Strengths:    Light, stiff.

Weaknesses:    A little pricey.

Bottom Line:   
I have the alloy stealth, which is light and stiff, low key look which I like. Recommend the version with the faceplate bolts spread out not the arx2. Has a gorilla grip on the steerer and carbon bars, zero flex. Only annoying thing is its a little pricey, and the side holes in the steer clamp may save weight but show through less than beautiful steerers - if someone can get close enough to see!

Bottom Line:   
It’s not the lightest stem, nor is it the stiffest. However it’s one of the stiffer stems out there and also one of the lightest, which to me is a hard combination to beat. Plus it comes in a nice variety of sizes and a -17 is available. Not to mention it’s also pretty cheap, especially considering it uses high grade AL and a full titanium bolt package. Another plus is that unlike a lot of other stems the warranty is not voided if you use another companies bars. Even regardless of price I think it’s one of the best all around stems on the market.

Strengths:    What more can I say, it a good value part to have on your bike

Weaknesses:    Get a torque wrench and be professional in your maintenance of your bike.

Bottom Line:   
Good finish, reliable, does its job of securing the bars to the steerer tube. Doesn't cost a fortune and comes in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Strengths:    Light and stiff 7000 series stem.
Very sweet 4 bolt faceplate and high quality throughout.
Excellent fit and finish.
Excellent graphics.

Weaknesses:    I would like to see a 0 deg stem offered.

Bottom Line:   
Put this ARX 120mm stem on my road bike and immediately felt the stiffness. I live amongst lots of hills so I climb a lot and need a strong stem and this is the cat's meow. I had a Ritchey 4-axis (nice stem BTW), but the 3T is stiffer. Different alum and design so there you go. Great balance of lightweight-strength-looks-price. I absolutely love the new look of the 3T stuff and have the Ergos Pro bar to go with it and it's superb.

Strengths:    Light weight
Stiff yet soaks up road vibrations well
choice between 84 and 76 degree angles

Weaknesses:    None thus far

Bottom Line:   
These replaced my stock Specialized carbon SL 100mm stem. The weight is very close to advertised (122g) and the paint scheme is beautiful with my black and red highlight Tarmac Pro. Takes road vibration well and is stiff and solid. For the weight and build quaility this stem is a bargain.
