SRAM Sort-of Recalls Chain


SRAM has issued a not-recall for their 10-speed chains.

Say What?

According to, SRAM has issued a voluntary product recall for 10-speed Powerlock chains that are date coded “M” or “N,” but then the company stressed that the recall is not actually a recall, but you should still stop using it immediately.

We’re actually always happy when a company pulls something from service when it might fail, and we know that a full recall has some very specific language and legal requirements. But still, when you’re supposed to immediately stop riding something because it might cause injury or death, I think we can safely treat it as a recall.


To confirm, this is only 10-speed chains, not 9-spd too?  Thanks.
