Controltech EXL A/Head MTB Stem

The EXL range is for riders who want it all – elegant form and no-nonsense function – with zero compromise. Employing unidirectional carbon fiber, finely controlled to create strength, stiffness and vibration-damping compliance at exactly the locations and angles it’s needed, EXL sheds grams everywhere else. It’s a material that wastes nothing. EXL’s stiffness ensures every single watt of your power goes where it should – down into the ground – while tuned compliance means vibration can’t come back up. Hardwearing graphics, strong and reliable hardware and aerospace-grade alloy clamp components generate rugged off-road strength at road-race weights.
