The Thomson Elite X4 Stem grew out of the legacy of the Thomson Elite line.
A great all around modern stem to fit 31.8mm diameter handlebars. This stem is ready to ride where you are. The design team for the new Thomson X4 had a tough goal: make a stem better than the Thomson Elite 25.4. Early tests showed us that our competitors' 31.8 stems were heavier and weaker than our Thomson Elite 25.4. At Thomson the X4 was not done until it was stronger, lighter and longer lived than the legendary Thomson Elite.
The Thomson X4 stem allows you to realize the benefits of stiffer forks and stiffer 31.8 bars. X4 offers precise steering, tracking and more control while riding all wrapped up in a beautiful design. The Thomson X4 is stronger and 30 grams lighter than the Thomson Elite 25.4 mountain stem. It features a traditional steerer clamp that is shaped to save weight and to be knee friendly. X4 is absolutely the best combination of strength and weight available. Thomson stems are the strongest in the industry meaning freeride and downhill riders can run Thomson confidently. Solid one piece 7000 series aluminum extruded billet precision machined by Thomson in our Macon Georgia factory. Built and tested to the same standards as our aerospace parts.
The best stem for all-around Mountain Bike and Cyclocross riding.
