Does anyone have any experience with the EM90 road stem. Currently looking to upgrade from Icon Graphite. Planning on EC90 bars and like the zero degree stem that Easton offers. Also wondering if I need a shorter stem with the bars.

I have one. Overall, a nice stem. I don't like the gloss black finish, it is well done, I'm just not a glossy fan, I much prefer matte. The stickers look very cool, but they are just that, stickers. Anyway, I'm really nitpicking. A good stem, magnesium and pretty light.

Thanks! Are you using the stem with the carbon bars? How's the overall stiffness of the stem. I was thinking about the 3T Zepp as an alternative.

Yes, I'm using it with the Easton EC-90 bar. I had a Newton before and it seems at least as stiff as that stem.

You can do a lot better weight-wise. The lightest one they list is at 185g. - my bveloved Ritchey WCS tips the scales at 125 g. and the Ritchey doesn't use stickers - FWIW

Just don't call it light. ;-)
