great to have good friends in the bicycle business who've given us
access to products from one of the largest and best carbon factories in
the world. This stem is manufactured in the same leading edge
where many of the big brand names have their carbon components made.
The designers have taken their best ideas from stems
they produce for the big names and put them into this stem.
Constructed of hand laid carbon fiber with aluminum alloy clamps, this
stem weighs only 154 grams in the 90 mm length (9

lengths below.) A beautifully finished high gloss
makes this stem a very cool upgrade for your bike.

handlebar clamp is made of 7075 T6 Aluminum alloy and holds your
handlebar so it will not slip (when properly tightened of course).
Because it has a nice wide clamp, the clamping force is distributed
across a large area, making this stem ideal for carbon handlebars.
The fork clamp is also very well designed and strong,
using an opposed bolt system for a secure grip. Very
important is the fact that this stem is light, but not superlight.

is also compatible with popular 31.8 mm diameter
carbon and aluminum handlebars as well as the matching Pro Carbon handlebar that
