The Stafast is an innovative new suspension stem systems that, instead of relying on a metal spring like its predecessors, uses a highly adjustable air shock and dampener mechanism. This setup allows cyclists to tune the dampening and rebound of the stem.

This system's shock is attached to the stem towards the bottom of the stem. The handlebar also rotates when the stem travels, which is quite unlike the straight-line movement that is seen on older bicycles.

Ultimately, the big advantage of the Stafast handlebar stem system is that it come of great use to cyclists who embark on lots of rough, mixed-terrain rides and bumpy gravel adventures. If you're the type of cyclist who does more than simply ride the urban streets, the Stafast accessory may just be of use to you.
