Arc'teryx announced August 24 a voluntary recall for all 2016 Procline Ski Boots. There have been no injuries reported involving any Procline Ski Boots. The axis pin located at the rear of the boot can dislodge, resulting in damage to the boot and posing a fall hazard. All 2016 Procline Boots will be repaired to secure the axis pin and allow the boot to function as designed.
If you own a Procline Ski Boot, please visit recall.arcteryx.com for more information and instructions on how to return your boot free of charge for the required repair.
Arc'teryx entered the hardgoods game with their Procline mountaineering boot in 2016. The Vancouver, BC-based company started an approach shoe category three years prior, and this mountaineering boot features a split carbon cuff, allowing for 75 degrees of fore-and-aft motion, in addition to lateral flexibility. This boot isn't made for hard-charging descents, as it more closely resembles a mountaineering approach hiking boot than a traditional alpine boot, reported John Stifter.
This recall involves Arc'teryx Procline ski mountaineering boots sold in the following models:
Procline carbon support boot, Procline carbon lite boot. The boots were sold in one color, cayenne (orange)/black and in men's sizes 71⁄2 to 14 and women's sizes 6 to 101⁄2 (MONDO sizes 23-30.5). "Arc'teryx" is located on the front of the boot.
Men's Procline support boot, and Men's Procline lite boot. The boots were sold in one color, grey/black and in sizes 71⁄2 to 14 (MONDO sizes 25-30.5). "Arc'teryx" is located on the front of the boot.
Women's Procline lite boot, and Women's Procline support boot. The boots were sold in one color, euphoria (yellow)/black and in sizes 6 to 101⁄2 (MONDO sizes 23 – 27.5). "Arc'teryx" is located on the front of the boot.
Only the foregoing models of boots that do not have a colored dot on the inside of the spoiler (the upper portion of the rear of the boot) are included in the recall.
