Syncros FRIC Stem
$80 / syncros.com
Most freeride-worthy stems are as light as elephants and as svelte as bricks. And then there's the new FRIC: a mere 123 grams of industrial-design sexiness. Though the sleek FRIC is weight-weenie light, Syncros claims its new stem is also big-hit tough, thanks to its forged construction and innovative clamp design.
