Shimano has extended its "inspection and replacement program" for 11-speed Hollowtech II road cranksets to Europe, due to "potential fall and injury hazards to consumers".

All 11-speed Hollowtech II road cranksets produced between June 1, 2012 and June 30, 2019, need to be inspected, with Shimano saying that it "expects only a very small percentage of these cranksets will need to be replaced".
