Loaded Precision designed this stem with one goal in mind... to manufacture the Lightest Mountain Bike Stem in the Industry. We started with a block of T6 7075 alloy, which was forged and then machined to create this masterpiece for 2012 - the Xlite Titanium Stem is Road Bike light, but Mountain Bike strong! Offered in several different lengths, this stem will offer the rider the absolute best in quality, durability, and weight.
T6 7075 aluminum is the lightest aluminum alloy for a stem application. We have included Titanium hardware for both the carbon faceplate and the steer clamp, just to ensure we produced the lightest stem on the market. Titanium bolts not only save weight, they also inhibit rust and corrosion.
The Xlite Titanium stem is available in a variety of lengths, and can be installed at either a positive or negative 5° rise. Anodized, laser etched, and crafted from our passion for the modern bicycle- this stem is at Road Bike light, but Mountain bike bred!
