SRAM has announced that certain connecting links (called PowerLock) on their 10-speed chains are being recalled.
SRAM has determined the PowerLock outer plate has the potential to fail.
Only 10-speed PowerLock connecting links are affected. Eight- and 9-speed PowerLocks are NOT affected. Also, 10-speed chains are NOT affected, just certain-model PowerLock links on these chains.
You can identify recalled PowerLock links by looking on the outer plate (see images).
Affected PowerLock links have the date codes M and N stamped on them.
If you own one, or think you may have one of these PowerLock links on your chain, please stop riding and contact us or stop by the shop. We're here to help!
