Although we didn’t think preorders would go live so quickly, here we are! I put together a sneak peek for the new Farr HeadSpace Stem earlier this week, and at the time we weren’t sure what the final specs and pricing would look like, but Farr has officially opened preorders for this unique, retro-inspired stem. One design feature we didn’t pick up on was its ability to replace the top clamps with their Carbon or Alloy Aero Bolt-On to create an interesting one piece structure.
Farr has also added that the stem has been tested for EN MTB standards and passed with flying colors, there is the potential for different lengths in the future, and although any handlebar that has a +70mm Flat 31.8mm section should work well with this stem—it was specifically designed to pair well with their new Supa-Moto Riser bar.
