RACE PRODUCTIONS N.V. LIMITED WARRANTY

Race Productions N.V., a Belgium Corporation located at 3583 Paal, Belgium, makes the following Limited Warranty concerning Ridley bicycles and framesets:

1. Ridley Limited Five (5) – Year Warranty

Frames: Subject to the following limitations, terms and conditions Ridley frames are warranted by Race Productions N.V. against manufacturing defects in materials and/or workmanship for five (5) years of the original owner if the frame is purchased an authorized Ridley dealer.

The five (5) year warranty is conditioned upon the bicycle being operated under normal conditions and use, and properly maintained.

This limited warranty does not apply to paint/finish, frame fixtures and components attached to the bicycle/frameset such as front forks, wheels, drive train, brakes, seatpost, handlebar and stem or any suspension related parts or components.

Paint and finish of the frame are warranted against manufacturing defects in materials and/or workmanship for a period of two (2) years.

Components assembled to the bicycle/frameset such as wheels, drive train, brakes, seatpost, handlebar and stem or any suspension related parts or components are covered under the limited warranty of their manufacturers.

This warranty is void if the bicycle or frameset was not purchased new from or not properly assembled by an authorized Ridley dealer.

2. Additional conditions

This Limited Warranty is made only to the original owner of this new Ridley bicycle or frameset purchased from an authorized Ridley dealer, and it shall remain in force only as long as the original owner retains ownership of the Ridley bicycle. This Limited Warranty is not transferable.

In order to exercise your rights under this limited warranty, the bicycle or frameset must be presented to an authorized Ridley dealer, together with a receipt, bill of sale or other appropriate written proof of purchase that identifies the bicycle or frameset by serial number. Should this bicycle, frameset or any part be determined by Race Productions N.V. to be covered by this warranty, it will be repaired or replaced, at Race Productions N.V. sole option, which will be conclusive and binding. The original owner shall pay all labor charges connected with the repair or replacement of all parts. Under no circumstances does this limited warranty include the cost of travel or shipment to and from an authorized Ridley dealer. Such costs, if any, shall be borne by the original owner.

This limited warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear, nor to claimed defects, malfunctions or failures that result from abuse, neglect, improper assembly, improper maintenance, alteration, collision, crash or misuse. This bicycle or Frameset has not been designed, engineered, distributed, manufactured, or retailed for uses in trick riding, ramp riding, jumping, aggressive riding, riding on severe terrain, riding in severe climates, riding with heavy loads, commercial activities, or any similar activities; such uses may damage the bicycle, can cause serious injury to the rider, and in all cases will void this warranty.

3. Useful product life cycle

Every Ridley bicycle and frameset has a useful product life cycle. The length of that useful product life cycle will vary with the construction and materials of the bicycle or frameset, the maintenance and care the bicycle or frameset receives over its useful product life cycle, and the type and amount of use the bicycle or frameset is subject to. Uses in competitive events, trick riding, ramp riding, jumping, aggressive riding, riding on severe terrain, riding in severe climates, riding with heavy loads, commercial activities and other types of non-standard use can dramatically shorten the useful product life cycle of a Ridley bicycle or frameset. Any one or a combination of these conditions may result in an unpredictable failure of a Ridley bicycle or frameset that would not be covered by this warranty. All RIDLEY BICYCLES AND FRAMESETS SHOULD BE PERIODICALLY CHECKED BY AN AUTHORIZED RIDLEY DEALER, for indicators of stress and/or potential failure, including cracks, deformation, corrosion, paint peeling, dents, and any other indicators of potential problems, inappropriate use, or abuse. These are important safety checks and very important to help prevent accidents, bodily injury to the rider and shortened useful product life cycle of a Ridley bicycle or frameset.

DOES NOT AUTHORIZE OR ALLOW ANYONE, INCLUDING ITS AUTHORIZED DEALERS, TO EXTEND ANY OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, FOR RACE PRODUCTIONS N.V..
