Bubbles detected

Silva recalls defected Arc and Spike compasses due to bubbles in the compass capsule. We encourage you to send in your defective Arc or Spike compass and we’ll give you a full refund.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at silvasales@silva.se.

Ongoing quality check

We have detected that some product batches of the Arc and Spike compasses have bubbles in the compass capsule.

We have invested countless hours in interviews with orienteers and product testing when developing the Arc and Spike series. Therefore, it is highly regrettable that we now have detected quality problems that lead to bubbles, and in some cases leakage, in the compass capsule.

We do everything in our power to improve this product for future deliveries. We are currently testing the compasses in stock by pressing the capsule and expose the compass to heat/cold and pressure to simulate altitude, to guarantee that the compasses we deliver are 100 % free from defects.
