New Simple Eject v4 PC stem

Taken from Simple's website...

"After doing massive material research we came across this High Strength Plastic, with an incredibly high molecular mass. This allows us to make a very light, yet very strong stem without compromising on the durability. We have taken this stem through a lot of testing and abuse to see how it would hold up, and so far it's proved to last very well."

oooo soon they will have plastic frames bars forks

Biggest troll.

I don't know how much it's gonna be. And I don't think I'd trust it. Even if the plastic was otherwordly strong...the other job of a stem besides not breaking is not slipping. I wonder how they'll counter that...

I think I might trust it but I'm not going to be the first one to buy it. I just seriously can't believe they came out with a plastic stem, insanity. I love how it looks though, clear and just has nice lines.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
