DMR Wingbar Mk4

Now on to its fourth generation, the latest DMR Wingbar Mk4 version of DMR’s long standing Wingbar has undergone a complete facelift.

Score 10

DMR Defy 35 stem

The DMR Defy 35 stem's squat stance gives it a purposeful look suited to any trail or enduro bike. The wide clamp that locks your bar in a vice-like grip.

Score 9

Joystick Binary stem

Joystick Binary stem looks pretty similar to many stems of this type on the market but has a couple of feature that make it stand out from the crowd.

Score 8

funn crossfire stem

The Funn Crossfire stem is a stem aimed at enduro use but in reality is a stem well suited to pretty much any MTB application.

Score 9

use ultimate vyce

The USE Ultimate Vyce stem is a little different to most others on the market currently. It uses a simple expander wedge design to generate clamping forces.

Score 8

funn strippa evo

CNC machined from solid 6061 billet aluminium, the Funn Strippa Evo stem represents a solid way to clamp your bars to your bike.

Score 8

Race Face Ride stem

The Race Face Ride stem is one of those components that makes you question whether you need to spend mega bucks on parts. Coming in a shade under £25, it…

Score 9

ragley stubbing

The Ragley Stubbing stem comes in a multitude of colours, all with a two-tone finish. The smaller size doesn’t result in a below average weight.

Score 7

hope am freeride

Machined out of a solid billet of 2014 T6-series aluminium, the Hope AM Freeride stem is exactly what you’d expect from the Lancashire component giant.

Score 8

gamut cillos

Gamut is better known for chain devices, but this minimal, matt-anodised Gamut Cillos stem shows another side to the US manufacturer.

Score 8

burgtec enduro mk2

Made in the UK from 6061 T6-series aluminium, the Burgtec Enduro MK2 short stem is second-generation trail and all-mountain stem for both bar sizes.

Score 8

race face aeffect 35

The Race Face Aeffect 35 is a no-nonsense, forged and CNC finished 6061 aluminium stem at a bargain price. Winner of Best value in our stem group test.

Score 8

renthal apex

The Renthal Apex stem is available right down to 31mm in length. At 110g it’s the lightest 35mm option we've tested and that helps justify the cost.

Score 8

ks ether

KS has now added bars stems to its line-up. Designed for enduro, the KS Ether stem is light and strong enough for everything from XC to DH.

Score 9

gravity grid

There’s nothing to complain about here. The Gravity Grid stem’s price is fair, the finish is good and performance is right up there.

Score 8

chromag bza

The Chromag BZA is perfectly in keeping with aggressive riding ethic. It works great, but doesn’t provide anything over a stem that’s half the money.

Score 7

azonic rock

The design of the Azonic Rock proved stiff enough and the unusual 45mm reach may be useful. Solidity and steering response is good too.

Score 6

truvativ descendant

Not the lightest, but the Truvativ Descendant is still perfectly acceptable for trail riding and XC. The price is excellent considering the quality.

Score 9

syntace megaforce

The Megaforce 2 is mega expensive, but comes with a 10-year guarantee and, if money were no object, would be our first choice. Syntace really has ticked all the boxes.
