Yet another cosmetic option in the ever popular WCS 4-Axis family of stems from Ritchey Design. With all of the black stems on the market, the Classic offers a refreshing look in polished silver. The stem looks great with matching Classic bars or gives perfect contrast with black bars - either way it works well.
The build and construction is identical to the black WCS 4-Axis stem. It features lightweight, modern materials and design. The 3-D net forging process from 2014 alloy provides a superb strength-to-weight ratio. A specially designed forged and contoured 4-bolt faceplate offers flex-free performance and is easy to remove for service. The plate also does an excellent job at distributing pressure and stress along the clamping area of the handlebar - a must when using carbon bars. The design of the steerer tube clamp uses a different approach with the same results. The stem clamps to the steerer tube using opposing bolts and an angled slot to evenly distribute pressure on lightweight carbon steerer tubes.
The Classic 4-Axis stem is available in 84 degree rise and industry standard 31.8mm clamp diameter. Choose your size.
