As mcatano said in a previous thread as he suggested these stems:

I have a set of these and they're what you'd expect from Nitto - beautifully finished, high quality. Great bars. They feel remarkably similar to my Ritchey WCS Curves.

Soma just introduced the Hwy 1 bar which to be a pretty direct copy of the Nitto:

Both the Soma and the Nitto come in black and silver. The Nitto is around $100-115 shipped from Japan, the Somas will probably be $30-40 at your LBS.


So guys I was just wondering if anyone of you has tried these.
What's your opinion about the Soma? Is it so much worse compared to the Nitto?
Nitto is a lot more expensive, but the Soma at least looks great, too...
I need your opinions on this... :)

Thanks in advance

The Nitto comes around 330 grams, and the Soma Hwy one is also 320-330 grms according to G.

I looked at a photo of the Hwy 1. Are you sure they are the same profile as the Nitto? On the Nitto, the perches and the drop ends are parallel to each other. The Hwy 1s don't look that way.
