Item # RCF000U

Description

Stems haven't quite kept up with the growing popularity of 35mm bars, but Race Face is working to change that, and the Atlas 35mm Stem is leading the way. It's intended for serious gravity riding, and made accordingly from bomber 6061-T6 aluminum, which is nice and light but still tough enough to take a hammering without getting thrashed. The four-bolt clamp is designed to lock down on your bars without creating pressure points, which lead to weakness, and the U-shaped interface helps distribute the load to prevent failure. It comes in three lengths to help you fine-tune your setup, and weighs right around 160g, which makes it competitive with less durable XC-style stems.

  • 6061-T6 aluminum
  • 35mm bar diameter
  • 1 1/8in steerer tube diameter
  • Four-bolt bar attachment
  • 0mm rise

Go Wide!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When I decided to go wider on my handlebars I knew 35mm was the way to go! I picked up a Race Face Atlas 35mm stem to attach to my Turbine handlebars and I couldn't be happier! After a season and a half of abuse the stem and handlebar combo has held up very well and shows no signs of stopping.

Go Wide!

Radical

The Atlas stem is a solid choice for your Trail or #Enduro bike. It's light at 160 grams (50mm version) without sacrificing strength. Like anything else from Race Face, this is a great example of form meeting function.

Control and Stability

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

When building my new Pivot Mach 6 I needed a 35 mm stem to pair with my Race Face SIXC 35 20mm Rise Bars and the Atlas was the obvious choice. Plus you get a nice topo map of the Whistler Bike Park etched on the side. I am 6'1" so I went with the 65 mm length. The larger diameter on the Atlas makes for solid, stable descending and my wide 800 mm bars add a nuance of control that I am still getting used to. I can't wait to try this new set-up on some lift laps on the Tidal Wave at Deer Valley.



Big thanks to Joe Bolton in our Retail Store Bike Shop for getting my new Mach 6 put together.

Pretty cool stem

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

the race face 35m stem is pretty rad. Its not super light weight but it allows to to put wider longer bars on your bike. It seems pretty bomb proof.

Race Face Atlas 35 Stem (50mm)

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The perfect compliment to the Race Face Next 35 handlebar that came spec'd on my bike! I've only used it a couple times so far, but expect a more detailed review in a few months.

Race Face Atlas 35 Stem (50mm)

So far so good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this because I wanted a shorter stem (went from 85mm to 65mm). Sure enough, my handlebar is closer to me when I'm riding now. My handlebar has also stayed in place while I'm riding, so I guess the stem is doing all I ask of it.

Gnarly Stem!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This stem is so solid and burly looking that I always have people ask me about it. With the 35mm cockpit it really adds a cool look to the bike and is very solid. Super easy to install and has great graphics.

Gnarly Stem!
