EASTON HAVOC STEM
CNC’d from a solid block of aluminium, the Havoc stem from Easton is not only one of the best looking stems on the market but also one of the strongest. The smooth rounded edges and graphics on the Havoc give the stem an air of class that makes it almost rival Thomson’s offering in the look stakes.
However, the most impressive part of the stem is its strength which makes it the ideal option for downhill or aggressive trail riders. Some of this strength is achieved thanks to its ‘Top Lock Technology’ faceplate interface, which in English means the face-plate clamps around the bars and you tighten the top two bolts first to clamp flush with the stem body, then the bottom two, so your bars aren’t subjected to uneven clamping forces. Either way, the stem looks great, is super strong and won’t be causing any creaks.
