The Atlas 35 Direct Mount stem was designed with gravity set in mind, always looking to take downhill and freeriding to the limit. Faster, harder, higher are all words racing through your mind during every ride session. The Atlas 35 Direct Mount stem has just the kind of attitude you're looking for. It was designed to reduce overall system weight while retaining the proven stiffness and performance the Atlas line is known for. The stem itself is measurably stiffer than the 31.8mm offering and, thanks to the lightweight single bolt design, the weight savings gained by the reduction in bar material actually makes the 35 system lighter overall. An impressively strong and light addition to your aggressive trail or DH/FR build.
