Important Terms for the Van Dessel Crash Replacement Program

In all cases, the program applies only to damage that happened during riding. The Van Dessel Crash Replacement Program does not apply to cosmetic damage or 3rd party components. To take advantage of this program, you must contact an Authorized Van Dessel dealer or distributor to start the process. Depending on the damage, we’ll determine in our discretion whether the product damage is applicable for the Van Dessel Crash Replacement Program. The pricing for the replacement depends on your location, the product, and how long you’ve owned it. Your Van Dessel dealer or distributor will have the details. A valid proof of purchase is required (this applies to subsequent owners, too.) We do not keep inventory forever. If your product meets the Van Dessel Crash Replacement Program criteria and needs to be replaced and we no longer have it in stock, we’ll try our best to find you the most similar product currently available.

Shipping costs are never included, and your Van Dessel dealer or distributor may charge you for labor costs and/or any costs associated with processing your claim. Your Van Dessel dealer or distributor will retain possession of the damaged product so it can be pulled out of the marketplace and properly disposed of.

Coverage period is based on the original purchase date of the original product. The time period does not start over when a product is replaced under the Van Dessel Crash Replacement Program. 

We want to make sure you are completely satisfied and stand behind our products but we do reserve our right to deny coverage if we determine in our discretion that the policy is being abused.

USEFUL LIFE CYCLE

Every VAN DESSEL bicycle and frameset has a useful life cycle. This useful life cycle is not the same as the warranty period. The warranty identifies the period of time that VAN DESSEL will replace the product if this becomes necessary. When VAN DESSEL provides a warranty, this does not guarantee that the product will last forever. The length of the useful life cycle of a VAN DESSEL bicycle will vary depending on the type of bike, riding conditions and care the bike receives. Competition, jumping, downhill racing, free-riding, trick riding, trial riding, riding in severe conditions or climates, riding with heavy loads or any other non-standard use can substantially shorten the useful product life cycle of a VAN DESSEL bicycle or frame set. Any one or a combination of these conditions may result in an unpredictable failure of a VAN DESSEL bicycle or frame set that would not be covered by this warranty. All VAN DESSEL bicycles and frame sets should be periodically checked by an authorized VAN DESSEL dealer for indication of potential failures including cracks, corrosion, dents, deformation, paint peeling, and any other indications of potential problems, inappropriate use or abuse. These are important safety checks and very important in the prevention of accidents, bodily injury to the rider, and a shortened useful product life cycle of any VAN DESSEL bicycle or frameset. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state. 

For products purchased before 2016, please contact us directly for warranty coverage.
