Ritchey's WCS Trail 0-Degree Stem is the right tool for the job when long travel's on your agenda. It's made from 3D Forged 2014 aluminum for exceptional weight savings and incredible strength; plus the extra wide bar clamp area adds even more strength at the junction of the stem and riser bar. Throw in the C260 clamp system that wraps around the handlebar for even more stability, and you've got a beefy, no-nonsense stem ready for the grittiest singletrack.
Stem angle is one of the factors that determines handlebar height. A listed angle of 0 degrees actually provides a rise that is dependent on your bike’s head angle (see image).
Stem length is measured along the side of the stem from the center of the steerer to the center of the handlebar clamp (see diagram). Keep in mind that as a stem provides more rise, its effective length decreases. In the example above, if the +17 degree stem measures 135mm, it actually extends 108mm parallel to the ground.
