Sampson Sports' 35mm bar and stem

DENVER, CO (BRAIN) — Sampson Sports has started production on its new 35 mm diameter CN stem and carbon bar.  

The new 35 CN stem is an oversized version of Sampson's existing Stratics 31.8 size stem, machined from a block of aluminum to eliminate welds and keep precision tolerances in the center bore and clamp. 

The new Stratics carbon 35 bar features a 35 mm center section, and tapers to a hand-friendly flat-top bar with a new short-reach, long tail design. 

There are depressions molded into the bar for seamless cable routing "without drama."  The Stratics 35  Bars will be available in 40, 42 and 44 sizes, and stems range from 80-130 mm with a +/- 6 degree rise.  A 110 cm stem and 42 cm bar combo weighs about 359 grams. MSRP for the stem: $179; MSRP for the bars is $339.  Expected delivery is January 2013.
