Optimized for 29er use, the FSA SL-K -20 Degree Stem lowers your cockpit for cross-country racing, thanks to its low-profile 28mm stack height and -20-degree rise. Pair it with some flat, relatively wide handlebars ranging from 700 to 740-millimeters for extra levels of control and a race-ready profile.
Made of 3D forged 2014-series aluminum, the SL-K stem starts with the good stuff — an alloy strong and light enough that it's perfectly appropriate for cross-country racing. The metal's strength allows for copious machining, shaving weight where it's not necessary, without sacrificing strength or stiffness. The chromoly hardware is tough as nails, and the four-bolt alloy faceplate looks great with its black anodized finish.

One of a few options for getting the front end low, but on the heavy side.
Is this the -20 stem as pictured? The specs read something different.
I ordered this and received the as pictured FSA SL-K -20°. I don't know why the rise is listed +/-6º and the -20º is left off the title. It's definitely the -20º negative rise. Also of note is that 110mm stem is 191 grams.
Thanks for bringing up the issue BrownStallion. Tech and copy have been updated to reflect the stem's -20-degree rise.
