Hi,

Hope everyone’s summer has been going well. Just want to provide everyone a quick update regarding the progress of the new stems and production dates. We had originally anticipated production to commence July and shipping out our updated frames by August. However, like with most new products, we encountered slight fitment issues with our new stainless steel stem profiles. We’re currently still revising the production molds for the stem profiles and internal components to ensure each component is precisely made and issue free.

 

In case you are unaware but changes on and along stem include:

  • Material changed from Aluminum to Stainless Steel

  • Profile changed to a hexagonal cross section to limit torsional rotation

  • Redesign locking joints along the stem

  • Change handle installment feature

  • New die-casted button

We expect mass production to commence fully in late September and anticipate a mid November ship date. We will be sending an email about 2-3 weeks prior to shipping date to confirm shipping addresses and any other required information.

Please feel free to email us directly at hello@hedgehogproducts.com with any questions or concerns and as always, we aim to respond within 2-3 days.

 

Regards,

Team Hedgehog
