“Our new frontload stem offers a taller 16mm rise, which allows you to run your bars as high as some topload stems, without having to compromise on the clean and simple frontload look. THE WIDER 48MM FACEPLATE HELPS PROVIDES SECURE AND SAFE CLAMPING, AND THE SUNKEN SECTION ON THE TOP ALLOWS YOU TO RUN YOUR TOPCAP FLUSH WITH THE STEM. THIS IS ONE SMOOTH STEM THAT MIGHT JUST SURPRISE YOU…” – WTP
