In addition to our limited warranty, many Specialized and Roval-branded products are covered under our Assisted Replacement Policy. If you damage an eligible product while riding and it’s not covered under warranty, we’ll replace or repair it at a discounted price.

Important Terms for the Assisted Replacement Policy

In all cases, the policy applies only to damage that happened during riding. It does not apply to cosmetic damage.

To take advantage of this policy, you must go to an Authorized Specialized Retailer. Depending on the damage, we’ll determine in our discretion whether to replace or repair the product. The pricing for the replacement or repair depends on your location, the product, and how long you’ve owned it. Your retailer 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 needs to be replaced and we no longer have it in stock, we’ll try our best to find you the most similar product then available.

Shipping costs are never included, and your Specialized retailer may charge you for labor or administrative costs. Your retailer will retain possession of the damaged product so it can be properly disposed.

Coverage period is based on the purchase date of the original product. The period does not start over when a product is replaced.

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

If you have any questions about our Warranty or Assisted Replacement policies, please drop us a line: Rider Care Form.
