Sorry, dunno about the Truvativ, but the Kalloy Uno Ultralight stem is lighter and cheaper. The claimed weight for a 110mm stem is 116g but the true weight is 109g with steel bolts. It's under $30 on Ebay from SpeedPark.

'only' 135g is a misnomer, I have a 100mm stem off a £350 Voodoo that weighs 136g!

In my experience truvativ's parts have weighed pretty close to the claimed weight.

I like their stems. They're cheap-ish, but have really good construction, and are very boxy + have wide clamping areas. If one comes on a stock bike, I consider it a selling point. Still, I'd go with Syntace first in the build quality/weight department. However, these go for 40 bucks online, and that ain't half bad.
