What do I do if I crashed my carbon frame or part?

Carbon fiber is a great material for premium bike frames and parts. However if a carbon part or frame experiences an impact, carbon can hide internal damage. For this reason, determining its integrity requires more expertise than is needed to examine a metal part. If your carbon part or frame has been crashed, we strongly urge you to have it assessed by your local Trek dealer.

Please download and read our Carbon Fiber Care & Maintenance Flyer(.pdf 596k) and our information on Caring for the Carbon Steer Tube on your Fork flyer (.pdf 922k). Also read the FAQ about repairing carbon fiber parts here.

We do offer a Loyalty/Carbon Care program via our dealer network for carbon frames which gives a rider a credit toward a new frame/part. To take advantage of this program contact your local Trek retailer.
