Redshift Sports ShockStop Absorbing Bike Stem
: In stock
An adjustable-stiffness suspension stem that smooths out your ride; perfect for performance cyclists, recreational riders, and commuters.
What are the ShockStop stem features?
- Comfort - Reduce shock and vibration transferred to your hands and wrists.
- Ride faster and at the same energy level over rough, uneven roads.
- Energy - Your body absorbs less shock, saving energy and less fatigue.
- Control - Focus on the road instead of dodging bumps and cracks.
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?
- Sizes: 90mm-120mm in +/-6-degree and 30-degree
- Suspension: single-pivot with a set of swappable elastomers, each of a different stiffness so you can dial in the perfect ride, and that everyone from performance cyclists to recreational riders and commuters can find the perfect fit.
- Aluminum construction
- Weight: 238 grams (size 90mm)
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.
Who's behind the great invention?
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.

My experience is not done yet. The elastomers to be used experience I get too hard and do not dampen the steering wheel enough, therefore I will change them to soften so the damping gets better. Nevertheless, I feel that the attenuation feels better than offended. I am satisfied.
I have been suffering from tingling fingers on my road bike for a while now. Went for a bike fit which helped but then they suggested I try this. Really worked! It's all but gone away. Easy to install and use. Great design.
