Ascend Cabrillo and Minaret e-bikes sold by Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s stores nationwide and online at basspro.com and cabelas.com from January 2023 through November 2023 for between $1,400 and $1,500, are being recalled due to a fire risk.
The problem stems from the wiring harness that manages the charging of the lithium-ion battery that was not properly assembled, creating a risk of overheating and fire while charging. There are reports of the battery catching on fire and one of those fires resulting in second-degree burns of a victim.
There is not a simple fix for the issue. The recall asks owners to stop charging their bikes and return them for a refund.
