Not exactly the most flashy stem on the market
There are stiffer OS'ed stems out there

Came as OEM equipment on a Canyon frame.
Syntace once again delivers a no-frills great working piece of equipment. It's light, strong and it works - need I say more?

Strength:

Light weight, cost

Weakness:

No etched graphics. Not the Prettyist stem on the market.

I use the F99 135mm with the Ti bolt kit on my mountain bike. At 112g I believe this is just about the lightest most durable stem on the market for road or mtb. You'd be hard pressed to find a lighter stem. Out on the trails riding cross country I dont have any problem with steering or flexing. It just simply works.

Strength:

Light, strong

Weakness:

Limited number of sizes, only one rise.

It's light and strong, and while it's not cheap, it's not exactly bank-breaking. The durability is excellent, and unlike the POS 3T Zepp stem I once used, I've never had a problem with my handlebars rotating when I hit bumps. The only flaw is the limited size run (75, 90, 105, 120, 135...)

Strength:

Stiffness Looks cool

Weakness:

Limited sizes

This is a very stiff stem. I can not feel any flex at all when I climb out of the saddle. At the same time, it is very light, and it is very understated in appearance.
