Particularly beautiful, an extraordinary strength to weigth ratio are the key features of our Barkeeper stem.
The cost extensive and highly precise production of this masterpiece includes many steps, including:
- precise forging process
- CNC machining of cristical contact interfaces
- Shot peening for surface hardening
- Laser engraving
All three available lengths (35mm, 45mm, 55mm) were successfuly tested to match and exceed the requirements for the strongest/highest possible category for mountainbike components (category 5) of DIN EN 17406:2021 and ASTM F2043-13. These tests were run with an 800mm handlebar width, which leaves plenty reserves for their intended use on “Trail” and “Enduro” bikes.
The incredible attention to detail in manufacturing and finish quality can als be seen in areas, which are not even visible, when installed. Call it nuts, but this is our striving for perfection:
The obvious one-piece design allows for an incredible high strenght-to-weigth ration, but it does cost some compatibility. Not every handlebar will be compatible to our Barkeeper stem. Although we have successfuly tested handlebars with 35mm rise, there is no guarantee for compatibility. We assume most handlebar with a rise of up to 30mm will work, but it greatly depends on the slope and shape.
You can find a list of compatible handlebars next to this description under “compatible handlebars”. We will try to update this list, so feel free to let us know, once you have successfuly installed a handlebar, which we can add. This list makes no claim to completeness or correctness and is only to be understood as a reference.
Please always follow the installation instructions that come with your stem and which you can also donwload from here.
