Prototype Easton Direct Mount Stem - Pits Bits: 2011 Fort William World Cup - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

Team Lappiere is running some unique bars and stems from Easton. Note how wide the front clamps are on the stem, and also the increased bar diameter as it tapers towards the brake lever. The oversize bars are up to 800mm wide. The Lappiere tech guys reckon the increased diameter is what is needed with super-wide bars to increase stiffness.

    I spy proto formula brakes... maybe the evolution of last years oval piston brake?
