New Burgtec MK3 Stem
27 Jun 2020
The Macclesfield-based company, Burgtec, have released the new MK3 stem.
Enduro has evolved ever closer to Downhill. The Enduro MK3 Stem is all you need for hitting the trails with wing suit type accuracy. This Stem was born out of rider’s demands for precision and for those moments when you have to be inch-perfect.
The Burgtec Enduro MK3 35mm Stem was born out of rider’s demands for precision and for those moments when you have to be inch-perfect. Taking design elements from Burgtec’s World Cup-winning Direct Mount MK3 Stem and splicing these with the critically acclaimed Enduro MK2 Stem.
Burgtec developed the Stem specifically with Pro’s and Bro’s alike. It was obvious we all live for the same challenge of pushing our own limits. As riders, we want a Stem that inspires confidence to change lines through the middle of a rock garden like it’s no big deal or slap the inside of a turn and translate all your weight to front-wheel traction. Providing ear to ear grins and saying to your mates at the bottom of a trail, “Did you see that?”.
From the start of the design process, it became clear that Burgtec wanted extra rigidity. To yield this, they would need to make the Stem using a forging process – a new thing for us. The result of which allowed them to achieve a more intricate shape than machining alone. It involves applying a huge amount of force to redirect the grain flow of the material. As a result, this gives superior strength, fatigue and impact resistance.
Another area where Burgtec made a significant improvement in rigidity was by increasing the clamping surface area on the steerer tube. They’ve vastly increased this to give a stout, rock-solid feel and as close to the MK3 Direct Mount Stem as they could. Furthermore, everything is held securely by stainless steel bolts to ensure there is no rust even in the grimmest weather. In addition and like every Burgtec product, it’s fully CNC machined and anodized in all your favourite flavours.
Tested with the world’s fastest jibbers and sendiest racers, this stem has everything you need to hit all those rowdy racing lines or pull that little bit harder off that big sender.
