Stiff and light with the cleanest accessory solutions available

When all you need is the right position, the Elite stem gets it done and more. The strong and light alloy stem is your bike's best workhorse and also features Blendr accessory integration for a sleek setup.

Key features
- Seamless accessory integration with Blendr Elite
- 6061-T6, 3D, forged alloy construction
- 4-bolt dual band clamp retains stiffness and reduces weight
- Opposing 2-bolt steerer tube clamp
- Uses M5 countersunk, corrosion-resistant steel bolts with 5.2Nm torque spec
- Safe for use on carbon steerer tubes and handlebars
- Includes one Blendr base to integrate Ion lights and Trip computers.

Stem angle is one of the factors that determines handlebar height. A listed angle of 0 degrees actually provides a rise of 16-20 degrees, depending on the bike's head-tube angle. Flexible, athletic riders prefer lower-rise stems, while recreational riders usually favor higher-rise stems.

Stem length is measured along the side of the stem from the center of the steerer to the center of the handlebar clamp (see diagram). Keep in mind that as a stem provides more rise, its effective length decreases. In the example above, if the +17-degree stem measures 135 mm, it actually extends 108 mm parallel to the ground.
