This is a top quality item, comparable to Thomson and Renthal (both of which I have owned). Considering the price of other stems in this price bracket, this is good value.
I have the 70mm version which looks a lot shorter when fitted than I expected and looks better than the images on the website. I can't comment on 'stiffness' as I have never noticed this with stems but everything feels as it should...!!
Service from Merlin was excellent as always - very quick delivery. Item and retailer are recommended.
Wanted to try a shorter stem so swapped my Easton Haven 70mm for this in 60mm. The stem is super light and really well machined. Very happy with this stem.
I bought the 70mm version of this stem, and am very impressed with it. It feels stiffer than the same length Thomson stem with 750mm handlebars, even though it's lighter. Very well finished and the logos are fairly discrete. Also, very good value from Merlin.
I was amazed of the quality of that stem. Just superb!!!!
Very nice stem A+.
Extremely light and strong. The cnc that has been put into it is on par with Thomson.
A excellent headset that brings a bit of bling :)
Brilliant next day service from Merlin as usual.
Fantastic stem from Raceface. Swapped from a 100mm stem on my 29er to this in 70mm and very happy with it, instantly improving the handling.
The stem is great looking (personally, much better than Thomson), light weight, plenty stiff enough for XC/Trail.
Would highly recommend the Turbine stem (and the Turbine series in general) to anyone after a XC/Trail stem
Excellent service as usual, i always check with merlin first.
Light strong and very well made, bought 60mm version.
Top service as usual
Beautifully machined, strong and very lightweight. It really is better looking than in the pics and feels just right on my 29er. In my opinion it's equally as good as Thompson and Easton stems for significantly less money. Speaking of which, Merlin's prices and service are second to none. Keep up the good work guys!
Very good product, like a Thomson or best...
Great product at a great price and usual Merlin speedy delivery.
70mm version, light and very well made. No fitting issues.
I bought the 60mm version of this stem and am really impressed with its weight and stiffness. The fit and finish is as good as a Thomson X4, and the price that I bought it for makes it even more attractive!
I bought the 70mm Turbine stem and paired up with an Easton Haven bar which to me is a good combination. Previously I had a 110mm stem which felt streched with the Easton bar. The Turbine stem is a thing of beauty, very light but also tough enough for All Mountain riding. I just spent 3 days in Cumbria and Yorkshire hammering trials and the combo felt very good.
As always an excellent price and service from Merlin.
The Race Face Turbine 70mm stem is one of the lightest stems at this length you will find. The quality of the machining is outstanding and it is strong enough for all mountain riding. Love this stem.
Great price and service from Merlin.
