Tidy, good looking race stem for the money.

Maxm’s stem is a little lightweight cracker too, with a quality look as well that reflects its price.


A neat octagonal design has rounded outer facets and cutaway twin bolt design on the low stack steerer clamp. The thin butted shaft keeps weight super low and while it twists if you get angry nothing too unnerving’s going on.


The polished alloy face plate didn’t have the sharp edges of others on test but we’d be slightly concerned running the toothed front plate with a carbon bar. Don’t go mental tightening it onto a thinwalled alloy one either.
