Voluntary Recall of Syncros FL1.0 Offset Seatposts

In cooperation with national recall authorities, SCOTT is voluntarily issuing a worldwide recall on Syncros FL1.0 Carbon Offset seatposts with a 27.2mm diameter. SCOTT is conducting this recall due to a finding that the seatpost can break, creating a possible fall hazard.

The recall affects the following model year 2016 SCOTT road bikes. These bikes have been sold in retail and online stores from about June 2015 to May 2016. 

Road bike models with the numbers shown above are potentially affected.
