Voluntary recall of road mechanical disc brakes
Shimano mechanical disc brake calipers BR-CX75, BR-R515, BR-R315
We have identified a potential performance issue with respect to our mechanical disc brake calipers for road bikes sold after February 2012. The affected models are: BR-CX75, BR-R515 and BR-R315. No injuries have been reported, but we are voluntarily recalling the affected brake calipers, and are replacing them with improved calipers in which the performance issue no longer exists.
Remedy/Contact
Consumers should immediately stop using bicycles with the recalled brake calipers and bring them to a Shimano authorized retailer in your area for a free inspection and installation of replacement calipers.
