Description: This recall involves Profile Design Aeria Ultimate carbon aerobars sold individually and as an original equipment upgrade on consumer configurable Dimond Brand Bikes and Quintana Roo model bicycles. The aerobars were sold in one size and are all matte black in color. “Profile Design” and “Ultimate” are embossed in gloss black on the top of the rear edge of the aerobars.

On recalled bars it is 13.6 cm (5.3 in) measured from leading edge of wing.
Hazard: The bicycle aerobars can crack and break, causing the rider to lose control and crash.
