Stems is stems, it's nothing new in the basic way it works and it's almost certainly strong enough. Check the odyssey elementary stem if you want to see a different stem.

Apparently it's actually stronger than a normal stem, not that I've ever broken a normal one. The fact that it weighs less is just by-product of the design.

the idea behind it is that there is no bolts on the back of the stem to hit your knees on. something i do all the time doing whips

The Odyssey Elementary is designed by George French, aka the guy behind G-Sport, so you know it's a well designed product. go to www.gsport.co.uk and read about all of his parts. It doesn't even make sense its so smart and in depth.
