Fast turns, sprinting or horrible rock gardens, a stiffer cockpit is necessary for fast and hard riding. But it is not done with a stiff handlebar. The handlebar itself should have some small flex for symmetrical loads to increase comfort, but one sided loads should not make the system bend. The one-piece spacer increases the stiffness further (one is included). With the current model it is not necessary to take an Intend Spacer. You can put every other spacer there without an Intend spacer as well as additional to the Intend spacer.
The Stiffmasters stack height is 14mm. For general height just add spacer height to stack height. One Intend spacer of your choice is included. Additional Stiffmaster spacers are available in our webshop. The Stiffmaster headset is a complete headset. Just swap your existing top headset with a Stiffmaster unit and you´re all set!
The stiffmaster is only available in ZS49 and ZS44. IS41/42 is not possible or planned for the future.
