SPECIALIZED AUSTRALIA RETURN POLICY 

At Specialized we are about the rider. Accordingly, we understand that your gear needs to be right for your chosen discipline. The return policies on this page applies to Specialized products purchased from the Specialized Australia webstore only. 

Change-of-mind Policy

If you change your mind on your purchase from the Specialized Australia webstore you may return most products (see below) to us in the manner specified in this policy within 30 days of delivery to you, for a full refund. 

Please note the following conditions:  

Any product that is altered, damaged, washed or worn in any way, or is missing the original box, packaging material, contents, accessories, and/or manuals (i.e. any product not in “sellable” condition) cannot be accepted as a return. 
Proof of purchase and delivery from the Specialized Australia webstore is required for all returns and must accompany the product being returned.
Products purchased on the Specialized Australia webstore can only be returned direct to Specialized Australia at the address specified below. Webstore products cannot be returned to a retailer that stocks Specialized products.
Specialized Australia will not refund the shipping costs you paid for the initial purchase of the product.  Specialized Australia will only refund the cost of the returned product, if it is deemed acceptable for return (see below for products that we do not accept for return under our change of mind policy).
Specific warranty terms may apply to technical products.

We do not accept the return of products under our change-of-mind policy that are:

Water bottles; 
Sale or marked down items including products in our clearance category or sale campaigns.

If we receive a returned product more than 30 days after the product was delivered to you, Specialized Australia cannot accept the returned product and will not provide you a refund under the Change-of-mind Policy, although you may have other rights, which are set out in the Terms. If you return the product after the 30 days in which it was delivered, we will return the product to you at the same address that you specified in your initial order and we may charge you additional shipping costs.
