35mm of capability.
The rise of the 35mm handlebar is a great thing for nearly all mountain bike riders. The fatter bars are stronger, stiffer, and in some cases, even lighter at the same time. There aren't a huge number of 35mm-ready stems on the market yet, but thankfully, the Race Face Turbine 35mm Stem is up for nearly any kind of riding.
To ready the Turbine stem for 35mm handlebar duty, well, they don't really need to change much besides the clamp diameter. The standard Turbine stem, like all Race Face parts, has strength to spare. For starters, engineers render the Turbine from aerospace 7075 aluminum. This provides the high strength and fatigue resistance at a sub-140-gram weight (90mm), while a four-bolt bar clamp holds the bar securely in position without creating stress points. To accomplish this, Race Face uses an interlocking, U-shaped faceplate. On the other end, opposing steerer tube bolts provide extreme clamping power, without damaging the steerer tube.
The Race Face Turbine 35mm Stem comes in one color and in lengths from 50mm to 90mm, with two rise options: zero or +\- six degrees. The Race Face Turbine is compatible with 1.125in steerer tubes and 35mm handlebars only.
