BikeRadar score 4/5

Oval Concepts are gradually gaining the recognition they deserve for some smart and individual kit.

The USP here is the reversed bolt face plate clamp, where the bar clamping bolts run backwards with heads on the inside not the outside. It looks different and OC claim big stress relief advantages and it certainly feels pretty stiff compared to lighter stems.

While it's an arse to adjust without ball ended keys it means you can buy a replacement face plate rather than binning the whole lot if you strip a thread.Flip flop decals mean easy inversion too.
