ATOMIC USA CONDUCTING VOLUNTARY RECALL OF THE HEEL COMPONENTS OF CERTAIN SKI BINDINGS MANUFACTURED BETWEEN 1998 AND 2002

OGDEN, UTAH, DECEMBER 24, 2008

-- Atomic Ski USA, Inc. is carrying out a voluntary precautionary recall of heel components of certain bindings manufactured between 1998 and 2002. This recall applies to the below listed models of the ATOMIC Race, Xentrix, Device, Centro and DYNAMIC ski bindings produced between 1998 and 2002.

This safety recall is effective immediately, and these bindings must no longer be used. Atomic desires to replace the heel components of the listed bindings. The heel housing component of these bindings could crack, possibly causing the binding to release early, posing a falling risk to the skier.

Atomic is directing owners of these models to bring their skis to an authorized Atomic USA Ski Dealer, where an appropriate replacement of the affected heel components will be made free of charge.

“Bindings play a major role in ski safety equipment. We decided to conduct this voluntary, precautionary recall for the safety of our consumers who continue to enjoy these Atomic binding models today,” said Michael Adams, General Manager, Atomic USA.

To assist consumers in learning about this recall and in finding Atomic USA Ski Dealers where the affected heel components can be returned, Atomic USA recommends that consumers visit
