Atlas is designed to bridge the needs of AM and FR/DH riders: light enough for AM, tough enough for FR and DH, providing the ultimate in versatility.
"Race Face's Atlas line has been a long-standing mainstay for the Canadian component manufacturer, and they have made some well thought out changes throughout the line. Gone are the AM and FR designations - Atlas is now one line of products designed to bridge the needs of AM and FR/DH riders: light enough for AM, tough enough for FR and DH. Some products are being discontinued, such as the D2 stem, which is replaced by the Atlas stem (featured below), while others are simply revised or given incremental improvements. A solid component line has become that much more...solid."
Race Face Atlas: Exclusive First Look

If you need a 65mm or 50mm stem, you can't go wrong with this. Rock solid, sound clamping and looks great. For weight weenies: my 65mm = 168g and 50mm = 148g.
Bought this stem to replace a Race Face Turbine stem which was a little too light-weight for my new enduro FS build. This stem is noticeably heavier than the Turbine, but also considerably stiffer which is the reason I bought it. Quality is every bit as good as the Turbine. Excellent Stem.
This stem is a quality bit of kit. The machining and graphics are excellent and it is a good weight. Looks great, even in boring black! Quick delivery. Very happy with this.
Light weight and strong, no flex felt whilst riding.
Great product, typical high quality from raceface, looks bombproof too, surprisingly light compared to the Diabolus version it replaced.
Great looking and lightweight.
