The Turbine Stem appeases the need of cross country racers, but true
to Race Face's reputation of overbuilding, this stem can be safely run
on an all-mountain bike. To maximize stiffness and minimize weight, Race
Face constructs 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 risers. To accomplish this,
Race Face uses an interlocking, U-shaped faceplate.
Likewise, opposing steerer tube bolts provide extreme clamping power,
without damaging the steerer tube. The Turbine has laser-etched logos
and comes in multiple lengths from 60mm to 110mm, with two rise options:
zero or +\- six degrees. The Race Face Turbine is compatible with
1.125in steerer tubes and 31.8mm handlebars.
