Our best value stem for 35mm bars.
- Cold forged in Taiwan
- Equally robust as our CNC'd stems
- Rounder edges and smoother contours
- More DH/Enduro focused than the HiFi
- 35mm bar mount
Forging is a process in which a lump of raw material called a slug is compressed into a desired shape using tooling in a press. Forging produces extremely strong parts as the grain structure of the metal flows with the shape of the geometry.
Downsides of forging are that it is not as accurate as CNC Machining, therefore some aspects of the part still require machining such as the threads for the screws, and the faces which require high tolerance such as the bar interface or steerer bore.
Forging is generally much quicker than CNC Machining and can produce much less waste if near net forging is used, in whereby the slug is cast to closely resemble the final shape of the part.
Generally our forged parts are less expensive than our CNC Machined parts.
I am a Chromag athlete. First off, I decided to purchase this stem because I was having issues with the bars twisting after X-Ups or light bails on my dirt jumper. I put this stem on, and the solid bolts connecting the stem to the steerer tube fixed my problem right away. This thing both holds your bars in the right spot, and properly clamps to your steerer tube.
This stem is so good at connecting my steerer tube to my Fubar! Stiff, light, looks cool. Kids dig it!
Doesn’t get much better than this stem. No nonsense and stiff. I have this stem on all of my bikes.
love my stem. it fits great on the bike and love the different colours
Really well constructed, light weight, strong and looks awesome on my bike.
I am a huge fan of short stems and this one has to be my favorite. 5mm bolts and good looks for the win.
Have put this on my Santa Bronson as the orignal stem was a bit longer, no complaints, does what it is supposed to do, will just need to change the bolts for black ones and would welcome a non-shiny version of 35mm but those are minor things.
It holds my handlebar to the steer tube of my fork. That's what i wanted it to do, and it does it. I am super happy. And it comes in red!
