SP Hub Warranty.

2 Year Warranty: SP hubs supplied by USE are covered under a 2 year warranty period beginning from the original date of purchase. Proof of the original purchase date is required for warranty service.

Warranty limitations.

During the warranty period, USE will provide warranty service for SP dynamo hubs sold by USE that fail under normal environments, following the terms and conditions.

The warranty does not apply to any SP product failure caused by an accident, abuse, mishandling, improper usage (including use contrary to the product description or instructions, beyond the extent of the products intended use, or for tooling or testing purpose), alteration, abnormal mechanical or environmental condition, acts of nature or improper installation.

Repair and replacement guidelines.

For products purchased by an authorised Exposure Lights/USE distributor or reseller, customers must contact the original seller if SP products cease to function or an abnormal condition occurs. Describe the condition to the seller so the seller is able to asses whether the problem is covered under warranty. If the claim meets warranty conditions, please arrange to send it back to the seller. USE retains sole discretion on whether to repair or replace warrantee items with a refurbished product or functional equivalent. The decision by USE shall be final.

For SP products bought from other SP resellers, please contact your place of purchase. USE only accept responsibility for products bought under the USE/ Exposure company.

If a defective product is out of the warranty period or does not meet warranty conditions or is to be replace under warranty conditions, please see the replacement program.

REPLACEMENT PROGRAM:

As with many dynamo hubs, bearings are only serviceable by disassembling the hub, this requires disassembling the wheel from spokes. Bearings will need to be changed after prolonged use. During the warranty period, USE offers to exchange hubs that require a bearing service/change which are not defective but have simply worn out. The hub is exchanged by USE for a refurbished hub as all hubs are sent back to the manufacturer for bearing services. Special tools and jigs are needed for this process which means it cannot be done by any resellers.

USE and SP recognise that dismantling a wheel can be costly so a supported price for the normal hub bearing replacement is offered. Please ask the seller for costs involved. USE or SP will not pay for dismantling or rebuilding of wheels due to a defective hub or bearing service. Only Postage from USE back to reseller is covered by USE.
