When getting after it on the trails, the last thing you want to think about is your stem. That's why Giant did all the thinking for you and came up with the Contact AM Stem. With its 3D-forged aluminum construction, it's strong enough for aggressive trail riding while being light enough to be called "all-mountain." The 5-degree rise gives you an upright posture, perfect for steep descents and better handling. A 52mm-wide faceplate gives you extra stiffness at the bar/stem interface and the steerer clamp design is rounded to spare your knees—a clever touch. This stem is compatible with Giant's OverDrive 2 1 1/4-inch fork steerers as well as standard 1 1/8-inch steerers.
