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)
  • Weight: 166g (100mm)
  • 7000-series aluminum
  • Steerer clamp: 1 1/8
  • Stack Height: 40mm
  • Bar Clamp: 31.8mm

      This stem is made in the USA by real live Americans, looks amazing, and takes a beating without budging. Precision made out of solid Aluminum and basically indestructible. It'll follow you through many bikes. Buy it.

        Thomson is a name tried and tested in the MTB community. The stems are strong, feature a timeless design, and fall on the lighter end of the weight spectrum. You can't go wrong with a Thomson stem & seatpost combo.

          I was already running one of these but wanted to go a little shorter (with wider bars). The X4's are stiff, lightweight and beautifully made.

              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.

                This is the second Thomson X4 that I have purchased. One for my ALU bike and one for my new Trek Remedy. This is a great stem. It is the perfect length for me. The design is very clean. The unit is built well and looks really good too!
