Direct Mount Stems fit forks from Rock Shox, Fox, and Manitou. Marzochi forks 2012 and newer are also compatible with our Direct Mount.
Three sizes are available for 31.8mm handlebars: our 40/50mm Direct Mount Drop Stem puts the handlebar 10mm lower than a standard stem, and lower than an adjustable direct mount design. We also offer a 50mm Direct Mount Stems with 30 degrees of rise.
65mm-wide handlebar clamp width creates maximum torsional stiffness, which translates into better steering precision.
The Direct Mount Stem is 100% American made.
