Is it time for a new BMX Stem? Here’s a look at the new The Purge stem from United. The stem looks like your regular topload stem, but they’ve actually designed it so the front of the top plate actually touches the bottom of the stem where normally that isn’t something you want to do. They’ve done this to improve clamping and helps ensure that your bars are even. Get the full scoop from United below!
“Everyone knows that resetting your bars is the worst possible thing. It takes forever for your mind to agree that the bars feel how they did before slipping. We wanted to design a stem that clamped tight and evenly at that. We had seen stem bolts snap from a rocky plate and uneven tightening. With the PURGE stem we wanted strength and durability so we went with a fully CNC 6061 Ali block including a CNC’d United graphic on the side. You will notice the clamping system clamps completely shut up front. This is to stop the uneven tightening. Simply tighten the front bolts to lock your bars in place evenly then clamp down on the back to fully secure your bars in place.
The stem comes with a 49mm reach and a 34mm rise. Giving you the option to ditch those ugly headset spacers and tidy up the look of your bike.” – United
Color: Black or Polished.
Material: Full CNC Machined 6061 Alloy

Are you thinking about picking up a new BMX stem, but you aren’t really sure what all of those measurements really mean? Here’s a video Brant Moore put together going in-depth on the different measurements like reach, rise and stack height, along with a measurement you might not have heard of called extension. Along with that, Brant discusses some of the different features on stems like CNC machining for weight savings and cleaner looks, a wider stem for increased strength, the 1″ OD size that brands like Wethepeople, BSD and Cult have been trying out, the grooves that Flybikes offer on their stems, knurling, etc. Brant also covers solid and hollow bolts, and a few other things. This will definitely help if you are curious what you need to know when it comes to stem geometry and features. Hit play and take it all in!
“BMX stem geometry appears quite simple at first glance, and for all practical applications of stem geometry, it is as simple as it seems.
However, there is more than meets the eye and a lot to talk about in regards to BMX stems and their geometry.
Hopefully this video can help you make an educated decision the next time you’re in the market for a new stem!” – Brant Moore
