More than 10,000 snowboard bindings recalled after reports of failure

Posted on March 16, 2015 2:14 pm under Product Liability

Approximately 10,400 Flow 2014 Flite-series snowboard bindings are being recalled after reports of a pin disengaging, causing the snowboard binding to open unexpectedly and pose injury risks, a press statement by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released on March 3.

Snowboard and snowboard accessories maker Flow Sports Inc. issued the voluntary nationwide safety recall after learning about 30 incidents associated with the issue. The affected series was sold under brand names Flite, Haylo, Micron Youth, Flite LTD and Flite MTN. Recalled products were sold between July 2014 and February 2015 at EVO, SNSboards, The House, Zumiez, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Sports Chalet, Wired Sport, and other sports shops nationwide and online.

Customers can contact the company for a free repair, a free replacement binding, or a full refund.
