As you’d expect from Lancashire’s leading machinists this stem is totally CNC machined from single billet. Covered in pockets and ribs with neatly radiused clamp edges, smooth internal butts and laser-etched logos, it’s light without losing stiffness.
Two well-buried opposed bolts close the ‘shallow S’ split at the back to reduce stress on lightweight steerer tubes. The four-bolt front plate can be switched to the super-cunning Hope light mount one and there are loads of colour options. In terms of price versus performance, we can’t fault Hope.
