Not to be confused with the outwardly similar mountain bike stem of the same name, this is the most affordable in the Pro range and is produced using a 3D forging process and 6061 grade aluminium alloy.
The 130mm version tested here weighs just 157g, which is pretty good going for something that managed to come in the top ﬁve of our deﬂection testing. The edges of the bar clamp are nicely rounded and the steerer clamp bolts are domed head to reduce the risk of potential knee injury.
It includes a 1in converter shim for older style 1in threadless forks, and is available in 26mm and 31.8mm versions for standard or oversized bars.
