It’s been too long since we last took a deep look into Kingdom Bike’s catalog, but their new titanium Ronin mountain bike stem reminds us to pay attention. Joining machined bits & with tiny welded tubes, the no-rise trail stem comes in both 31.8mm & 35mm clamps to fit any modern geometry mountain bike. Oh, and with Moonmen’s included shim, this would be a great match for that new ti FuelMoonRiser flask, er, handlebar…
Kingdom Ronin titanium mountain bike stem
Kingdom kicks off the new year by opening a pre-order for the new Ronin stem. But don’t fret, this isn’t some far-fetched Kickstarter scheme. The stem is in production now, and its first run will be shipping to early buyers already in the first week of March.
The 155€ titanium Ronin stem will give you a nice, stiff and compact cockpit and add a little high-performance jewelry to the front end of your bike. It comes in both polished ti for that ‘full bling’ look, or raw so you can see the colors of each weld.
The zero rise Ronin comes in two sizes – 35mm long to fit 31.8 bars, or 40mm long to fit larger diameter 35mm bars. Stack height on either stem is 38mm (shorter than the pre=production samples show by about 7mm) with opposing bolts on the steerer and a two-piece/4-bolt face plate. Claimed weight for the CNC’ed & welded tubing stem is just 139g & 140g, respectively.
A limited pre-order has just opened up for 125€ a pop direct from Kingdom to get in on the first run. Use code: IAMRONIN at checkout now to get the pre-order discount.
