Thomson Elite X4 1.5-inch Stem
The design team for the new Thomson 31.8 stems had a tough goal: make a stem better than the Thomson Elite Road and Mountain Stems. Early tests showed that their competitor's 31.8 stems were heavier and weaker than Thomson Elite 25.4 and 26.0 stems. At Thomson their new stems were not done until they were stronger, lighter and longer lived than the legendary Thomson Elite.
The new Thomson X4 for Mountain and X2 for Road allow you to realize the benefits of stiffer forks and stiffer 31.8 bars. They offer precise steering, tracking, and more control while riding, all wrapped up in a beautiful design.
The X4 is absolutely the best combination of strength and weight available. Thomson stems are the strongest in the industry, meaning freeride and downhill riders can run Thomson confidently.
