Renthal Stem Review

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

Light; Looks great; Strength

The Bad:

Pain to put on and take off; twists easily

Overall Review:

I had quite high expectations of this stem before buying it. It looks great and the attention to detail in the machining is superb. However, it really is ahassleto attach to the bike and to the handlebars due to its two piece design. This would not be a problem if you never need to remove the stem, although packaging the bike for going on holiday in a bike bag highlights that a normal stem is infinitely easier to remove from the bike.

The other downside to this stem is that it seems to twist on the steerer far too easily. Having tightened it to the suggested torque initially, I have since had to tighten it a substantial amount more and Read More »

I had quite high expectations of this stem before buying it. It looks great and the attention to detail in the machining is superb. However, it really is ahassle to attach to the bike and to the handlebars due to its two piece design. This would not be a problem if you never need to remove the stem, although packaging the bike for going on holiday in a bike bag highlights that a normal stem is infinitely easier to remove from the bike.

The other downside to this stem is that it seems to twist on the steerer far too easily. Having tightened it to the suggested torque initially, I have since had to tighten it a substantial amount more and it still appears to twist given enough force (more so than the thomson stem I run on my other bike)

On the plus side, it is nice and light. Overall though, I would not buy this product again. Instead I would stick to thomson if I was ever to be in the market for a stem again.

Renthal stem review

Rating:
The Good:

Light, stiff, design, quality

The Bad:

None after 3 years

Overall Review:

Been rocking this stem for three years now and i still have nothing bad to say about it. It is a nicely engineered two piece design with all excess material removed to bring it's weight down to 150grams with the bolts. As stiff as some other brands big blocky stems that weight 250g. It is very easy to remove and put back since you don't have to disassemble it to remove from the fork steerer. The price is a bit steep but you get the proven Renthal quality and a component that gonna follow you on more than one bike build. By the way, Thompson stems are highly overrated...
