Sculpting a classic.

The original 3T ARX stem quickly became a classic due its strength and versatility. Since its arrival in 2007, we’ve watched it find a place on every sort of bike, from road to mountain. The new ARX II Team Stem refines 3T’s classic design, offering sculpted sides and a sleeker faceplate.

3T’s ARX II faceplate is drawn in tighter at the top and bottom for a more ovalized appearance, while retaining the cutout 3T logo. Most notably, the new ARX II offers a more secure installation process, featuring Torx assembly at the faceplate and a single M6 bolt to clamp the stem to the fork steerer.

  • Trimmed faceplate design
  • Slightly flattened sides
  • 3T logo cutout
  • Torx assembly and M6 bolt secure stem to steerer

no nonsense and pretty

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a solid stem with looks to match. I used with wtih 3T's Ergosum and it was a very nice setup. The only thing I recall not liking about it is 3T cutout makes a 3T dirt mark on the bar.

Why Torx bolts????

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Stem looks nice and seems to function just as well as the other 3T ARX I have had (six of them), which means great.

BUT why make the stem with Torx Bolts??? This takes away from the convenience of the previous version which only required the rider to carry a 4mm hex to fix roadside. I am replacing all the bolts with Hex heads. BTW, the steerer bolt is not M6, it is M7x16. Good luck find a replacement

Hi FFT... Late answer but Zipp also uses torx fasteners for their top of the line stems (Service Course SL). They say, "[We] choose torx head bolts for our stems and aero bars - why? It’s simply a better bolt. It comes down to the way the tool head interacts with the bolt. Common hex tools tend to strip the bolt head if the bolt is over torqued. This is especially true with lightweight bolts. [We] wanted to be able to use a lightweight bolt with reliable performance. Bolts on stems and aero bars are critical to safety – having a reliable bolt is crucial."

"The torx head is more robust than hex-head bolts and will not easily strip. Torx fasteners also were designed for use with a torque-limiting wrench (torque wrench), which is needed to achieve the precise torque reading for proper installation."

And, "The T25 is becoming a go-to bolt in the bicycle industry. It’s been used on disc brakes for years {i.e, SRAM] and also is in use on chainring bolts, derailleurs and shifters. What’s more, the T25 tool is a common in bike shops or hardware stores and is readily available alone or in multi-tool sets."
