Utilizing fully CNC machined aluminum and advanced manufacturing techniques, the Split-Second Stem cannot be matched. Our uniquely designed stem not only offers superior strength, but is extremely light weight, thus creating the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio of any stem we have tested. Such impressive torsional rigidity is due to its oversized 55mm clamp width and unique split-clamp design. Proudly made in the USA.

Strengths: Light as fvck. Cutting the steer tube saves weight, so does not have a stem cap. saves tons of weight. this has to be the sexiest part on my bike too.
Weaknesses: no one has heard/tried one of these amazing stems!!
if you'r a racer, and are looking for the fastest lightest stuff possible, this is your stem. if you're a hucker, xc rider, or worried about cutting your steer tube, don't get this. i just wish i could give it more than 5 chilis.

I just got my latest prototype of the new 70mm Split-Second stem from [I]Point-1 Racing[/I]. Man is it sweet looking, and is more similar to the 50 mm version than the intial prototype I used at the Toro DH series in spring 2008. Can't wait to get it installed and try it out!
