Terra Bike Emblema 99g Stem
CNC-machined from solid aluminium, the Terra Emblema is a 40mm reach super lightweight stem for 35mm clamp bars. With steel bolts, it weighs a claimed 110g. Swap those out for titanium ones and you knock the weight down to 99.3g.
Terra Bikes say the design focused on placing material at the points of maximum stress, and removing it from areas that experience less stress, allowing them to keep the weight as low as possible. Certified according to ISO 4210-5, the Emblema stem passed all the static lateral and frontal flexion tests it was subjected to.
45mm and 35mm reach options are on the way for 35mm clamp bars. Terra Bikes are also developing a 31.8mm clamp version for gravel with 60mm and 65mm reach options.
