Yes the stem arrived neatly packaged in a very short time.I am extremely pleased with how it lookes,unfortunately I have been unable to test it due to illnees although I will say that the stem looks the buisness on my Merckx E.M.X 1, can't wait to try it out. Ian Boushear. Hereford UK.
I have been riding on UK roads for the past 30 years, I don't know about you but I find them very bumpy and uncomfortable. I thought I would give this a try, and at £140 I hoped it would make a big difference. Well for anyone with the same issues as me, I thought this was a game changer. You don't realise it is doing its job, but my fingers weren't tingling anymore off the bike and my neck wasn't do stiff.
A definite from me, and great customer service from Kit Radar. Very fast and packaged well.

The information given below is a shorter version of our comprehensive Redshift Sports shockstop stem review and FAQ
The stem has been designed to reduce vibration through a clever elastomer suspension system. As with all suspension systems, a bike fit may be the best solution to your ailments, but this suspension stem is your best mechanical solution. The Shockstop aims to improve:
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.
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.
