At 103 grams, this is the lightest, most advanced alloy stem in the Ritchey line, and possibly the world
This revolutionary patented design starts with a bar clamp that wraps a full 260 degrees around the handlebar to distribute clamping stress more evenly through the handlebar, faceplate, hardware and stem body. The steer tube clamp uses three bolts and a curved slot to reduce clamp stress on the steer tube.
The body is 3D forged from an advanced 7050 aluminum and internally machined for further weight reduction. Premium quality CrMo steel T-20 TORX bolts are used throughout, but in a smaller size that shaves a few more grams with no sacrifice in strength or rigidity.
The resulting CEN-approved stem is 20 grams lighter and even stiffer than our already stiff and lightweight 4-Axis.
- Fits most road and mountain bars.
- 4xT-20 Torx faceplate bolts and patented 260 degree bar clamp design reduces weight, increases stiffness and distributes stress more evenly.
- 3xT-20 Torx steer tube bolts and curved clamp slot reduces weight and steer tube stress.
- 260° clamp design
- Angle: 84° / 6°.
- Finish: Blatte.
