5th Axis, a self-described world leader in manufacturing complex components for the aerospace and medical industries, has created a new bicycle componentry division, 5 Dev. The brand are already selling some seriously wild-looking 7075 aluminium MTB and eMTB cranksets, as well as a 6061-T6 alloy flat pedal for enduro, but the most exciting component is still to come. January 1st will see the release of a limited production run of the 5 Dev Titanium Stem, weighing a claimed 110g… 5 Dev Ti Stem

That 110g claimed weight is for a 35mm diameter clamp 32mm reach stem. In addition to the careful, artful machining that shaves grams from non-load bearing locations, the pinch clamp design of this titanium stem is a major factor that has allowed 5 Dev to keep the weight down. As a result, the maximum bar rise it can accommodate is 30mm. From what we can gather from the 5 Dev Instagram account, the brand do have a more traditional 4-bolt design in the works that will take higher rise bars. Though, that one is unlikely to be machined from Titanium due to the weight. It looks like the 5 Dev Ti Stem will be launched as that 35mm clamp 32mm reach model initially, but i’m sure we’ll see a 31.8mm design from them in the not too distant future. In the meantime, take a look at this fresh drop on their YouTube channel, where Chris Taylor, co-founder of 5th Axis, takes us through some of the […]
