Damn it I forgot this was for 35mm bars, anyways, Gamut are clearing stock and have their
crazy light Cillios 31.8mm Stems down to $25.
I think the matte red looks pretty sweet-

You are not really calling them crazy light??? Better looking and way lighter and probably more durable too: https://www.newmen-components.de/en/46/mtb/stems/evolution-sl-3184/
Good price for the Gamut though.
Yeah I'm an idiot, read the weight of the 40mm and thought it was for the 50mm stem. Even then it seems I have forgotten how light the other stems in this thread are, it's not even that much lighter than my Profile, hahaha!
It is a properly wide stem with a fair bit of surface area for the clamping area, single piece faceplate stops it looking like a stem off a 20yo Scott XC bike.
I wonder what "Class" the stem is in? This seems like a bold claim- best-in-class longterm durability.

what's going on with Gamut? are they winding down operations? haven't heard anything from them lately. edit: i was looking at their chainrings a while back. i'd messaged them inquiring what the offset is (can't find it anywhere) and never received a response.

From what Newmen has written on another forum, they test their stems and bars according to the "DH Standard" protocol to 200,000 load cycles w/o them breaking.

Deburring a reasonably made sheet metal part via electropolishing seems ok to me. Heck seems better than machining a 45 degree chamfer on some aluminum and calling it a day.
