Asterisk frame crack

Recommended Posts

Hey, last weekend I had a good bail, and upon inspecting my braces found the frame slightly cracked on one of them...it's on the upper outer frame right by the black plastic.

Is this going to be an issue?

Jay.

Pictures would help some, but the general rule with important safety gear like helmets and knee braces is to replace it if it has any visible damage that's not strictly cosmetic. Even when a helmet is dropped, it's recommended that you should replace it, but most people, including myself, consider that to be excessive. Will it hurt you to ride with it again? Probably not, but it's more than likely that your knee brace won't be as strong as it was before the crash. My suggestion is to replace it, but don't worry about it too much.

My Buddy cracked one of his frames and sent it to the dealer and it was replaced at no cost... Worth a try. they were over 2 years old btw.

Thanks for the replies...I will take both of your advice and not worry about it that much, as well as looking into returning them.

Thanks again.

Jay.
