Well yes and no. The idea of the Horizon V2s offset is to recover any reach lost from it's 9° backsweep while keeping your riding position fairly similar.

Like you say, a nice, uncool lengthy stem will  have a similar effect but it'll alter the way the bike rides a little more.

No it doesn't.
It's exactly the same as using a longer stem.........only longer stems aren't cool are they?
