Tibia is a total re-think of the stem, that humble but critical connection from the steerer to the handlebar. Tibia sets a new benchmark in carbon fabrication: an ideal choice of fiber, following the natural principle of least tension differences, makes the stem super-stiff yet forgiving to ride, with excellent damping to soak up road buzz.
Extremely lightweight at less than 80 g, and with a streamlined shape inspired by natural forms, Tibia provides an optimal aerodynamic connection between the handlebar and the wheel. New clamping hardware in Ti and aluminum ensures that the carbon fibers run end-to-end without being severed by bolt piercings. Also the faceplate is made of carbon with high sophisticated very small structural elements.
The high quality of the carbon fabrication needs only buffing to a satin polish, a finish that eliminates a clearcoat and saves a few grams.
