With the Relief Stem, Kink has chosen to get rid of the traditional pinch bolts holding the stem to the steerer tube of the forks. Instead, it tightens onto the forks using an internal wedge. This clever design has allowed Kink to produce a super lightweight stem that sits flush with your forks, saving your knees.
The Relief stem has a dual cap design with 6mm hollow bolts and a 53mm reach. As you tighten the bolts the caps compress the bars into the stem and the internal wedge is compressed into the steerer tube of your forks. This design sheds unnecessary weight and negates the need for pinch bolts on the back of the stem. Therefore the stem can sit more flush with the forks keeping it out of the way of your knees!
