SHADOW ODIN TOP LOAD STEM

Working on the design of the Odin Stem with Mark Burnett, Shadow wanted it to really cater to the modern rider . Rider’s are going taller and taller with their handlebar heights so it was only appropriate to design a stem that would allow riders to sustain this taller handlebar preference. Mark Burnett also added to the design by requesting a shorter overall reach. Not only catering to his preference, this allows the stem to be much shorter and stout. Creating an overall stronger design. Taking these two details and encompassing them into a 11.5oz stem, we are confident that we are on the forefront of modern BMX feel and ride quality.
