i bought a cavendish stem pro vibe to try and that thing is literally unreal when it comes to the stiffness department. weighs a metric ton and looks terrible though if your bike doesn't have big aero tubes. also looks bad if it's not slammed on bearing cover. I like the way it's stiff, but can't get into it. so back to the ea90 which paired to easton TKO bars has done me well for this year =)

and talking about stiffness in general, i tried tko bars on my cross bike....it was the worst ever. hands were numb by the end of 45 minutes. swapped to equipe pro bars.... back in heaven.

Chunky, bulky, fat, heavy stems!
What about the beauty of CNC: Extralite, Rotor...?

They may be chunky, bulky & fat, thats a matter of taste... but they are absolutely not heavy or flexy!
Did you ever ride one?

Syntace F109 is a great stem with a very understated look. Just remove the decals with some nail polish remover an they look great. No issue with flex. The clamping is also good
