  • Improper assemble
  • Improper maintenance 
  • Damage caused by corrosion

  • Non-compliance with the regular prescribed servicing by a specialist dealer 
  • Any alterations to frames, forks or components

Requirements for claiming under the warranty; registration

A prerequisite for any claims to be made under this voluntary manufacturer’s warranty is that the first rightful owner of the bicycle shall have completed the online registration for the ROTWILD bicycle or frameset acquired within 30 days of the date of purchase on our website. If no registration has been completed, the statutory guarantee applies.  

This warranty becomes valid from the date of purchase, shall exclusively apply to the first legal owner and is not transferable. This warranty shall exclusively apply to ROTWILD bikes which have been purchased from an authorised dealer or distributor.

Claiming and implementing the warranty; claims to only be processed via an authorised retailer

In order to claim on the warranty the bike must be brought to a ROTWILD authorised retailer. Your retailer is always your point of contact regarding the warranty. The bike must be fully assembled. The purchase receipt with the date of purchase and identifying frame number must be shown. 

Under warranty claims defective frames or rear frames will be repaired or replaced by a corresponding model. Replaced parts become the property of ROTWILD. ROTWILD does not guarantee that all installed components are compatible with replacement frames.  

Warranty claims do not extent the warranty period or start a new warranty period. The warranty period for installed replacement parts shall cease upon the end of the warranty period for the whole bike.  

This warranty does not cover any travel or shipping costs incurred to transport the ROTWILD product to an authorised ROTWILD retailer under any circumstances. Such costs shall be incurred by the warrantee.

Exclusion of further claims

Any further claims, particularly those relating to replacement of damage apart from that occurring to the bicycle, are excluded – provided there is no obligatory legal liability. Warranty claims reported in a country other than that in which the purchase took place may result in appropriate charges or other restrictions, which the provider of the warranty may define at its reasonable discretion.
