Our challenge with the Integra 35 stems, was to keep the strength, stiffness and durability of the larger 35mm diameter package at the same weight as the 31.8mm equivalent.
The strength, stiffness and durability were all matched to the 31.8mm equivalent, with and average of just 1.5g added to the Integra.
The new Integra 35 Direct Mount stems feature the same lightweight, 6-bolt design as the original Integra II and Renthal have improved the structure of the stem.
The Integra 35 uses the same C-shape clamping system as the Apex stem range, which has been increased in size to cope with the demands of top level DH racing. The use of two independent, C-shape handlebar clamps allows the stem body material to be reduced to a minimum, whilst maintaining an incredibly stiff and strong structure.
The ultra-wide, 64mm handlebar clamping area increases torsional rigidity and the use of just six bolts vastly reduces overall weight. In addition, the uninterupted clamp on the underside of the handlebar eliminates stress risers found on most other clamps, which can lead to handlebar failure.
The size range has also now increased to include 45mm and 50mm lengths. Both of which are available in either zero rise or +10mm rise giving you four options:
- 45 x Zero. Length 45mm. Rise zero. Bar clamp 35mm.
- 45 x +10mm. Length 45mm. Rise +10mm. Bar clamp 35mm.
- 50 x Zero. Length 50mm. Rise zero. Bar clamp 35mm.
- 50 x +10mm. Length 50mm. Rise +10mm. Bar clamp 35mm.
All of them suit Boxxer/IS.
- 45mm x Zero: 133g
- 45mm x 10mm: 156g
- 50mm x Zero: 157g
- 50mm x 10mm: 177g
