Both the 10° and 17° stem can be run with a positive or negative rise and the reversible graphics will be right in either direction.

FAQ

Can I flip a Thomson Stem?

You may flip the X2 and X4 Thomson stems to create different rise options. The logo on the 10° X4 stems is reversible so you may run negative and the logo will not be upside down.

Will X2 work with 31.7 bars?

Yes, 31.8 and 31.7 both refer to 1.250 inch diameter. 1.250 inch converts to 31.75mm. Some people round up to 31.8, some round down to 31.7.

Is X2 safe for carbon fiber?

X2 is engineered to work very well with both carbon handlebars and carbon steerer tubes. All torque requirements in our instructions must be followed for carbon components to be used safely. Our carbon bars work very nicely with X2!

Why did you change steerer clamps on X2? Were there problems with the old clamp?

We changed to save weight. There were no problems with the old clamp but it did add about 20 grams.

Can I use X2 for cyclocross?

We recommend using X4 to avoid bar slip.

What is the stack height of the X2 Stem?

36mm
