Japan's unique event, Keirin racing, is very strictly regulated . Because Keirin is run by a
Japanese government agency and because Keirin's raison d'etre is actually
gambling (proceeds from which fund Japan's schools), it is absolutely critical that the
equipment be standardized, uniform and dependable.

Licensed profesional Keirin riders have their frames built to measure by a small number of Keirin
Certfied framebuilders. Foremost among them is the acknowledged master, Nagasawa

Certified Keirin components bear this NJS Keirin Approved label:

Few components are good enough

The quality standards are so high that Campagnolo Record Pista equipment didn't make it. Campagnolo
dedicated years to developing their Keirin Pista series, which was finally certified in 1987. We mention
that as an insight into the fanatically high standards of Keirin

Lately, we've seen a trend in road equipment to silly-light handlebars. Weights have plunged to the limits of
safety. And beyond. We don't generally recommend road bars below 200 grams. They exist if you are so
inclined. Some riders prefer them for their inherent flex as much as for the ultralight weight.

The exact antithesis of silly-light is Nitto Keirin gear.

Even big shouldered Keirin riders trust these bars

Nitto / Tokyo is a family-owned manufacturer of quality bicycle equipment.
no moped parts, no fishing gear, no electronic tchotchkes, just good solid bicycle parts
This is one of Nitto's oldest and best-known products.
Few handlebars are as heavy. We know of none more rigid.

classy lines, too
