Recoil bar seems to be over. I understand the reasoning behind the 2 tubes on the new bar (untwisting part), but I think it makes the bar less clean and more cumbersome.

And another showdown in the allround category from the same designer, Reach versus Moto X.

Nitro looks really clean, I'm digging that white blue scheme, really pops.

Awesome. I hope this all goes well for cabrinha. The new bar looks perfect, I imagine the double PU untwist system will work as well as cores. I wish I could order one today.

Would also like to know more about this HT Dacron, they say “exclusive to the nitro” in one place but then it says
“HTD for enhanced arc stability and improved handling characteristics” and “HTD hybrid frame” for both the switchblade and FX.

Then for the contra and moto it says it’s built with “HTD lite”

So if someone can untangle the differences between HT, HTD, and HTD lite I would appreciate it.
