The new Thomson X4 for Mountain and Road allow you to realize the benefits of stiffer forks and stiffer 31.8 bars. They offer precise steering, tracking, and more control while riding, all wrapped up in a beautiful design. The Thomson X4 is stronger and 30 grams lighter than the Thomson Elite 25.4 mountain stem.
It features a traditional steerer clamp that is shaped to save weight and to be knee friendly. Light enough for Cross Country or Road is only part of the story. The X4 is absolutely the best combination of strength and weight available. Thomson stems are the strongest in the industry, meaning freeride and downhill riders can run Thomson confidently.
Thomson Elite X4 MTB Stem Features:
0-10 degree rise
Weight Range: 145 – 185 grams (approx) dependent on length
Stack height: 40mm

Rated 4 out of 5 by DMOS So good I have 3 of them...
A fantastic machined stem for off road bikes. I've never managed to break one despite poor handling at the best of times, and my #250+ weight. They take care of carbon bars far better than my brake and shift levers have - no scars from the clamp.
If you want to use this with a standard Garmin "quarter turn" GPS mount, the 70mm is as short as you can go. Any shorter and you'll need to mount it to the bar or use an "out front" or stem cap mount.
The new bolts they use to grip the steerer tube are tiny 3mm affairs. I miss the old 5mm as that allen key is always with me, but realistically I've never had to touch them after the initial setup.
If you are worried about how it will look in years, my oldest one has not had the anodizing or logos show any wear at all. Most impressive!

Installed this on my Titus 29er, Reba Solo forks. The front is really light, having the longer length allows me to bear my weight forward if I need to

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gregor01 Just brilliant!
I managed to pick this up relatively cheaply in a 70mm / no rise / black / 1 1/8th size. So far no issues are to be seen. It is very light - almost as light as my Easton Mg60 100mm stem which was more than 2x the price. The alen screws hold the stem tight to the steerer with no slip or any fuss and secure neatly onto the bar with around 5NM of force per screw.
It not only works well but looks the part too. It's an all-round great stem.
It also comes in a draw-string bag instead of a box which is kind of strange.
