Switched to Shimano Pro Vibe UD Carbon stem 110mm, and Vibe Compact Bars, 42cm C-C. Haven't got the bars yet, will weigh those, but the weight of the Shimano is right on target, if you don't have the faceplate or bolts. Hmm....
110mm Box says 115g
Which is the size I received.
Stem, no faceplate or bolts:
And now the Bars....
Box says 195g, since they don't specify, going to have to assume 40mm bars, mine are 42mm C-C
Drum roll please.....
Not too far off, and maybe they didn't specify size anywhere I can see. And, their site says 190g, and that doesn't specify compact, ergo or round.
Considering the box weighed 299g it came in, can't complain too much.

Oddly enough, I thought that the actual weight (as you verified) was exactly as one would expect from the "PRO" line. Why would they even suggest it is lighter than what it actually is?
(also: too heavy.)
I'm not whining over a few grams, isn't going to make a difference in a race, but just found it interesting how far it is off, unless you don't include the faceplate/bolts, then dead on.

Maybe Deda is making them on contract
20% would make a 1000g frame now 1200..............
You know that is funny, because the other option for my new cockpit/color setup I was looking at the Deda Superleggero stem -8, and their Presa compact bars as a combo. They have that stem listed at 99g for the 110mm...which I find hard to believe. The 42mm Presa bar is listed at 214g, which could be reality and normal.
But not unlike Cannondale stating an "average" weight for an Evo in size that doesn't exist. Still wrong tho

It has the H2 geo......one step racier than a hybrid bike
