Crash Replacement Policy

The Pacenti Cycle Design crash replacement policy is only valid for the original owner and is non-transferrable.

In the case of a wheel, any components attached to the wheel (e.g. a cassette), should be first removed by the owner before returning the wheel. Handlebars should have all components removed before return.

Crash replacement does not cover the following:

  • Normal wear and tear expected with the use of high quality road and mountain bike components.
  • Products on which the serial numbers, decals, production batch codes or other identifying marks have been removed.
  • Misuse, incorrect installation or improper maintenance, use of incompatible parts or components, negligence or theft of the product.
  • If the case is determined by Pacenti Cycle Design or the authorised distributor to be only cosmetic.
  • Individual rims purchased to be built by a third party into a wheel set.
  • Shipping costs to or from Pacenti Cycle Design or the authorized distributor.
