What’s the Problem?
May 17, 2017 - According to a recall notice issued Wednesday by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) , the potentially defective component is the stainless steel POWER BRACKET SEAT (PBS) and the lower front line that connects with the landing line on the Overdrive 1X Recoil with Fireball or Quickloop, Overdrive 1X Trimlite with Fireball or Quickloop, 1X Trimlite with Fireball or Quickloop, and Chaos 1X Control system models.
CPSC has received at least 6 reports of the PBS component breaking during use. Recalled model numbers include:
Note: Only models with “2017 1X” printed on a cloth tab attached to the bungee line restrainers are affected by the recall.
The products were manufactured by Cabrinha Kites (a subsidiary of Pryde Group Americas, of Doral, Florida) and sold at watersports stores across the U.S. between July 2016 and March 2017 for about $550.
Consumers who purchased recalled Cabrinha kiteboard control systems should stop using them immediately and return them to the place of purchase for a free replacement kit and instructional guide.
