The Philly Bike Expo 2022 is right around the corner! And with the show’s commitment to “Artesians. Activists. Alternatives”. I thought I would share a product launch from one of the exhibitors at this year’s Philly Bike Expo, Cirrus Cycles. This new product will help cyclists of all types enjoy the same patented Active Suspension System as Cirrus Cycles’ previous Kinekt Suspension stem that we covered a little bit ago.
The new Kinect Comfort+ 50-Degree Rise Stem is a stem that was designed to combat arm, wrist, and shoulder discomfort. Cirrus says it’s adjustable, compact, and built to last. This new stem will be priced at the same price as the original – even though it goes higher.
How much higher? Cirrus Cycles listened to the dealers and customers and added 1″ of additional rise to The Comfort+ Stem. The extra 1″ will provide a more comfy, upright riding position.
According to Cirrus Cycles, the patented “Active Suspension System” offers a full 20mm of true “up and down” travel, so as not to change your riding position upon braking. The travel will surely help with road and light trail vibrations, which Cirrus says will help cyclists to have more control which in turn will inspire confidence.
The 1″ higher rise lifts your torso, neck, and shoulders, putting the rider in a very upright position. Cirrus says that doing this will help reduce stress, neck strain, numbness, and other discomforts as well as improve visibility, keeping you in the saddle longer.
Even Wert, Cirrus Cycles General manager and Director of Sales/Marketing says they are “thrilled to offer this new stem for cyclists who want or need a more upright riding position.” He continues, “We believe older cyclists. people who have had injuries or anyone who simply wants a more comfortable and confident ride will benefit from this new stem.”
The handlebar clamp area is 31.8mm, the stem is for 1 1/8″ threadless steerers. If your bike has a quill stem, you can buy a Threadless Quill Stem adapter to use this stem.
Retail is the same as their regular rise suspension stem at $189
