A DH and Enduro worthy stem that's also light enough for XC and Cyclocross
A company that produces parts for both the aerospace and MTB industries, Thomson are renowned for the precision and meticulously detailed machining that goes into all their parts. Before droppers brought on the demise of rigid seatposts Thomson posts were some of the most sought after on the market. They continue to make fantastic stems that are strong, lightweight and will give your mountainbike a nice touch of bling.
The steerer clamp is 'knee friendly' - and Thomson confidently say that the X4 is the best combination of strength and weight around, making them perfect not just for XC but for Enduro and Downhill riders.
The logo on the X4 stems is reversible, meaning you can flip the stem and the logo will not be upside down. You can safely run this stem with carbon bars (though be aware of the torque requirements included in the instructions).
The 40-60mm stems have a tough looking, blocky appearance that looks great on Enduro and DH bikes while the longer stems have a sleeker appearance more fitting to an XC bike.
The Thomson X4 stem is certified to: EN 14766 2006 MTB and DIN CERTCO: 2006 MTB. Built and tested to the same standard as Thomson aerospace parts.
