We didn’t set out to make the lightest stem in the world. No, we set out to make the lightest stem in the world that we’d feel good about you riding on or off road in any ‘normal’ circumstance. The new EC 90 SL stem weighs just 110-grams in the 100mm length thanks to our exclusive TaperWall technology and a touch of titanium hardware. Because we wanted to be sure the EC90 would never leave you wanting more when it came to handling or durability, we used our proprietary DST or Distributed Stress Technology and Top Lock faceplate to maximize the handlebar/stem interface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great superlight stem
This stem is great. The look will not be everybodies cup of tea, although i think is looks amazing. The stem's uni direction matte carbon finish is beautiful though, but you cant really see it in a photo. I was slightly saddened to see the faceplate was actually made from alloy, however thinking about it, its a lot less likely to fail! The best thing about the stem is its weight, at around 100g for 90mm, it is amazingly light, possibly the lightest stem around and it is pleanty stiff and vibration dulling too. Top stuff from Easton!

Sure, a carbon stem is not a necessity by any means. An AL stem will likely be the same weight or lighter, for half the cost. But it will never be as cool as carbon. You don't *need* a carbon stem, but if you *want* one, the EC90 is fantastic. Very very stiff, nice touches like Ti hardware and permanent "carbon prep" type treatment of the bar clamp, and 130g in a 120mm length.
