Latin for stronghold and bridge, ARX is our new design for the perfect connection between fork and handlebar. In particular, we have optimized the design of the clamps. Steerers and handlebars are now usually made of composite materials, and can easily be compromised by poor clamp design. To assure the integrity of the ARX clamp interface, we perform our own tests that go way beyond the demands of CEN standards. We even tested this new stem’s compatibility with other brands of handlebars and it passed with flying colors. ARX TEAM is made of Al 7075 T6, with the grain structure aligned for optimal strength. A titanium bolt package brings the weight down to 120 g. In addition to the usual reversible 6-degree fitment, ARX TEAM is available in a 17-degree variant for a really aggressive, low riding position.
