High level athlete’s performance in disciplines such as cycling can sometimes be maximized by personalizing their gears for the specific requirements. Additive manufacturing technologies are interesting in this context as they allow rapid anufacturing of components and eases the transition from the design to the experimental validation. This article describes the development of an aluminium race bike stem that was used by Lasse Norman Hansen, bronze medallist at the Omnium competition at the 2016 Rio Olympic games. The stem was manufactured via the powder-bed selective laser melting (SLM) technology and fatigue tested according to ISO standard 4210-5.
