About Conduit Offset Limit

Sometimes I don't know if I'm the boxer or the bag
Dear All,

Our specs restricted conduit bending as minimum two 90 degree bend or equivalent but don't say anything about offsets like below. Could you please tell me that there is a restriction at NEC for offsets?

That's a 3 point bend aka "saddle" We consider it a 90 degree bend. The only restriction of bends or offsets that I know of is 360 degrees between pull points.

If you make it up with a 45 and two 22.5 degree bends, it is a net of 90 degrees of bend.

If you make it up with lesser bends then it will have a net of less than 90.

Many of us were taught how to make them with a 45 and two 22.5's but you can make them with less bend, and about have to if you want a tight fit when crossing a small obstruction.
