3T Stylus 25 Pro Seatpost $114.99
As part of 3T's setback post collection, the Stylus 25 Pro Seatpost is the Italian component designer's 'fresh new take on the two-bolt seatpost.' The major contributor setting this post apart from other offset seatposts is its sleek clamping interface. This integrated design provides a solid, lightweight base for mounting your saddle, and it relies on the same proven materials and craftsmanship embodied by all things 3T.
The new Stylus 25 Pro seatpost was constructed from a lightweight and durable shot-peened aluminum. Long a staple material choice among professional cyclists for its durability, aluminum also provides low weight and smooth riding characteristics. Atop the post, 3T added its refined 2-bolt alloy head. This new finned clamping interface is where the post really shines, as 3T spent considerable time getting both the look and functionality just right. The alloy head features a rearward 'swoosh' that was modeled after the classic single-bolt designs of the good ol' days, keeping that traditional aesthetic alive.
The two clamping bolts were placed on either side of the saddle-support cradle, resulting in a secure, stable clamping interface that's easy to adjust. 3T's Stylus 25 models place the seat clamp assembly 25mm back from the seatpost's center line for riders who prefer to sit slightly farther back than what's provided from a neutral post design.
The 3T Stylus 25 Pro Seatpost is available in 280 and 350mm lengths, with either a 27.2 or 31.6mm diameter. The post comes with a Black anodized finish and weighs around 225g (31.6mm x 280mm).
