Apollo Phantom Voluntary Safety Recall (US ONLY)Updated 6 months ago

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Apollo Scooters is conducting a Voluntary Safety Recall of Phantom V1, V2, and 60V models.

How can I tell if my unit is affected by the recall? 

These electric scooters were sold from June 2021 to May 2023. 

To determine if your unit has  been affected by the recall, look on the label on the bottom of the product and check if the serial number has a date code preceding 2208. The serial number has eight numbers at the end. The date code will be the first four numbers in the eight number sequence as illustrated by the red circle below.

Why are you conducting a recall? 

There is a risk the Stem Bolt can come loose, causing the suspension and wheel assembly to separate, posing fall and injury hazards.  A replacement bolt is available to all customers with this model, at no charge. The bolt has been be shipped to all affected consumers along with a video link demonstrating how consumers can install the new bolt on their scooter at home.

We have also made our servicing partner locations available to any consumers to have the bolt replaced or tightened free of charge. If you would like to schedule a servicing appointment to have your bolt replaced, fill out our Repair Form to start the process and book your appointment.

Can I repair the product myself? 

Yes. You may replace the bolt on your own following the instructions in our replacement video
