Salsa's Pro Moto 1 Stem is stiff, light and a thing of sheer beauty. The forged aluminum body is coated in a gloss black finish and includes titanium hardware for additional weight savings. Rounded edges make for excellent carbon compatibility. The Pro Moto 1 comes in a +/-5-degree rise.
Stem angle is one of the factors that determines handlebar height. A listed angle of 0 degrees actually provides a rise of 16-20 degrees, depending on the bike's head-tube angle. Flexible, athletic riders prefer lower-rise stems, while recreational riders usually favor higher-rise stems.
