Bontrager Rhythm Pro Stem 50mm

In A Glance The Rhythm Pro from Bontrager boasts that it is XC light and yet all-mountain tough. It’s certainly one of the lightest stems in the test and it’s pretty stiff when you ride it too.

This jacket from Bontrager arrived a little late for our jacket test in the previous issue, and as there is still a fair bit of rain outside we thought we would get…

Cycling gear for riders who, no matter how far they ride or how fast they go, demand great performance for great value. Est 1980. When our namesake built his reputation for indestructible mountain bike frames in a NorCal garage in the 1980s, Keith Bontrager never expected to launch one of the most ubiquitous brand names in the history of cycling. Things have changed a little since we joined forces with Trek, but a lot remains the same. Our design is guided by the same founding principles; that as riders, if we can’t find what we want, we should go out and make it. Sure, the tools we use today are a little more advanced, but the goal remains the same — design it, build it, ride it, love it. Share with the world. Outdoor and sporting goods company
