Product Safety Alert – Holiday Gift Daily #48

Traditionally, the end of the year is a time of conviviality and togetherness. Giving presents is an undeniable part of this. But what should you pay attention to when it comes to the safety of these presents? There are still many unsafe products on offer. You do not want your loved-ones to be hurt.

Orbea Laufey Children's Bicycles

Today we draw your attention to different models of Orbea children's bicycles. The models from 2021 with one or more safety issues are Laufey 20 H30 – MX16 – MX 20 XC – MX 20 Team – MX 24 XC and MX 24 Team. They come in various colours and sizes. Each bicycle has a serial number printed on the frame's downtube. These bikes came to the attention of the authorities in Australia.

Due to a manufacturing defect, the handlebars may break. If the handlebars break while the bicycle is being ridden, the rider may lose control of the bicycle, increasing the risk of an accident or injury.

Consumers should return the bicycle to the place of purchase to have the handlebar replaced, free of charge. For more information, consumers can contact Quartra Pty Ltd t/as BikeBox on
