If you're a regular visitor to our Build Gallery you'll already
know that the ENVE carbon stem is one of our all-time favourites, a
regular appearance on Bespoke builds.
There's a good reason for this; it's probably the best
performing, most versatile stem on the market. Legendarily
bombproof construction that makes the most of carbon's strength and
shock absorption whilst remaining sensibly light weight.
A cold-forged aluminium faceplate is designed to provide maximum
grip on the bars, and the titanium mounting hardware is super
strong and light.
Building a stem is a balancing act - you want it to be laterally
stiff and resistant to twisting in order to provide maximum control
and stability. But ideally it will also provide some degree of
vibration reduction, to minimise fatigue. ENVE have carefully tuned
the layup of the 100% uni-directional carbon fibre to ensure that
this stem achieves both goals without compromise.
The end result is a stem that can happily be used for road,
gravel/adventure and cyclocross, giving a precise level of feedback
and unrivalled comfort for long days in the saddle. It's a truly
"tried and tested" stem with a long heritage.
This is also a true 'goes with anything' stem, that looks
equally at home on carbon, Ti or steel frames (we think it's
particularly suited to titanium frames, both in looks and in how it
complements the handling).
This latest generation have changed from the old white logos to
black, so their understated looks are even more versatile.
