Safety Alert: 2015 1X and Overdrive 1X control systems
The Cabrinha brand has always placed quality and safety of our customers upfront in all our product development efforts.
Due to a recent discovery of a manufacturing defect in production, we have decided to make a product recall on all 2015 1X and Overdrive 1X control systems (KS5CSSDOD, KS51XCSFX) manufactured before August 1st.
We have discovered, in a very small number of cases that the internal diameter of the bungee guide does not meet our specification, due to an unauthorized modification by Cabrinha’s supplier. There is a small possibility that the Recoil™ spring can jam between the internal diameter of the bungee guide and the PU depower main line. In the unlikely case that the Recoil™ spring does jam itself into the bungee guide, the rider is still able to activate the main quick release and depower the kite into the single line flagging safe position.
In an attempt to reduce the inconvenience caused to our valued customers, our authorized dealers will install the part which will immediately remedy the issue. All 2015 1X and Overdrive 1X control systems must be brought back to the point of purchase to have the part installed. The part in topic is called the Recoil Slider (KS5RECSDR) and it takes under two minutes to install, using only a screwdriver.
This problem is limited to a small percentage of the 2015 1X and Overdrive 1X control systems manufactured before August 1st. We have taken action to remedy the issue in production. We have modified the manufacturing process and rectified all control systems as of August 1st. You can distinguish the modified and correct control systems by a GREEN DOT on the packaging hangtag of the control system. Anything shipped before August 1st without a green dot will need the Recoil slider installed.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your support in helping us maintain the highest level of safety.
