October 07, 2022

Attention Whisky Riders,

This is a Safety Notice concerning select Whisky No.9 12F and No.9 24F Drop Handlebars that were delivered to Whisky retailers between December 2017 and August 10, 2022.

We have received reports indicating that some of these No.9 12F and No.9 24F handlebars have cracked where the brake/shift levers are installed. This has the potential to cause a crash and serious injury to the rider.

The affected handlebars include:

  • Whisky No.9 12F Drop Handlebar – Carbon, Black, All Sizes 
  • Whisky No.9 24F Drop Handlebar – Carbon, Black, All Sizes  

No other Whisky handlebars are affected or included in this notice.

If you believe you have one of the handlebars included in this notice, please stop using them immediately and until further notice. Contact the retailer where you made your purchase if they have not contacted you already.

Whisky team members are working with the larger QBP organization on a resolution to get you back up and riding quickly and safely. We are also working with the Consumer Products Safety Commission and Health Canada to conduct a formal voluntary recall, which will be announced soon.

We sincerely apologize for this situation and any inconvenience it causes. For updates, please visit With any questions, please contact QBP via email at or at 800-346-3340.
