Vi hos Cabrinha Danmark vil blot meddele at I kan se bort fra dette. Alle barer i de skandinaviske og baltiske lande er serviceret, og er derfor IKKE omfattet af dette recall.

Cabrinha recalls the 2015 1X and Overdrive 1X control systems.
Kahului, HI September 9, 2014

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 all2015 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 byCabrinha’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 unlikelycase 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 1Xand 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 ittakes 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 inproduction. 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 aGREEN DOT on the packaging hangtag of the control system. Anything shipped before August 1stwithout 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.
