The Nitto North is a road swept back cruiser heat-treated handlebar. Add some style to your favorite bike with these uniquely shaped handlebars. They feature a comfortable 60 degree bend that reaches 55cm wide. Using the common 25.4mm bar diameter, there are plenty of stems you can match to this pair of handlebars.
I love having these comfortable bars take place of my old drop bars. For decades I've been at home riding on drop bars but had to switch recently to get into a more upright position and literally save my neck for medical reasons. Some cork tape on this gently curved bar offers a comfortable range of positions when I want a place to ride forward for a little bit more stability. My existing microSHIFT bar end shifters fit perfectly. I shimmed this with sheet aluminum for the 25.4mm to fit in a 26.0mm clamp. (A trimmed soda can would work too, and Nitto makes and recommends their stainless steel version.) The pricier aluminum version of this bar is pricier, lighter, and hard to find, but I'm happy with the CrMo version. It also has "Nitto" written twice (up and down) for whether you mount with the rise side up or down.
You can get a better sense for the bend and setups by searching for "Albatross B352" on the web.
This is a well made handle bar that willstand up to years of riding. I thought I could use it in reverse bull-horn style but I could never get the geometry right. Be really sure the unique design of this bar works with your bike as it is a pain to ship back.
