3T stems have been on Pro bikes for decades. They were a staple on Excel Sports Boulder build kits many years ago. Last year, 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.
The ARX Team Stems feature a clamp design specifically geared toward performing well with composite steerers and handlebars. The ARX Team stem is made of 7075 T6 aluminum with the grain structure aligned for maximum strength. 3T provides a titanium bolt package to reduce weight and offers the stem in a aggressive, low -17 degree as well as the more common 6 degree. The ARX team stem has the Italian pedigree and the latest technology to perform well on any bike.
