3T ARX Pro Stem
The 3T ARX Pro stem is a fantastic way to get an Italian pedigree and design at a very affordable price. The T3 ARX Pro stem is engineered for composite steerers and handlebars just like the Team model, but has stainless steel hardware and is made with AL2010 so it can be offered at a budget-friendly price. 73 degree angle can be run parallel to the ground for a low position or reversed for an upright position.
3T stems have been on Pro bikes for decades. They were a staple on Excel Sports Boulder build kits many years ago. 3T decided to stage a comeback. They hired a technical director from the Ferrari F1 team and made a major investment in engineering resulting in new, improved, advanced designs. 3T reviewed every aspect of their business and it paid off with many spot-on new products some of which were used to win the Tour de France and gold medals in Beijing.

This is my 3rd 3T ARX Pro stem. It is more than a good value - it enables a reliable stiff connection suitable for hard riding on all types of road. Once properly tightened, it does not slip! It is also not that much heavier than the racer models, so for me, even with the slight increase in weight, it is still a good choice. Also, I specifically wanted SS bolts instead of Titanium, for the extra durability. I do not usually write reviews, but the incredibly prompt service from Excel (definitely 5*) made me do it.
Pros Stiff and does not slip.
Cons Only comes in one color.
