Light Stem, great looks and sturdy enough for some heavier riding if necessary. I mostly ride XC/Trail but I think this stem could handle all mountain as well.
Shorter reach than oem model made the bike much more comfortable. Lighter than oem and feels much stiffer
This is a gorgeous piece of engineering, excellent piece of CNC for our bikes
This stem is absolutely beautifully machined to the last detail. The fit and finish is excellent.
Britain at its best! Quality product provided by a quality company
This is one of the few stems I could find in 50mm with a good degree of rise but without looking terrible. It's up to the usual Hope bombproof quality and looks pretty good fitted. Merlin Cycles were the only shop that had this ready in stock too! Gave it 4 stars because I would have preferred it in plain black.
Brilliant service yet again from Merlin. Excellent Hope stem too, real stiff and no flex, real peace of mind when giving it large.
Excellent stem. Beautifully machined, stiff and reasonably light. Real bonus is the 25 degree rise option, not many high quality stems have that these days, if any.
Amazing stem, fantastic quality, lightweight yet super strong.
Well made, strong yet lightweight - a British classic
