The Good: great bang for the buck
The Bad: no adjustability in length or riseOverall Review: Kore stems may not have the exotic looks or fancy name brand that will get kids drooling over it in the parking lot. The design of their Torsion Direct Mount stem is simple and the quality is apparent when you handle it and bolt it onto the upper crown of your fork. A good stem does its job dutifully and without a lot of attention. You could easily pay twice as much for another stem that does the same job.Some direct mount stems allow for multiple lengths or the ability to flip flop for different rise options. Kore's torsion direct mount stem offers no adjustability and so you want to make sure that the length and rise are Read More »
The Good: Legit! This is such a light weight stem its ridiculous! It's strong at I think about 90 grams. I like the length of it. Mine is 110mm but they offer 90, 100, and 120 as well. Also loaded backs it up with lifetime warranty
The Bad: I love carbon so nothing bothers me!!!Overall Review: If your goal is to lighten up your bike, this is the stem to go with! It's been on my race bike along with their other carbon products. For carbon, I think it's priced fairly as well. With a lifetime warranty, nothing to fear. This stem is worth every penny!
The Good: Has a sweet design, they're strong, easy to install, light weight, sturdy. Love the color options as well.
The Bad: Can't complainOverall Review: If you're looking to get a direct mount, this is by far one of the best ones out there. Compared to other brands, I've found that they're reasonably priced for the quality you get. I've been running mine for a while now and it's held up strong. The little design is pretty cool as well.
The Good: It's perfect for Dh or trail since I like running my bars wide. It's strong and I really appreciate the flat bar since I can get lower to my bike. Loaded has a lot of colors which is cool if your into colorful bikes. It's affordable which really helps the bank
The Bad: No complaintsOverall Review: I run these bars on my DH rig and dirt jumper as well. I really like having flat bars so they've worked for me. They seem to be a lot stronger than other bars since I've ran a couple of other brands but switched over to loaded's since I needed some gold ones. Really love them so far.
The Good: Grip and fast rolling
The Bad: scoops sandOverall Review: I got the 26 2.35 Magi X for front and Gum X for rear.At first, i thought this is a heavy pair of tyres. Almost 2KG as per the weight indicated by the packaging. Magi- X really feels sticky and the Gum-X somewhat sticky in texture.Took it for a ride yesterday and I'm really impressed. If was rolling fast and grippy on the trail. Never had been confident using my last tyres. The traction is great. I felt more control over my bike.The only thing that annoyed me was the sand that gets scooped up. Well, too much grip i'd say but I can live with it.
