Extralite has been manufacturing elite components for the cycling world since their beginning in 1995. Based out of Lodi, Italy, Extralite has been crafting a name for themselves by designing and producing some remarkably lightweight components, staying true to the name. Each component produced by Extralite is not only incredibly light, but also is subject to rigorous testing to ensure safety and ultimate durability. Many of their components pass the strenuous EN safety standard with flying colors.
The Hyperstem is no exception by any means. Tested well beyond the EN safety standard, Extralite is confident that the Hyperstem be used in any riding application, up to enduro. 3D CNC machined from a solid piece of 7075 Txx aluminum, resulting in extreme rigidity. The overall stiffness assists in the conservation of expended energy through the handlebars, which becomes important in sprints and climbs. Equipped with grade 5 titanium hardware to shave as much weight off the already trim design as possible, the Hyperstem is an ideal option for the rider conserned with overall build weight. Easy to install with your current bar setup without unraveling any bar tape, the Hyperstem uses a simple 2 piece, 4 bolt faceplate design and is compatible with all 31.8 mm clamp diameter bars.
