The Nitto road touring handlebars are designed for multiple hand positions and comfortable riding while touring long distances on road, trail, or gravel.
Ben’s Cycle and benscycle.com staff and customers have been riding on Nitto bars for many years so we have a lot of helpful experience.

Each of these bars is slightly different than a traditional road drop bar, allowing for different positions and grips depending on the surface.

What are the Differences with the Nitto Road Touring Handlebars?
- The B132, B135, and B136 are called the Randonneur models.
- The B132 has the least drop and most reach of the Randonneur models, with B135 in the middle, and B136 with the most drop but still 110mm of reach.
- The B132 also has the most flare while the B136 has the least.
- The B135 and 132 both have a dip in the top bar.
- The B135 SSB and RM-014 have 31.8 stem clamp widths.
- The RM-013 and RM-014 are the Dirt Drop models and are a cross between a road and mountain bar with a greater bar flare.
- The RM-014 is shaped like a traditional road bar but the drops flare out. That means you get a relatively traditional road bar on top for riding the road and a stable drop grip when you ride trails.
- The RM-013 has less flare than the 014.
