Very nice and light but expensive
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Nice quality but pricey like all other decent carbon stems.
Super pro, but is it a good value?
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This stem is sweet! It looks great, relatively chunky on the front of your bike but not gaudy. I like it because it gives you almost the same stiffness as the Zipp Sprint Stem, but saves you 40+ grams.
Don't forget the stem uses a T25 key and not a hex. It is hard to forget though, Zipp throws one in with the purchase of the stem. The stem also comes in a nice waterproof bag. I use the bag almost every ride to store my phone and money in my jersey pocket.
Important note! When installing the stem make sure the washers are inserted properly. I almost cracked it before the first ride.
I love this stem and if you can afford it, you should buy it! If you are on a budget and rather spend the extra money on carbon bars buy the Zipp Course SL stem. The Course SL stem is 2 grams heavier and will save you $150+.
