Strengths:    This DH stem is very light, looks good and works perfectly. I bought the black mirror finish in 40mm length and I really like how it makes my bike feel. Clamping area is large and well designed and pinch bolt design is well placed and machined. Any AM/DH rider should get one!

Weaknesses:    None so far, maybe stack height could be reduced but I don't have any complaints about the stem.

Bottom Line:   
Best bang for the buck stem wise, cool design, very light, strong and appealing. GET ONE!

Submitted by Ryan Daugherty a Downhiller from Midway UT

Date Reviewed: March 17, 2006

Strengths:    NONE

Weaknesses:    Fabricated very poorly... bolt busted on installation to their recommended settings. Face wasn't symetrical ... said it was supposed to fit a 1 1/8 steer tube.. and it was super loose .. at their specs.

Bottom Line:   
I wouldn't pedal with that ever.. i would be afraid the thing would bust at any time... NEVER buy this stem. Get something that isn't stamped out in haste. .. the worst part is Truvativ and the place i bought the thing wouldn't answer my emails..

Strengths:    Looks burly, nice lines, good finish, clean fabrication. Available in 25.4 mm size.

Weaknesses:    i'll tell you if it snaps

Bottom Line:   
looks great on the bike, made in all the right lengths, hollow so not as much of a weight penalty as other dh stems, 4 bolt bar clamp. It looks to be really well made. mine is black and the finish on it is really perfect. you can feel the quality and stiffness.
