The Palladio Pro is an amazing addition to my bike set up. The design is awesome and its slightly lighter than the cheap carbon seatpost I originally had on my bike. It is made completely out of aluminum so the tech specs on this website need to be adjusted. The new clamp design never altered my saddle angle during even the toughest of rides and I doubt that it would be possible. I have full confidence it its durability. The only problem I had was that the white paint can chip off fairly easy. Mine slipped into the frame because of a cheap seat clamp and scratched away at the paint. The print is still readable however. I vouch for this seatpost if you don't mind having carbon fiber as your saddle's buddy.
