Far and Near's S1 series stems feature a four bolt, one-piece faceplate with steel bolts for an excellent combination of low weight and durability. The stem's body is aggressively machined from a single block of 6061 aluminum for minimal weight while retaining a level of strength and stiffness on par with stems from better known manufacturers. These stems are anodized black with laser etched logos and size markings.
Far and Near's stems are suitable for Road and Cross Country use. The edges of both clamps are beveled, making them suitable for use with carbon forks and handlebars.
