- Identification number:
Rollerblade® Tempest inline skates
This recall invovles Rollerblade® brand, Tempest series inline skates for men and women. The inline skates include models 110, 100 and 90 and come in various colours. The name “Rollerblade” is printed across the cuff buckle and on the tongue of the skate boot. The recalled inline skates can also be identified by a production date code (stamped under the foot bed) of December 31, 2013 and before.
Inline skates that are not subject to this recall will have a black frame mounting bolt instead of chrome.
The mounting holes in the boot and frame can be misaligned, causing the boot to separate from the frame and posing a fall hazard.
Neither Tecnica Group Canada nor Health Canada has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of these inline skates.
Approximately 2,940 of the recalled inline skates were sold throughout Canada by various retailers.
Time period sold
The recalled inline skates were sold between January 2011 and December 2013.
Place of origin
Manufactured in Thailand.
