Want a pro tip? Most pro teams don't use carbon fiber stems or handlebars for their riders. Why? Well, mostly it boils down to the fact that those are some of the only components where alloy still makes more sense than carbon fiber. The FSA Team Issue stem is 3D forged from AL6061 aluminum for optimized stiffness and durability. For added stiffness and to help dampen vibration, it's wrapped in a layer of uni-directional carbon fiber to bring it up to race spec. It's a stiff, tough, durable stem that's perfect for racing, training, or just looking the part.
