Bianchi Carbon Forks Recall

The following Notice has been issued by the manufacturer:

Bianchi’s internal test laboratory has recently detected a possible defect in the forks of a limited quantity of 2017 model year: Infinito CV, Infinito CV Dama Bianca, Intenso and Intenso Dama Bianca (non disc version) bikes and framesets. The failure could result in serious injury to the rider. The consumer must immediately stop to use their bike and return it to their Bianchi Dealer.

For this reason, we are recalling and replacing forks from model year 2017. Forks affected can be identified from the photos below. If you have a model that is not the same as appears in the below photo’s then you can continue to use the bicycle without any problem.

Wholesalers, distributors and dealers must stop selling all bicycles that are affected and contact consumers of sold bicycles to inform them and schedule to replace their forks with new forks we will provide to you. You will be contacted by our customer service department to inform you of the delivery details of replacement forks. It is important that you return all replaced forks to Bianchi for our evaluation and control.

Safety and reliability are equal to the performance we design into every Bianchi bicycle and we apologize for your inconvenience.  We are conducting continuous testing to ensure your safety and the intended performance of our products.
