ENVE Stem $265.00
We always raise an eyebrow when we hear that a stem can be used for either road and mountain, but it would appear that the Enve Stem has managed to pull it off with elegance. With a design so beautiful that it warrants white gloves for handling, the Enve Stem is durable enough for dirt and light enough for asphalt. The perfect accompaniment to any Enve handlebar, the Enve Stem is the only stem Enve makes, because it does it all.
The Enve Stem would win in a beauty pageant any day of the week, but if it doesn't offer amazing ride quality, the whole design might as well be papier-mache. Don't worry; the Enve Stem performs as well as it looks. At a svelte 120g, the Stem is feather-light and enticingly rigid. Wait—a rigid carbon stem? Yes. With molded-in threads, a cold-forged, four-bolt alloy face plate, and titanium hardware, the Enve Stem behaves like an alloy stem, but with all of the weight advantages and vibration absorption of carbon.
The Enve Stem is available six lengths from 75mm to 130mm. The stem is available in the color Black, and features a 31.8mm clamp diameter. This stem is only compatible with 1-1/8in steerer tubes, and has a 6 degree positive rise.

Awesome Stem, Great Finish
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this stem to pair with my Enve Handlebar, and both have proven to be great purchases. The finish on the stem is immaculate, and has a beautifully understated look to it. The clamping area of the stem affords a snug fit for the Enve bar, but not so tight that it mars the paint. It is as stiff a stem as I will ever need, and respectably light.
The stem looks like a negative rise but...
The stem looks like a negative rise but the description says positive. Please confirm.
You can run the ENVE Stem with a 6 degree positive or negative rise. The graphics will look the same either way.
