Apex MTB Stem
This all-new Renthal Apex stem covers all sectors of mountain bike. Light enough for XC racing, stiff and strong enough for a 780mm handlebar.
The Renthal Apex stem features our unique new clamping system. This allows much of the stem body material to be removed, whilst retaining the strength and stiffness demanded by modern, wide handlebars. The clamps are inserted over the small diameter section of the handlebar and slid into the centre, giving a 240deg wrap of the handlebar.
The Renthal Apex construction comprises a fully CNC machined 2014 aluminium body and 7075 aluminium clamps. An oversize centre bore, extensive 3-D machining and external webbing maximise structural strength and stiffness and minimise weight.
The Renthal Apex is CNC machined from a solid billet of 2014 aluminium with 7075 aluminium clamps. These materials were specifically chosen for this application, to give the highest strength to weight ratio.
240° Clamp Design
The clamps are inserted over the small diameter section of the handlebar and slid into the centre, giving a 240 degree wrap of the handlebar.
Oversize Centre Bore
The unique handlebar clamping system opens up the front of the stem, allowing an oversize centre bore, to increase stiffness and strength.
Extensive 3D machining and external webbing increase the torsional stiffness of the stem, whilst keeping weight to a minimum.
