Trek has announced an immediate recall of Revision 1 of the Promax Solve DSK‑925 or Promax F1 DSK‑927 hydraulic disc brakes installed as original equipment (OE) on a limited number of its models from the years 2021, 2022 and 2023. The American brand is recalling these products in coordination with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, saying the hoses on affected brakes may eject or pull out from the brake lever. 

Trek says this is caused by a loose fit between the brake hose and the barb, resulting in improper clamping of the hose, which could result in the rider could lose control and crash. Trek says it has received 195 reports of brake hoses detaching from the brake lever in the United States but adds there have been no reported crashes or injuries resulting from the defect.

As part of this recall, Trek is asking consumers to take the following steps:
If you own an affected bicycle, Trek will provide, through an authorized Trek retailer, a free inspection and, if appropriate, a repair of the brake hose where it connects to the brake lever, at no cost to you. In addition, when you bring your bicycle to a Trek retailer for inspection, Trek will also give a $10 in-store credit that can be used toward any Trek or Bontrager merchandise. 

Trek says it's a limited number of models and doesn't affect models like the newly launched Trek Marlin hardtail MTB. With the following models being on the recall list: Trek Bicycles Model Year 2021 FX 2, FX 3 and Verve+ 3. Trek Bicycles Model Year 2022 FX2, FX 3, Verve 3, Verve+ 3, FX Sport 4, FX Sport 4, FX Sport 5, FX Sport 6, Dual Sport 2 and Dual Sport 3. Trek Bicycles Model Year 2023 models FX 2, FX 3, FX Sport 4, FX Sport 4, FX Sport 5, FX Sport 6, Dual Sport + 2 and FX + 2.
