Product description:  Fox Evolution 2013 Mountain Bike Suspension Forks

The recalled suspension forks are model year 2013, model number 32 and 34 Fox Evolution Series, with 120 mm to 160 mm of travel.  The Evolution name and logo are on a sticker on the front fork, with the FOX brand name logo.

A small quantity of suspension forks were sold to retailers or distributors as aftermarket accessories.

Hazard identified

The suspension fork’s damper cylinder/piston can separate and cause the front wheel to detach, which could cause a serious injury.
