Safety First Carbon Fiber Crash Replacement and Care Information
On the heels of Lance Armstrong's seven Tour de France victories & Chris Eatough's six 24 hour solo world championships, both aboard OCLV Carbon frames, carbon fiber has become the material of choice in the cycling industry. Although carbon is arguably the strongest material used in the bicycle industry, it's important to remember that it reacts differently as a result of major impacts than aluminum, steel or titanium. Therefore, embracing a “Safety First” philosophy, Trek is highlighting a Carbon Fiber Crash Replacement Program to make it easy and affordable to replace damaged parts at your local Trek Authorized Dealer. If you are riding a carbon frame or component, we encourage you to check out our Proper Carbon Care & Maintenance fact sheet to best ensure that you're equipment is safe, sound and ready to be enjoyed.
