A quick glance at our Build Gallery will show that we're big fans of the ENVE carbon cockpit. Their bars, stem and seatpost make regular appearances on our builds, and for good reason. Strength and comfort are balanced beautifully, and weight is sensibly light without introducing any compromises. Plus the build quality and finish really are second to none.
The new Aero Road stem takes this strong heritage and adds an extra dash of performance. Our bike fitters in particular are very pleased to see this - not only does it enable a more aero position where required, but there's also a useful amount of built-in adjustability with the angle shim system.
The stem is built for a negative drop only (it can't be reversed to give a positive rise), but that's not what this stem is all about. It's for getting into the most aero position possible, and is ideally paired with aero road bars. With -12 degree drop as standard, the supplied shims allow adjustment between -7 and -17 degrees. Lengths available are 100, 110, 120, 130 or 140mm.
