A perfect compliment to your Evolve XC cranks & seatpost, the Evolve XC stem is designed specifically for cross country riders looking for a lightweight performance stem at a reasonable price. • Forged & blasted 6061 aluminium for high strength & fatigue resistance at a reasonable weight. • Four bolt bar clamp holds bar securely in position. • Interlocking U-Shaped Handlebar Clamp Geometry. • Faceplate eliminates “stress risers” which could cause your bar to bend or break. This is particularly important for carbon bar users. • Machined logo on bar clamp gives this value-oriented stem a high end look. • Built for XC • Rise: + or - 6º (reversible) • Bar Diameter: 31.8mm • Weight: 145g (70mm with 31.8mm bar clamp)

I have this in 70mm. It is simply a superb all-round MTB stem. I use it on my Meta 55 so it has had a hammering for 12 months and I use 720mm bars so plenty of leverage but this stem handles it all with no flex. What is the point in paying more? Excellent!!!

I have used this on my all mountain full susser for 15 months. It has been well hammered. The stem is excellent. It is light enough but robust too. The face plate does as it says and spreads the stresses well. This is far more than a xc stem because it may be low weight but it is designed to be strong and its cheap!!

I bought this stem due to changing my std handle bars to oversized risers and I have to say it fits perfectly (once I added an extra spacer). Its light weight, strong and looks good. I have not yet been out on my bike since fitting but I think its just the job. I will consider buying other RaceFace products if it lives up to my expectations.
