Class-action lawsuit filed against Shimano, Specialized and Trek over Hollowtech crank failures

October 12, 2023

A proposed class action lawsuit has been filed against Shimano, Specialized and Trek in the USA in the wake of the massive Hollowtech crankset recall.

The lawsuit alleges the crankset recall is inadequate, claiming that, by not recalling all Hollowtech cranksets, Shimano is working hard to limit the cost of fixing the issue at the expense of consumers.

The suit also accuses Trek and Specialized of knowingly and intentionally misrepresenting, omitting, concealing, and/or failing to disclose material facts regarding the quality, reliability, and safety of the cranksets. Bike Radar
