What does the 2 year warranty cover?
Warranty covers Pearl Cycles parts as well as parts from original component manufacturers, for example DT Swiss. The warranty only covers material and processing defects that already existed on delivery.
Spare and ware parts such as drivetrain components (chain and cassette), paintwork, bearings or cables are not covered by the Pearl Cycles warranty. Nor is any damage caused by external factors from accidental damage, using the bike beyond it’s intended use or wear and tear.
A warranty claim is independent of the original owner of the bike. That means, if you’ve bought the bike second hand and it’s less than 2 years old, you can still make a claim.
Pearl Cycles will cover any associated rebuilding, shipping and customs charges for warranty cases.
What does the 10 year guarantee cover?
However, if issues should arise, in addition to the legal warranty you have, we also offer a 10-year guarantee on our frames, seatposts, cockpits, and forks for racing bikes, triathlon bikes and commuter bikes from the date of purchase.
The guarantee only covers material and processing defects that already existed on delivery. Any damage by external factors is not covered under guarantee. For example, wear and tear.
You must be the original owner of the bike and you can make a guarantee claim up to 10 years from the date of purchase.
In case of a guarantee claim, the costs of rebuilding, shipping and customs (if applicable) should be covered by the owner of the bike.
If the item to be replaced is no longer available in the original color, you will receive another color or an upgrade to the successor model.

What is not covered by guarantee or warranty?
Here’s a few examples of what we do not cover:
- Accidental damage (damage to the bike caused by a collision, dropping or similar)
- Wear and tear
- Damage from corrosion
- Abuse (riding your bike outside of its intended use, see the bike classification)
What’s the process?
Once you’ve sent your claim, including pictures, one of our experts will assess whether we need further investigation.If that happens we’ll ask you to either:
- Take the bike to a nearby Pearl Cycles dealer who will inspect your bike for any defects or faults and feed that back to us.
- Send the bike to us to be inspected.
After inspection we’ll be able to tell you whether all, some or none of the problems with your bike are covered by warranty or guarantee.
We’ll send you a quote for any necessary replacements and repairs that are not covered and, if you’d like, carry out that work while we have your bike.
Our technical service team will be in touch with you regularly to assist with the process and advise over the next steps.
The process can take between 2 and 6 weeks, depending on the work needed and whether you need to send the bike to us.
