Product Description

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.

Strengths:    Very clean look. Beautiful finish.

Weaknesses:    Price.

Bottom Line:   
In an effort to take my MTB build over the top I installed this ENVE stem. There really isn't much to say about stems. This one is certainly as stiff as a Thomson. Installation requires a torque wrench. Even though this is sold as a road stem mine has been perfectly suited to XC riding. Nice light stem that looks great. Of course, price is a significant barrier to most but I feel I have a good value for the money invested. I shudder to think what this would cost if it was actually manufactured in the USA rather than overseas.

Devinci Atlas Carbon?

Any of you guys have seat time on one of the new Devinci Atlas Carbon 29ers? I am very interested in one and can’t find many review on them. I have ridden and owned a few similar bikes but never one with similar geo to it. From the geo numbers the head angle and seat tube seem steep, wheelbase shor ... Read More »

Mach 4 Carbon weights, costs and other questions...

Anyone do a calculation on the weight of a size M with the XO, XT Pro, or XT builds advertised on the website? Also, any idea on the MSRP? One other tidbit, any ideas on ditching the Fox fork for a Lefty? I run a shimmed Lefty 130 PBR on my alloy 429 and love it.Read More »
