GTO stands for Grand Tour, Oversized. Hence, HED's GTO stem was made for demanding Pro Tour riders who want strength and stiffness for sprinting and light weight while climbing. The stem extension has an unique cross section that increases stiffness. The 4-bolt design holds your bars nice and tight, too. And let's not kid ourselves, it looks great.
Stem angle is one of the factors that determines handlebar height. A listed angle of 0 degrees actually provides a rise that is dependent on your bike’s head angle (see image).
Stem length is measured along the side of the stem from the center of the steerer to the center of the handlebar clamp (see diagram). Keep in mind that as a stem provides more rise, its effective length decreases. In the example above, if the +17 degree stem measures 135mm, it actually extends 108mm parallel to the ground.
Clamp Diameter: 31.8mm
Rise: +/- 10 degrees
