Clever handlebar design allows for the shortest stem length possible

We chat with Pacenti about its aggro new bar and stem combo

Mountain bike stems have been shrinking down to sub-50mm lengths for many years. But at some point, the stem can’t get shorter than the diameter of the handlebar it’s mounted to. 

Pacenti’s P-Dent concept uses a concave ‘dent’ that allows the handlebar to wrap around the stem, giving riders the option to run stems as short as 20mm.
