Arc’teryx Issues Recall on First-Gen Procline Boots

Arc'teryx photo

This morning, Arc'teryx announced a voluntary recall on all its first-generation Procline ski boots. A defect was discovered in some boots where the rear axis pin failed, which could potentially lead to a fall hazard. The backcountry ski boots, introduced two years ago, feature an innovative walk mode mechanism that allows for lateral flex in the ankle area in addition to standard rearward flex, aiding in climbing and skinning on steep slopes.

The recall affects all boots manufactured between November 1, 2015 and March 31, 2017. If you own a pair of these boots, Arc'teryx has more information here.

Arc'teryx’s Equipment President Jon Hoerauf issued a letter on the recall:

To Our Loyal Consumers,

Today, we’re announcing a voluntary recall for all first generation Procline Ski Boots sold by Arc’teryx Equipment.

We are all deeply committed to the safety of our users and while there have been no injuries reported involving any Procline Ski Boots, our commitment to our users’ safety leads us to issue this recall to make the required axis pin repair. In a small number of boots, the axis pin has dislodged which could cause the skier to lose control or fall and suffer injuries. 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.

On behalf of Arc’teryx, thank you for your patience as we bring this new technology to market. Innovation and quality are foundational building blocks of our brand design culture. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this issue has caused and wish you to know that over our 25 year history of making climbing equipment we have been and remain committed to creating products that enable consumers to move safely in the mountains.

Sincerely,

Jon Hoerauf
President and GM

A Tribute to Bryce Newcomb’s Spirit of Infectious Energy and Permanent Stoke

This weekend, the ski community was devastated by news that Jackson’s Bryce Newcomb lost his battle with a traumatic brain injury. Newcomb was involved in a cornice collapse outside the Jackson Hole Resort's boundary in late March. For anyone who knew Newcomb, one thing always stood out: his absolutely infectious energy both on and off the mountain. He truly lived by the motto of “SEND IT,” spreading his sense of humor and stoke and convincing all those who rode with him that anything was
