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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by runaway64 Diseño fantástico, ingeniería de precisión
Montaje sencillo, el apriete necesario es muy bajo, Acabado y calidad excepcionales.
Instrucciones detalladas y claras.
Buena presentación con la funda textil para protegerla durante el envío e instrucciones impresas en papel.
La calidad de la marca se aprecia incluso en esos detalles.
Par de apriete de cada rosca pintado sobre la potencia, para no tener que recurrir siempre al manual de instrucciones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chevo Looks great, performs great
Can't fault this stem, combined with the carbon bars it's transformed my ride and offers far greater control and stiffness, nice n light too.

Very solid, nothing but quality. I trust this stem way more than the stock one that came with my bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Farqus Great bit of kit
Coupled to a set of Easton Monkeylite bars, this stem works well, with minimum flex and looks the business. I have the 80 mm on a Orange 5 Pro which works well for me
