Sixpack Racing, component manufacturers from Southern Germany have released a new stem for Downhill and Freeride disciplines. The Millenium stem features a freeride-friendly 0° rise, and is available in both 35mm and 31.8mm clamp diameters to fit all common aluminium and carbon bar setups. The CNC-Machined stem is a neat construction, with a black anodized body and a racing grey one-piece headplate. We have the details.
Millenium Sixpack Stem
The Sixpack Millenium is a CNC-machined stem, made from 6061-T6 aluminum. Aimed at Freeride and Downhill MTB disciplines, the Millenium stem is only available in 35mm and 45mm reach options.
Sixpack Racing state a claimed weight of 128g for the 35mm reach, 35mm clamp version. The Sixpack Millenium isn’t the lightest stem on the market, nor it is the heaviest. But, in the world of freeride and downhill, weight is of little consequence. Strength is much higher on the list of priorities.
Sixpack tests its components in conjunction with EFBE-Prüftechnik. This means that the Sixpack Millenium stem has been tested on the most modern machines with the latest and toughest standards of the industry.
The Millenium stem excelled in category 5 testing, or “Parts for extreme riding”. This category is the highest class a bicycle component can reach. It translates to intended applications that include Downhill trails, bike parks, jumps and drops higher than 122cm (48“) – for a normal bike or an E-bike.
Pricing & Availability
The Millenium Sixpack stem is available now, retailing at $109.50/€109,50 in select bike shops and direct from Sixpack Racing.
