This integrated design helps to keep the front end low, keeps things stiff, removes the need to check 4 stem/crown bolts and helps keep the steering pointing straight. With over an hour of machining to create the finished piece, Hope has integrated the stem into the crown creating a very nice clean look to it. It comes standard with custom Ti hardware to save weight as well. Hope claims the Fox40 Stem/Crown weighs in at 302g.
