Joining the compliance family, the new Cane Creek eeSilk “full compliance” suspension stem uses the same design as the original, but loses the Compliance Switch.
The first model remains in the line and has an external switch that lets you turn it on or off, effectively a lockout for your stem. This new model removes that switch for an always-working design, providing up to 20mm of travel.
It comes with multiple elastomers to let you tune its performance for your body weight, riding style, and terrain, and there’s no need to remove it or your handlebar to swap them out.
It’s designed to smooth the bumps and vibrations for your hands, arms, neck, and shoulders. Pair it with their eeSilk suspension seatpost to smooth things out in the rear, too.
Available in 80, 90, and 100 millimeter lengths, claimed weight is 219-235g, and MSRP is $199.99 and it comes only in black. It has a -6º angle and a tall 49mm stack height thanks to the elastomer’s placement under the stem body.
