EXTENDED WARRANTY REGULATIONS FOR CARBON WHEELS
In addition to the statutory 24-month warranty which applies from the date of purchase any DT Swiss product, we offer an extended warranty service for carbon wheels with our Fair-Share Policy.
We offer for the original verifiable owner a lifetime warranty for material and workmanship defects. Of course this covers also any proper end-use-category riding damage that might result from such a material or workmanship defect. All other damages that occur during the use of the product are regulated by our Fair-Share Policy. We guarantee the original verifiable owner a helpful, cost-conscious as well as environment-friendly solution and will replace the broken rim within the first 10 years after the date of purchase as part of our Fair-Share-Policy, for a service fee of CHF 249 / EUR 249 / USD 249.
No registration required
We don’t require a product registration in advance. Instead, we offer you uncomplicated assistance. In the occasion of a damage, only the original sales receipt is required. With this, you can contact our responsible Service Center directly and use our “warranty claim form” if required.
