The 3T Arx LTD stem is 3T's spare no expense carbon fiber stem. Unlike most other carbon stems, this is no aluminum wrapped job. The body is a monocoque piece made entirely of unidirectional carbon. 3T new they had a real winner with their Arx Team stem so instead of trying to one-up the popular aluminum model they went a different route and made the LTD stems insanely stiff. A keen observer will notice that the Arx LTD is actually a few grams heavier than the Team model, but when it comes to your cockpit, the advantages of lightweight often come at the high price of a flexy front end. The Team stem is not flexy at all, but even still the LTD is much stiffer. Similar to Pro's Cavendish stem, the LTD will increase your front end rigidity no matter what stem you were previously running. The sex appeal of the monocoque carbon fiber body is just icing on the cake. And best of all, you don't have to run a super aggressive position to enjoy the benefits.
The 3T Arx LTD stem is available in a 6 degree rise in lengths of 80, 90, 100, 110, and 120 mm.
