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
