We can all agree that stems aren't the most exciting new part purchase. So why spend the extra clams on a carbon stem? Carbon fiber stems have become highly sought after for their combination of stiffness, lightweight, and smooth ride qualities. Thankfully, because of Syncros' clever design, you won't have to foot too much more cabbage for the XR 1.0 Carbon Stem.
Constructed from unidirectional carbon fiber, the XR 1.0 carbon stem is designed with a low stack height and a negative rise for aggressive mountain bikers looking to lower their handlebar position. They employ a strategic pairing of aluminum and carbon fiber to achieve the perfect balance of strength, stiffness and a low weight. The body is forged from an advanced 7050 aluminum before being reinforced with high modulus carbon fiber. The wide four-bolt face plate design better distributes stress and lowers the clamping force required to secure the handlebar. Whether you're an all-in XC racer or a rowdy trailteer, the XR 1.0's carbon-swathed design could be the missing link.
Giving it a 4 for now since I haven't ridden it yet. It looks badass! The low stack height is sweet. +/-2 rise is way better than dealing with 6. I paired it up with the Syncros carbon flat bar. I'll try to post back after some riding when the snow melts in MN.
