Nitto ADB-X:
  • Reach: 115mm (5mm longer)
  • Drop: 150mm (10mm deeper)
  • Width: 37cm
  • URL: https://www.benscycle.com/nitto-adb-...-x_870/product
  • Sort of a hipster cult favorite, but so were Nitto B123 which were raced at the highest levels of the sport.
  • Riding the tops may be uncomfortable due to the angle. But, the same can be said of standard track bars (including Scattos) due to creating room for forearm clearance for standing starts.




Nitto heat treated aluminum is as light and strong as carbon at a fraction of the cost. I've used several pairs over the years. The only downside is that you'll need a 26.0-31.8mm shim for your stem. Not a big deal. I've used shims several times before (even for powerful standing starts), with no issues.
