Nitto's Pearl quill stem is the 26.0mm version of the definitive Keirin stem from Japan. Beautiful to behold with a lustrous deep satin finish, it is also mechanically impeccable with its forged strength and its secure clamping pinch bolt engaging with a faired bolt rather than the aluminium of the stem itself.
The only criticism is it might be too low for some, if this is you, Nitto offer a great range of stems to get those bars nice and high.
The shortest two stems (60mm and 70mm) are the Nitto Pearl SX stem - same stem, shorter reach, For reasons unknown to ourselves some versions are stamped 'Pearl x' in fancy letters and others are simply stamped 'NITTO' instead - if you need to know before purchasing just ask!
