Fresh and lighter unit

Until recently, Truvativ’s AKA stem was considered a little too heavy for weight weenies to get lightheaded over.

This new 130g cold-forged alloy version has a fresh look but it's still a little way short of the sharp end of cross-country stem weight.

Having said that, if you're the type of rider who likes bars nearer 700mm wide than a race-orientated 600mm, a few extra grams of alloy insurance is worth having.

Our stem is being used on a 140mm-travel trail bike and we’re very happy with the performance after six weeks.
