RipStik motorized caster boards recalled by Razor due to fall hazard

Razor 1Razor is recalling about 158,000 RipStik motorized caster boards.

The rear wheel can stop rotating and lock up while in use, posing a fall hazard.

Razor has received more than 700 reports of the rear wheel malfunction, resulting in four injuries, including one loose tooth and three scrapes and bruises.

This recall involves Razor RipStik electric motorized caster boards. The boards have two wheels, a hub motor, and a lithium ion battery. They have a wireless digital hand remote that controls the speed up to 10 mph.

The manufacturing date is on the bar code label located on the bottom of the caster board and Razor USA LLC is embossed on the bottom. “RipStik” is printed on the top of the blue-and-black boards.

The caster boards were sold at Target, Toys R Us, Walmart, and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Razor.com, Target.com, toysrus.com, and Walmart.com and other websites from February 2016 through April 2017. The cost was about $180.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled caster boards and contact Razor to receive a free repair kit, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.

For more information, call Razor at 866-467-2967 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or online at www.Razor.com and click on Recall Information.
