Your seatpost is one of the most important contact points on your bike, and one that's sometimes a little underrated when you are looking to drop a few grams or achieve a better fit on your bike. We shell out lots of money for the best derailleurs and wheels, but the seatpost tends to get overlooked when it is time to do a few upgrades. The 3T Palladio Team Seatpost is one upgrade that will make for a more comfortable ride and won't dip too far into your race budget.
The Palladio Team Seatpost is constructed from high-modulus carbon fiber, which dampens road vibration for a more comfortable ride mile after mile. It features the 3T's patented DiffLock adjusting mechanism, allowing the saddle to be set precisely within a half-degree of rotation-- even after you have downed three triple Americanos. Additionally, the saddle bolts don't need to be torqued down hard in order to achieve a secure grip on the saddle rails, saving your expensive saddle from unsightly flesh wounds. The gear-like DiffLock adjustment system takes the guesswork out of adjusting your saddle and won't tip you violently off if the bolts accidentally come loose, and a 25mm setback allows for a perfect pedal stroke.
The 3T Palladio Team Seatpost comes in a sleek UD gloss black finish that matches any frame. It comes in two sizes 27.2mm and 31.6mm, and two lengths 280mm and 350mm.
Note: The Palladio Team Seatpost only fits saddles with industry-standard 7-millimeter diameter round-section rails. Saddles with oval rails require oval-rail end caps which are available as a 3T accessory.
