The ShockStop stem does what gloves and extra bar tape can't: it isolates your upper body from the imperfections of the road, letting you ride further, faster, and more comfortably.
The ShockStop dramatically improves the quality of your ride, without compromising steering responsiveness or detracting from the aesthetic of the bike. The subtle pivot design allows the front end of the bike to move up and down over bumps in the road while your hands follow a smoother path, cushioned by the elastomers inside the stem.
Reduce shock and vibrations transmitted to hands and wrists. Ride faster at the same energy level over rough, uneven roads.
Your body absorbs less shock, saving energy and reducing fatigue. Focus on the road instead of dodging bumps and cracks.
