Gusset Staff mountain bike stem

Our review

Light, strong and secure – and well priced too
Skip to view product specifications

At only 147g for its 50mm length, the Staff stem is light but still strong. The forged 6061 T6 aluminium body offers a large steerer clamping area, and when coupled with 5mm bolts, it’s easy to get it nice and tight.


It’s also stiff enough for any kind of riding, while the five-degree rise isn’t extreme and the price is great. Our only niggle is the finish – the logo’s a bit large, and some torque settings would be useful.
