is black with red script. The following style numbers are on the seat tube: 164538 (girls) and 164540 (boys). The bikes were sold at Academy Sports + Outdoors stores and online at from October 2020 through May 2021 for about $300.

Consumers immediately should stop using the bikes and bring them to any Academy Sports + Outdoors store for a free repair or full refund. Consumers also can contact any Academy Sports + Outdoors location for a replacement shock and repair instructions or to receive a prepaid shipping label to return the bike for a full refund.
