MRC Direct Mount Stem Spacer
Many drivers in downhill today swear by an increase in the front. Some use handlebars with high risers, others clamp so-called Stemspacers between fork bridge and handlebars or build tax rate spacers under the upper triple clamp. The reason for this is obvious. An increase in the front gives more safety on steep roads. It takes some pressure off the hands and makes for more relaxed runs. Fine tuning of the driving position and thus the wheel loads is possible - the cornering behavior of the bike can be positively influenced.
Such an increase is particularly useful when frames with very long reach (very large frames) are used: Under certain circumstances, the driver with a flat front would be too much on the handlebars positioned. By raising the front he stands a little more upright and thus experiences a more central driving position. The increase is also recommended for very tall drivers, who would otherwise reach a very stooping "steering position". The special feature of our Spacer, however, is that it not only increases the steering center by 12 mm, but also moves the stem forward by 10 mm: Due to the very flat steering angle on modern DH bikes, the entire unit moves with an increase in the front end behind and shortens the "working space" of the driver. If the driver uses an 8 mm thick Headset Spacer Ring in conjunction with the 12 mm Stem Spacer 12/10, he increases his front by a total of 20 mm. In conjunction with a 63 ° steering angle would increase at 20 mm increase the handlebars by 10.2 mm to the rear - the spacer compensates exactly this difference in length, the handlebar is effectively upwards.
Supplied with a spacer and 4 mounting screws for safe mounting on the triple clamp. The spacer fits on state-of-the-art direct-mount shots, such as those found on current RockShox, Fox, BOS, Marzocchi or Manitou downhill forks.
