The latest addition to our collection of stems; the Matt Ray signature VVS stem. Matt’s very particular about his ride and wanted a front load stem with optimum bar position, stability, and control. The VVS stem combines that with Cold Forged construction to give you maximum strength. Watch Matt shred some of the many concrete parks of AZ and put the VVS Stem to the test.

Just as I stated in the street recap, I threw this edit together as a precursor to the official SS recap video I plan on doing, so forgive the lack of editing, stabilization, color correction, or..anything. With the 12 heaviest dudes making it to the finals, today should be nuts. - Ryan Fudger
