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. We noticed zero flex or movement and the wide front plate offers an excellent contact point with the bars. The steerer clamp has been flattened and smoothed off to allow for the odd bash with the knee and the gloss/matt finish gives it a solid thumbs-up in the looks department. Strikingly good looking and surprisingly light with great torsional stiffness sums up the Rhythm Pro nicely!Buy Stems on

His first mountain bike was a Trek 820, which he bought in 1990. It didn’t take him long to earn himself a trip to the hospital on it, and he’s never looked back since. These days he’s keeping it rubber side down, riding locally and overseas as much as possible.
