According to the CPSC, the fork can break, posing a fall hazard. There have been 11 reports of the fork breaking. Five of those incidents happened in the United States.
One person died, and seven people have reportedly been seriously injured. Some victims suffered concussions and one suffered a spinal injury.
The recalled bicycles were sold at authorized Cannondale dealers nationwide from August 2012 through August 2017.
