Atomic Skis USA Recalls Ski Bindings Due to Release, Fall Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Atomic Skis GmbH, of Austri, have announced a voluntary recall of the Alpine Ski Bindings.

Affecting about 125,000 units (an additional 1.0 million were sold outside the United States), the heel housing of the bindings can crack, causing the binding to release unexpectedly. This can cause the skier to lose control or fall and suffer injuries. The firm has received four reports of injuries, including a concussion and injuries to the shoulder and knee from falls.

The recall affects the heel components of the following Atomic alpine ski bindings: Race 310, Race 412, RaceRace 310, RaceRace 412, Xentrix 310, Xentrix 311, Xentrix 412, C310, C311, C412, CR 310, CR 412, R 310, R 412, SX 310, SX 412, Device 311, Device 412, Centro 310, Centro 412, and Dynamic ADX 312, RD10, X412, Centro 412.

The recall includes only those bindings manufactured from 1998 through 2002. The year of manufacture can be located on the underside of the heel lever. The affected unites were sold at authorized Atomic USA ski dealers nationwide from 1998 through 2005 for between $150 and $350.

Consumers are advised to stop using these ski bindings immediately and return them to any authorized Atomic Ski dealer for a free inspection and replacement of the heel component, if needed.

For additional information, contact Atomic Ski USA toll-free at (888) 535-7555 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. MT Monday through Friday; e-mail consumerserviceUS@atomicsnow.com; or visit www.atomicsnow.com.
