25.4 mm standard, the price (169 €) it's the same of the old version UL2... :D

WOW, nice.

That saves a 6g of a 100mm UL2, my 100mm UL2 is 93.
6 nice but rather expensive grams to replace my Ul2 with.

207 us isn't cheap. 6 gram savings for 50 bucks more than the ul2. Every gram counts I guess. I think I might stick to my f99. Super nice stem though.

I wonder if any strenght was sacrified comparing to UL2.
They could make it even lighter using magnesium.

It looks beautiful. But along the same lines as a few others, I'll stick to my Syntace. Economically it makes sense since $300 for 14g is not a bargain and Syntace won my loyalty by replacing stems they didn't need to last year.

And I'll stick to my Smica ;)
110g (lighter with Ti bolts) for 100mm and £20!

Can't go wrong with that. Its the same as Ritchey WCS I believe.
