Date Reviewed: September 2, 2009

Strengths:    Strong, no flex, looks good, lightish, cheapish

Weaknesses:    Shortest is 90mm - could go for a 70mm or 80mm option

Bottom Line:   
Crikey! Stems are one part where high end brands seem way overpriced (Th, RF, Eas)- they only have to connect the steerer & bars - with reach & rise options to match you and your frame - and not break or flex too much or look bad

These are cheap in NZ, nicely finished with ok graphics & minimal faceplate, don't seem to flex, and they're light enough for most uses. They havn't damaged carbon bars or gouged my knees. Come in 0 or 10 degree rise

One shorter length in the range would be good - say a 70mm

No nonsense engineering at recession beating price, thanks Titec

Date Reviewed: August 19, 2007

Strengths:    10 degree or 0 degree option. Most stems come with 5 or 6 degree but I wanted just a bit more. Also bought it to go with my Hellbent bars. Strong and light, at least compared to my OE one.

Weaknesses:    It didnt come with my bike?

Bottom Line:   
Mine is the Rip 3D SILVER, the one pictured above is the GOLD series. The gold may be a touch lighter but I didn't like the shiny front plate or the heafty price.

Submitted by Oliver a Weekend Warrior from San Diego, CA, USA

Date Reviewed: August 14, 2007

Strengths:    Available in a zero degree rise, product finish, and a respectable weight.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Great stem for the money, and one of maybe three manufactures that offer a zero degree rise stem. They are a quality stem that will not break the bank! Will write a follow up when I have more time on the stem.
