Looks like there's a new LTD handlebar and stem from PRO for 2015. Does anyone know where I can order these in the states? I've checked all over the web and there's a store in Australia that seems to carry some bars and an eBay seller in Taiwan with limited selection...

Sure wish they would offer their stiff+light stem models with a +/- 6deg rise. Their +/- 10deg just doesn't work for me unless I want a huge stack of spacers :(

Are you aware it is same stem with new graphics? Have you checked Fairwheelbikes stem test? Maybe you'd change your mind if you read that!?

wheelsONfire, thanks for pointing out Fairwheel's stem test. Looks like I will be looking elsewhere...

Borrowed a buddy's bike for a race last week with those bars. The bend on those is quite nice I've gotta say.

Why? Because the Fairwheel Gods have spoken and shown the stem is flexy in the test? I'm a sprinter, I can assure you, the carbon stem is plenty stiff. the frame and other parts of the bike, particularly wheels, have more flex than the stem when it comes to feel of the bike when serious power is being put down.

I also run the compact carbon vibe bars with T800 UD, very stiff for carbon bars along with the stem combo.

Wouldn't hesitate for a second to run a Shimano carbon vibe stem in the future.

That Pro Vibe is stiff but not the lightest?
