Listed weight at 310gr. Actual 426gr! 37% over!
Shallow drop is similiar to Ritchey Classic, although the drop is slightly off centred so it appears to cast outside of the ergo when viewed from above or straight on.
Nice price @ £21 compared to £60 odd for Newton (which is out of stock everywhere...) but horrendous weight & % overage on the actual to listed weight, never expected it to be that bad.
The Newton wasn't available in stock anywhere, so went with the slightly porky one as a compromise.
Figured I could live with an extra 100gr or so, but another 200gr over ideal weight (215gr ish) for h/bar is annoying.
Deda needs a weight warning label!
Also with classic italian drop shape there is 20mm difference in height which I couldn't loose when using the Zero as had already take off all spacers.
Get the feeling the bar probably works best for shimano style ergo as the hood riding position is more contained entirely on the lever itself, rather than being spread between the bar & hood which is more the case with Campag.
Would have got the Newton but no stocks available at the moment, so it was next best thing. Will get the Newton when it becomes available as 200gr extra is too much to live with + the bar diameter is soooo thick on the 'speciale' you can't get a end cap into it so ended up with honky wine bottle corks to fill the hole & tape end not so cool with SR.
Curious, the new shape of the ergo bars introduced to the market as of late, such as the Zero100, actually incorporate all features of anatomic/round/classic into one bar. Obviously switching to a new bar of such type requires rider alter their hand positions somewhat. I.e one isn't going to find a particular position in exactly the same place on the new bars compared to their old bar.
However, the new bars do actually provide more positions than would have been available previously. This is why I think they are better.
I also have a Cinelli Vai Palm bar which is 341g.
The Cinelli is the heaviest bar i have seen, judging but the listings on here. But i love the shape and its cheap.

Oval Concepts do quality stuff in silver.

Anybody who uses the search on here will get a pretty clear warning about Italian scales, especially the ones at Deda
For those of us Weight Weenies that don't know about this Italian or Deda weight issue bias, could you please fill us in?
