The new miracle-metal.
It's pretty amazing what manufacturers are able to do with aluminum these days. 180 grams used to be lightweight for a stem. Now that would be a pig. And don't think that strength has been sacrificed–these new stems are strong enough to handle anything that modern freeriders can throw at them. The Niner RDO Stem is a perfect example of intelligent design at work. Niner put the right material in the right places for a stem that weighs an incredible 115 grams–and that's the 110mm length.
A high-quality stem is a great upgrade for any bike. It takes weight off
the front end while adding safety, good looks, and, in some cases, a
correct fit. The Niner RDO stem comes in a sexy gloss black
finish with accents in four different color choices. It comes in the
four most popular sizes for XC and all-mountain riding. The
tried-and-true two-bolt steerer tube clamp and four-bolt handlebar clamp
are strong enough to be used to race motocross, but remain simple and
The Niner RDO Stem comes in gloss Black with Moondust Grey,
Tangerine, Green, or Red accents. It is available in 80mm, 90mm, 100mm,
or 110mm lengths.
