Voluntary recall - CX75 Disc Brake Calipers

VOLUNTARY RECALL OF SHIMANO MECHANICAL DISC BRAKE CALIPERS FOR ROAD BIKES: BR-CX75, BR-R515 AND 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 (sold outside of N. America). 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.
