IN COOPERATION WITH THE US CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION POST UNTIL 6/25/2014





TO:        Consumers who have purchased Rollerblade brand Tempest model inline skates
FROM:   Jeremy Stonier, Stephen Charrier
RE:         Recall: Tempest Skates
DATE:    February 21, 2014


Rollerblade USA takes extraordinary pride in each product that is sold under the Rollerblade brand. Rollerblade USA found that the mounting holes in the boot and frame in Tempest model skates can be misaligned causing the boot to separate from the frame, posing a fall hazard. Misalignment could make it difficult to loosen and correctly retighten mounting bolts when you adjust the boot position, and an improperly attached frame could become loose and detach from the boot.

Rollerblade USA, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), is voluntarily recalling all Tempest skates produced through 2013. These skates have silver frame mounting bolts and are listed below. Skates purchased after January 2014 with black frame mounting bolts are not part of this recall.
