Thomson Elite X4 Stem

The design team for the new Thomson 31.8 stems had a tough goal: make a stem better than the Thomson Elite Road and Mountain Stems. That was a tall order, given the popularity of the Elite models. They’ve done it, though - the new X4 is stronger AND lighter than before. It’s designed around the 31.8mm bar standard for increased stiffness and strength. The X4 incorporates a new steerer clamp design that shaves 20 grams, and of course, the beautiful design and machine work that have made Thomson famous, with a knee-friendly clamp and no welds to break. OK for use with carbon bars (always follow the mfrs. torque specs).
  • 90 degrees (0 degree rise), 100 degree (10 degree rise)

  • 7000-series aluminum
  • Steerer clamp: 1 1/8

Rock solid
Was running a Ritchey stem with King headset and Niner carbon rigid fork. Had consistent problems with stem loosening on the carbon fork resulting in loose headset. Changed out to the Thompson and haven't had to tighten it since...

Great stem
This stem has a simple, strong, functional design. The machine work is beautiful, my only gripe is the glossy black finish. I got this stem in 70mm.

I have been using the X4 for about 4 years now and I am still on the same one. It still looks and feels great. The finish is nice and clean. Thomson is like Chris King...you get what you pay for.

I added this stem to my bike and have been stoked since. It looks great and is incredibly light. Easy to install and looks great with YAWYD on top to finish it off.

Worth every penny,
This stem will not disappoint! I have owned multiple products from Thompson and all with one exception have been rock solid. That piece was sent back to Thompson and they warrentied it with no questions asked. A great company and American made. This stem will securely hold your bar and not let go. Great attention to design and construction. Buy Thompson and have piece of mind on the trail.
