We’re celebrating today with the news that the FUNN Equalizer Stem has been awarded a prestigious Design & Innovation Award in the Off-Road Components category.
A kind of ‘Oscars for the Bike Industry’, the D&I Awards highlight the stand-out products of the year with recognition going to the most innovative, important and exciting products in cycling.
The Equalizer is our high-tech, high-spec mountain bike stem that’s designed for enduro and trail riding. The D&I judges praised its innovative approach, clean design and the usefulness it offers to riders looking for more options with their setup.
Already a huge commercial success and praised by the media, the D&I award adds another trophy to the Equalizer’s already packed cabinet.
The Design & Innovation Award team said this about the Equalizer:
“FUNN’s Equalizer stem provides a clever tuning option for your bike cockpit without changing the reach and at the same time provides cleaner cockpits with less spacers.
The special stem provides 10 mm rise in its normal position, but flip it over and it lowers the bars by 10 mm. This additional way to optimise your riding position will offer bikers who have been limited in their choice of fitting models to make more bike options suitable to them.
That’s only underlined by the numerous versions of the stem in different lengths and bar diameters. The handlebar clamps are screwed so that they only need to be tightened on one side with the appropriate torque.
In addition, helpful laser markings, as well as the easy adjustability of the part all make it very user friendly.
The high-quality finishing of the CNC machined stem rounds off the package and makes the Equalizer stem the best option for fit-constrained bikers.”
