Strength:

Super strong, solid, light weight if you care about that, and looks bad ass!!!!!!!

Weakness:

None. Wish I could have found it in a 35 or 40mm size, they don't make them for my size handle bar 31.8 dia.

Upgraded to this stem today. Took it out for a ride. Super stiff, no slip what so ever from handle bars, looks sick.

Strength:

Solid and durable construction, mid-weighted stem, will not move once installed.

Weakness:

Weaknesses? What weaknesses?

I swapped my Bonty 7 degree Race Lite for this RF Atlas and despite the added weight of this as compared to the Bonty Race Lite, I feel like I have a lot more control when I'm in the corners and going down medium drops and descents. I went off a few nasty drops and separately hit a few trees at pretty fast speeds in TX, GA and LA and those wipe outs would've probably screwed up the alignment of my bars and stem pretty bad because that's what I expected to see when I looked down at my bike, but when I looked down the bars and stem didn't even budge an inch. This stem can take a beating and I'd highly advise heavy-to-downhill riders to get this asap!

Strength:

Light for an AM stem, no flex, excellent graphics

Weakness:

none

Excellent stem for AM and/or a bit more. TBH you could probably do light Dh on this. No issues in 1+ yrs of use.

Strength:

Great Looks, Not to light or heavy

Weakness:

N/A

The stem looks nice and is a great for those of us not looking to something too light or downhill heavy. It seems as if it took so long for RF to make something of upper quality to fit the all mountain category. The Stem looks great and offers 110mm size (extactly what I needed). I am a heavier rider and used to break the light stuff and thought everything on my bike needed to be DH heavy not so now. Great Stem, I trail ride and it is perfect; I haven't owned it long enough to give it a durability report.
