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.
The Hyperstem is no exception by any means. Tested well beyond the EN safety standard, Extralite is confident that the Hyperstem can be used in a wide range of applications, including road and cross country, and up to enduro. Each stem is expertly machined in 3D CNC from a solid block of 7075 Txx aluminum, resulting in the best possible stiffness-to-weight ratios. As the connector between the handlebars and fork, the Hyperstem's overall stiffness plays an essential role in conserving expended energy from the rider's upper body, through the handlebars, and into the main frame of the bicycle. This is especially important to consider in sprints and climbs - often the deciding factor in competition.
The Hyperstem combines minimalist machine work and grade 5 titanium hardware in and expert design in order to shave as much weight off and already lightweight bicycle component. The Hyperstem is an ideal option for the rider concerned 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 and 1-1/8" steerer tubes. A T20 torx wrench is required for installation.
