Can't believe the difference

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.

What are the ShockStop stem features?

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:

  • 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 a Shockstop stem?

  • 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 bike 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 the Shockstop 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.

Redshift Shockstop Specifications

How does the shockstop 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?
