    Bit pointless buying the expensive one and then complaining it’s too expensive – the cheaper variant has exactly the same damping, but just weighs a few grams more…

    They are excellent though.

    Has it been 10 years already?

    Someone seems to invent the suspension stem once a decade and then it instantly fades away, only to be unearthed and brought to market by some intrepid soul years later.

    It’s the circle of life.

    This isn’t new. The redshift stem has been around a good few years. Even this lightweight one has been around a while.

    Agree with Footflaps – they are good if you can handle a small weight penalty.

    “Subspension”…. Sub-suspension, flex, microsus, wangers and twangers… softail, soft nose and softies are a future.

    Got the older, original, heavier non-‘Pro’ one back in 2019 and love it –  it’s unassumingly just there and I haven’t had arm pump in ages (maybe because of it or not). The increased comfort for me trumps any weight penalty it may incur.

    Also, it was Han who said the quote about the party afaik …

    You are spot on……my apologies. I shall hang my head in shame.

    That didn’t take long…..apart from the general consensus it’s a 90s MTB, well done 👍

    Just out of interest do you assume all reviews imply that the product is a new invention?

    Back to the stem…

    I’m interested in one of these after having a go on a Spesh Diverge. Do you get used to the bars rotating forward (mainly in the hoods whilst off road)?

    I’ve got a Redshift stem on my Topstone, and bar rotation was a concern of mine.

    I can honestly say I’ve never noticed it at all, whether on the drops or the hoods.

    I noticed it very slightly at first, but nowhere near enough to bother me.

    I like mine a lot. I have one of those Ergon slightly bendy seatposts as well so I claim that my gravel bike is a full-sus.

    It is one of those things that you probably consider when you are contemplating buying one but for me at least, it is a complete non issue. I never considered it until you raised it here.

    ive had one on my hook extc for a few yrs. got it 25% off on Black Friday. it’s the “heavy” non pro version and its been great. just takes the sting out a bit and takes the edge off. you don’t notice the weight or any rotation. I do get a bit of judder on really heavy braking but perhaps my elastomer is too soft. not a major issue though. its pretty much fit and forget, it looks like a normal stem and nobody who doesn’t know it’s there ever notices it.
