It's great to have good friends in the bicycle business who've given us access to products from one of the largest and best carbon factories in the world. This stem is manufactured in the same leading edge facility where many of the big brand names have their carbon components made.
The designers have taken their best ideas from stems they produce for the big names and put them into this stem. Constructed of hand laid carbon fiber with aluminum alloy clamps, this stem weighs only 174 grams in the 120 mm length (9 cm), with hardware. (Please see the complete weight table for all lengths below.) A beautifully finished high gloss makes this stem a very cool upgrade for your bike.
The unidirectional carbon absorbs harsh vibrations and is very stiff, even when you're out of the saddle. The 4 bolt handlebar clamp is made of 7075 T6 Aluminum alloy and holds your handlebar so it will not slip (when properly tightened of course). Because it has a nice wide clamp, the clamping force is distributed across a large area, making this stem ideal for carbon handlebars.
The fork clamp is also very well designed and strong, using an opposed bolt system for a secure grip. Very important is the fact that this stem is light, but not super light. It's plenty beefy enough so you can corner and descend with confidence.
This stem is compatible with forks that have either carbon or non-carbon steering tubes. It is also compatible with popular 31.8 mm diameter carbon and aluminum handlebars as well as the matching Pro Carbon handlebar that we have available.
