The Darimo Carbon Lefty Head Tube makes possible to install any standard 1 1/8 stem in a Lefty fork.
Simply replace the original head tube by Darimo carbon fiber tube. This will allow you to install light stems with any angle / length.
The tube is valid for 1.0 and 2.0 Lefty forks, indicate the outer distance between plates to make the right tube for your frame size and type of fork.
We have a version that permits to install a Lefty fork in any tapered frame 1.5-1 1/8, please contact us.
Each head tube is laminated by hand with a layer arrangement calculated to achieve the best compromise weight / resistance. The set consists of carbon tube and anodized aluminum bushings. The lower part is not only glued, it is manufactured together with the carbon tube with CAIC technology (Carbon Aluminium In-Mould Construction).
Once the tube is installed the external head tube part has 55 mm length to install the standard 1 1/8 stem, you can use an spacer or cut the excess (reducing even more the weight).
