WARRANTY TERMS

This document sets out the terms of various warranties we offer for certain products (each of those warranties being a "Limited Warranty"). The limitations and exclusions applicable to each Limited Warranty, as set out in this document, apply only to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. If any provision applicable to a Limited Warranty is found to be unenforceable, only that provision shall be severed and all others applicable to that Limited Warranty shall apply. Each Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights under applicable law. In addition to these Limited Warranties, our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

TERMS OF LIMITED WARRANTY

This Limited Warranty applies to Model Year 2013 and newer Turbos and to all Model Year 2014 and newer model bicycles and covers only Specialized branded products. Any other original component or part will be covered by the stated warranty of the original manufacturer.

This Limited Warranty is conditioned upon the bicycle being operated under normal conditions and use, and properly maintained.

Specialized recommends that you register your bicycle with Specialized before a warranty claim may be processed. Even if registration is not required to take advantage of the Specialized Limited Warranty, Specialized encourages you to register your bicycle to allow Specialized to provide you better service in the future.

To exercise the rights under this Limited Warranty, the bicycle or frameset must be presented to an Authorized Specialized Retailer on the same continent on which the bicycle was purchased, together with a written proof of purchase which identifies the bicycle or frameset by serial number.

Only authorized Specialized retailers are authorized to perform warranty service under this Limited Warranty. Should the bicycle, frameset, or any part be determined by Specialized to be covered by this Limited Warranty, it will be repaired or replaced, at Specialized’s sole option. If your bicycle or frameset is a Specialized Edition (limited edition bicycle or frameset), be aware that an exact warranty replacement may not be possible.

The original owner shall pay all labour charges connected with the repair or replacement of all parts. Under no circumstances does this Limited Warranty include the cost of travel or shipment to and from an authorized Specialized Retailer. Such costs, if any, shall be borne by the original owner.

Every Specialized bicycle and frameset has a useful product life cycle. Non-standard use, including without limitation, use in competitive events, jumping, aggressive riding, riding with heavy loads, can dramatically shorten the useful product life cycle of a Specialized bicycle or frameset. In addition, exposure of the product to humid, warm, ocean conditions and/or exposure to salinity (whether from salt water, sweat, salinity in the air) is likely to cause corrosion of the product and will shorten the product life cycle. You are advised to clean your product regularly to avoid such corrosion.

ALL SPECIALIZED BICYCLES AND FRAMESETS SHOULD BE PERIODICALLY CHECKED BY AN AUTHORIZED SPECIALIZED RETAILER for indicators of stress, potential problems, inappropriate use, or abuse.

 

THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS NOT TRANSFERABLE AND DOES NOT APPLY TO:

  • Normal wear and tear. Wear and tear parts (as listed below) are subject to damage as a result of normal use, failure to service according to Specialized’s recommendations and/or riding or installation in conditions or applications other than recommended.
  • Corrosion.
  • Damage or failure due to accident, collision, crash, misuse, abuse, or neglect.
  • Improper assembly or installation.
  • Improper alteration or installation of components, parts or accessories not originally intended for or compatible with the Specialized bicycle as sold.
  • Failure to perform maintenance or service at appropriate intervals per manufacturer manual and instructions and supported by records of such maintenance.

NO OTHER REPRESENTATION, AND NO STATEMENT OF ANYONE BUT SPECIALIZED, INCLUDING A DEMONSTRATION OF ANY KIND BY ANYONE, SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY REGARDING THIS BICYCLE OR FRAMESET.

BICYCLE FRAME AND COMPONENT WARRANTY GUIDELINES

As stated in the Bicycle Limited Warranty policy above, a frame warranty is granted only to the original owner of the Specialized bicycle or frame set, purchased from an authorized Specialized retailer.

  • Specialized reserves the right to require a proof of purchase (by fax, email, etc.), which identifies the bicycle or frame set by serial number.
  • Consumers taking advantage of these policies must work through an authorized retailer. Under no circumstances can a consumer warranty be processed directly through Specialized without going through a retailer.

By the guidelines covered under the Bicycle Limited Warranty policy above, one of the following procedures will be implemented:

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Specialized disclaims all implied warranties, including the warranty of fitness for particular purpose and merchantability. This Limited Warranty does not extend to consequential or incidental damages which are expressly disclaimed by Specialized. This Limited Warranty does not apply to helmets or tyres.
