POINT ONE RACING
With all the stuff that comes through our door it does take something pretty special to get everyone gathered round, but that’s exactly what happened when this box of jewels turned up from Point One Racing. The Split–Second stem with its integrated top cap is one of those products where you think ‘why hasn’t anyone thought of that before’. It’s exquisitely well made and just looks so clean. It also weighs in at an incredibly light 125g for the 25.4mm version, with the 31.8mm one weighing in at only a few grams more. The BoXXer direct mount version comes in a shade lighter again, even with all the bolts, and once more it’s beautifully made and available to fit both bar sizes. If neither is already light enough or pimp enough for you then Point One are also offering Ltd Edition versions of both, which come with a full supply of titanium bolts and a truly bling nickel plated finish. There’s also a new 70mm ‘all–mountain’ stem in the pipeline. In the meantime they’re also selling some of the finest and lightest headset spacers we’ve seen, including their Time–Capsule ones which again feature an integrated top cap and are designed to be used with a direct mount stem. Currently there’s no UK distributor for these products, but you can get them shipped over yourself and we don’t think it’ll be long before a UK distributor does snap them up. Definitely the best debut range of products we’ve seen in while.
Split–Second Stems: $119.00 Time Capsule: $14.00
Nano–Second Spacers: $9.00
