Boa Technology has announced a recall for potentially defective snowboard boots.

The company is recalling boots with the M3v2 secondary reel dials, which are used to adjust the fit at the forefoot and tongue of the boots. The secondary reel can become stuck in the open position, causing the fit to loosen, posing a fall hazard.

This recall involves all sizes and colors of the following snowboard boot brand models: 32, Burton, DC, DeeLuxe, Flow, Head, K2, Ride, Rome, Salomon, and Scarpa. If the M3v2 reel has an adhesive sticker dot on the front, then the dial has already been replaced and nothing further needs to be done.

These products were available at REI and other retailers nationwide and online, including at REI.com and Backcountry.com, from June 2015 through October 2015 for between $100 and $750.

The firm received two reports of incidents. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the snowboard boots and contact the retailer or Boa for a free repair kit. Free replacement reels and a repair tool will be provided with instructions.

Customers with questions about this recall can contact Boa by phone at (844) 203-1297.
