Alloy still too heavy for your bike? The Loaded Precision X-Lite Ti stem is about as light as you're going to get when it comes to X-country stems. Weighing in at a sleek, feathery 99g, this is one stem that'll you'll hardly notice once you slap it on your bike. Contrary to the name, it's not actually made of titanium, because that would be a little too fragile and brittle for XC use. Instead it's machined out of a block of premium 7075 aluminum where every ounce has been shaved to give you the lightest, stiffest, most dependable stem you'll find.
