Nearly 1,000 RockShox forks sold in the U.S. and Canada may break and ’cause the rider to lose control.’
The Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced a recall of SRAM RockShox Lyrik and Yari suspension forks. The forks were equipped on complete 29er bikes — including Kona, Santa Cruz, Trek, and Scott — and available as aftermarket upgrades.
According to SRAM, the lower leg assembly on about 840 forks in the U.S. and another 80 in Canada can break. This can cause riders to lose control, potentially leading to injury.
SRAM warned riders to immediately stop riding bikes with the RockShox Lyrik or Yari forks and contact SRAM or a local dealer to receive a free replacement.

The faulty Lyrik and Yari forks came as original equipment on bikes sold from January through March 2019. Bikes specced with the forks include the Kona Process, Santa Cruz Megatower, Trek Powerfly, and Scott Ransom.
As aftermarket accessories, the forks retailed for $700-1,000 and sold from February to April 2019.
Forks impacted by the recall have serial numbers 02T95514009 through 08T96214665. Consumers can also check the casting code imprinted on the inside webbing of the arch. Recalled forks have the casting code “18” and “O,” or “19” and “A.”
