Because one is all you need.
It you take a gander at Enve's product catalog, you notice a diversity of products and versions thereof - for example, a few different handlebars, mountain bike wheels, road bike wheels, etc. What you also may notice, however, js one product that stands alone: the Enve Stem. Indeed, the company makes a direct-mount mountain stem for special applications, but otherwise, the Enve Stem is it for handlebar holders. Why? Because this one is both tough and light enough to do anything, on road and off, and at only 120g (100mm length version), that's pretty amazing.
But it's not just about numbers. Carbon stems of comparable weight from rival manufacturers will either be far less rigid or far more costly. The Enve Stem, however, has been engineered to meet or exceed the strength and rigidity of any other carbon stem on the market. A cold-forged, four-bolt alloy faceplate, molded-in threads, and titanium hardware, sound out the details and promise a long, trouble-free life of service. And, did we mention that this thing makes virtually any bike look better?
The Enve Stem is available six lengths from 75mm to 130mm. The stem is available in the color Black, and features a 31.8mm clamp diameter. This stem is only compatible with 1-1/8in steerer tubes and comes with a 6 degree incline/decline.

Awesome Stem, Great Finish
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this stem to pair with my Enve Handlebar, and both have proven to be great purchases. The finish on the stem is immaculate, and has a beautifully understated look to it. The clamping area of the stem affords a snug fit for the Enve bar, but not so tight that it mars the paint. It is as stiff a stem as I will ever need, and respectably light.
The stem looks like a negative rise but...
The stem looks like a negative rise but the description says positive. Please confirm.
You can run the ENVE Stem with a 6 degree positive or negative rise. The graphics will look the same either way.
