@ One of the most modern stem in the market, provided with new patented system D.C.S. (Diagonal Closing System) This fork clamp closing system has been designed in order to avoid extra load in order not to squeeze and stress the carbon fork steerer. Many riders overtighten the screws when the stem moves and often make the steerer brake. The idea is based on the fact that the two clamp work independently with the diagonal instead of in the center as many stems do, This stem is tested and works for road and MTB.

    Buy with threadlock…, July 19, 2014

    After experimenting around with 3 different stems, I found this to be the best size for my needs. I like the quality, and it looks nice, but there was an issue… After installing carbon bars and torquing the bolts up to just past hand tight I made the mistake of expecting them to stay on properly.
    On my first ride, my bars twisted backward while jumping off a 3 inch curb, which 120mm soft suspension. At first I thought the bars weren’t gripping properly, but upon getting home (2 miles of very, very careful handlebar use) I discovered that the face plate bolts had all loosened significantly. Some thread lock and a bit more torque should fix this, but i have never had a stem do this!
    The design here is good, and it’s not too heavy. The sand black color is a very flat black with a white logo. It all came as advertised, and apparently works okay with carbon bars, but be sure to tighten the bolts down to the max torque allowance of your parts, otherwise this might just loosen up on you. It’s a great stem otherwise, it just hasn’t left a great first impression! Don’t hesitate to buy this, just be sure to keep an eye on these bolts.

    When I purchased my Airborne Goblin mountain bike it came with a 110mm stem. I felt a bit too far forward in the cockpit and decided to shorten things up. This fit the bill nicely and bolted right up to my new ControlTech Carbon handlebars.

    I like the idea of the offset steerer tube clamp bolts as well. I don’t have a carbon steerer so I’m not sure if it makes a difference or not.

    I absolutely love the design and the color scheme and the weight and the price. For the price and weight combination its hard to get better even if it is carbon.
