PNW Components out of Seattle are set on the idea of making well thought out mountain bike parts more attainable by keeping costs manageable. That had been pretty much exclusively limited to dropper seatposts. Until now with the Range enduro stem, PNW is offering an affordable short 31.8 stem that integrates an adjustable out-front style GoPro or Garmin mount so you can mount those key electronics front & center.
Range enduro stem with integrated GoPro or Garmin mount
The Range stem is a pretty standard 3D forged aluminum mountain bike stem with a four-bolt, one-piece removable faceplate. But in the window of that faceplate is an offset so you can clamp one of two accessory mounts – for the standard two-tab GoPro mount or a 1/4 turn Garmin mount.
Available in 35mm (153g) or 45mm lengths for a 1.125″ steerer and 31.8mm handlebar, the trail stem sells for $89 with the GoPro mount or $94 with the Garmin mount.
We haven’t seen the Garmin version yet, but the GoPro one uses a short tab that can be positioned up or down in the faceplate window to give you more flexibility to the setup while sticking with a short offset for a stiff mount and stable footage. Presumably the Garmin version will work in the same manner, allowing you to dial in the angle of your screen.
Both versions seem to be available now, direct from PNW.
