Why do I need one?
Bikes should be comfortable, but ride more than a few miles and you realize very quickly that bikes are stiff, and they transmit every little bump straight to your hands and arms. After a while those impacts and vibrations make it hard to enjoy the ride.
The ShockStop stem does what gloves and extra bar tape can't: it isolates your upper body from the imperfections of the road, letting you ride further, faster, and more comfortably.
Who has it been designed for?
ShockStop is designed from the ground up specifically for road and hybrid bikes - the suspension travel, weight, feel, and aesthetics are finely tuned to perfectly complement modern bikes and the roads we ride on.
What is available in the product range?
How does it work?
The ShockStop dramatically improves the quality of your ride, without compromising steering responsiveness or detracting from the aesthetic of the bike. The subtle pivot design allows the front end of the bike to move up and down over bumps in the road while your hands follow a smoother path, cushioned by the elastomers inside the stem.
HOW TO INSTALL SHOCKSTOP STEM
The ShockStop Stem has been invented by Redshift Sports, Philadelphia, PA, USA following a successful KickStarter campaign in 2015. This followed the previous success of the Aero system (back in 2013) and the company has continued to expand and develop its product range.
Here's a little installation video that we threw together to help you install the shockstop stem
I brought this for my husband hoping it would make his road riding more comfortable especially when doing 75-100 miles per ride. He had his left wrist plated and fused several years ago and road shock was very painful over a long distance. I can honestly say this stem really does work. It absorbed the majority of the road shock. Now he is just uncomfortable and not in severe pain.
Brilliant bit of kit. Fitted to my gravel bike and it just smooths out the ride. OK so the big hits are still felt but it takes the edge off but all the silly little annoying rough roads are just smooth...will be getting another for the fat bike.
Good clear instructions (especially if you also watch the video on the redshift site); no problems with fitting and replacing elastomers. Definitely smooths the road up front. Initially a little disconcerting how it emphasised harshness at sadlde but have got used to that now... but may look into buying the suspension seat post when it's released if it works just as well. Haven't yet tried it off-road, but deliberatly aiming at the worst of tarmac indicates that it will provide some benefit. Recommended.
Works as advertised. Shipped really fast. Highly recomended.
Really pleased with purchase, it does work. Good price too.
