When we started to develop our enduro stem, we set goals such as finding the best compromise between lightness, strength, and stiffness, and working on shapes to make this stem an extension of your frame. According to us, this is mission accomplished, but its up to you to say!
We created one longer model (60mm) and one longer model only. Why? Because we think its the ideal compromise for modern/gravity-oriented Enduro and All-mountain bikes.
This length enables you to feel comfortable while pedaling and offers you a comparable feeling and the same aggressive position as an even shorter stem when the slope gets down.
If we had no choice but making compromises to bring this stem to the highest level in the All-mountain/Enduro categories, its production and finish are not making compromises! We called out the most advanced manufacturing processes to offer the most sophisticated stem possible.
In order to put all the trump cards on our side, we chose to forge our stem - forged rather than machined to obtain the best weight/reliability ratio.
The utilization of Aluminum 2014, one of the best alloys for forging, enables to reach a weight of only 165g, and this without giving up on the reliability and stiffness required to beat a stem up!
By keeping the machining prints on and choosing an anodized matt black finish, the stem embraces a simple, unique, and sleek design, which is ALPHAs signature.
Finally, the logos are laser-engraved instead of using pad printing to produce a durable stem.
Top cap, tightening screw and spacers are not included.
