Cirrus Cycles smooths bumps, reduces chatter w/ new Kinekt Suspension Stem

Tips & Reviews

Cirrus Cycles announced a new addition to their bump-absorbing product line – the Kinekt Suspension Stem. The adjustable, multi-pivot design has 20mm of parallel travel, to reduce shock that would otherwise cause wrist, hand, neck, and shoulder pain.Advertisements

The new stem was just launched via a Kickstarter campaign – one that is already fully-backed at over $41,000 of support. It’s not the first suspension stem we’ve seen, but its parallelogram design looks to eliminate bar rotation or changes in effective reach associated with single-pivot designs.

Cirrus Cycles claims a host of benefits from the stem – all resulting from a reduction in impact shock.

Since we don’t all weigh the same or ride the same, the Kinekt stem is adjustable:

“All it takes is a 2.5mm Allen wrench to swap out springs. Every Kinekt Stem comes with three spring options (soft, medium, and firm), so you can quickly tune your ride based on the terrain, your bike, and your preferred riding style.”

The main stem parts are made of 6061-T6 aluminum, along with IGUS bushings and stainless steel hardware

Four sizes will be available, all featuring 20mm of travel and a 31.8mm bar clamp diameter.

The Kickstarter campaign still has 31 days left as of this writing, if you want to get in on the action. The Kinekt Suspension Stem will sell for $180, with discounts and extra benefits available to early backers of the project.
