SRAM 10 speed PowerLock: voluntary recall

SRAM 10 speed PowerLock: voluntary recall

SRAM has announced a voluntary recall of its 10 speed PowerLock following failures in testing

SRAM has announced a voluntary recall of its SRAM 10 speed chain PowerLock connector links after some of the outer plates failed during testing. As a result SRAM is retrieving and replacing all affected PowerLocks, which should be returned to SRAM bicycle dealers directly for replacement.



The issue relates to a limited number of outer plates (date codes “M” or “N”), which may develop a crack during installation and/or initial use, and fail. SRAM advises consumers to stop using this product immediately. Failure of the SRAM 10 speed chain PowerLock connector link, while in use, may result in loss of bicycle control and possible injury.



Please note that is not a chain recall, but a limited 10-speed PowerLock recall. And that only the 10 speed PowerLock connector links are affected.



– SRAM 8 speed chains and PowerLinks are NOT affected.

– SRAM 9 speed chains and PowerLinks are NOT affected.

– SRAM 10 speed chains are NOT affected.



Date code letters are stamped onto end of each PowerLock connector link outer plate. To verify date stamp, check both the PowerLock connector link outer plates.
