Super short and super strong.
"Wider is better" serves as the mountain bike mantra of late for handlebars. And, although they provide control and exceptional leverage, they also create torque, especially if used with a standard stem. Syntace's Megaforce2 Stem is the shortest stem available on the market designed specifically for the widest bars.
The Megaforce2 is forged from a high strength aluminum alloy, which helps to increase strength while reducing weight. Additionally, titanium bolts help to keep weight at a minimum. The stem wears a low profile above the headset, and it is greater in width than height at 36mm x 42mm. This wider cross section allows reduction of swaying tendency. The faceplate is two individual pieces affixed with four bolts. It is clamped to the steerer tube with two deep-set bolts. The stem features a +/- 6-degree stem angle, which is ideal for reduced steerer tube length geometries.
The Syntace Megaforce2 Stem is available in lengths ranging from 30mm to 80mm, in 10 degree increments. It comes in Black.
