Your next upgrade.

While the new 2015 Race Face Next SL Seatpost moves away from Race Face's signature single-adjustment head clamp design in the name of shaving some weight, it's still a marvelous piece of engineering that's at home on almost any high-end mountain bike.

Race Face optimized the 3k-carbon weave of the Next SL post for the lowest possible weight, without sacrificing strength. The shaft meets impact and toughness criteria that far exceeds what it will ever experience on most of the cross-country and trail machines on which it will find itself, yet it's still one of the lightest posts on the market. This is partially due to the new Hunter head clamp design, a two-bolt system that allows for extremely easy saddle installation, and adjustment of it once it's on board, with a tool-free interface for quick-mid trail position tuning.

The head accommodates both 7mm- and 9mm-rails, while providing a full 35mm of support to avoid saddle failure. The Race Face Next SL Seatpost has no setback, is available in 27.2, 30.9, and 31.6mm diameters, and one length: 400mm.

Proper post...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Well made, good fit, easy adjustment, light, absorbs vibration, and will clamp down on most seat rails for a no-slip fit. I'm using this post on my Niner hardtail, and it works very well.

Lightweight. Strong. Does it's job.

Strong. Seat never slips as long as you have it tightened down to the appropriate specifications. And that all you really need in a seatpost. Being super light weight is always a nice bonus as well though.

Simple, Well Executed Design

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's a testament to how bad some seatposts designs are that when you get a good one again it's actually worth noting. The clamp on this post is a simple two-bolt design that is easily accessible with any standard allen key. The clamps also hold all manner of rails...from alloy to wider wrapped-carbon style ones with no issues. It's a part you tend to forget about until you need to switch or adjust a saddle, but when you do it's nice to have one as well executed as this.

Seatposts should be "set and forget" and that's exactly what the RF Next post does. It handles standard and the tall carbon rails without any problems, and has a nice give to it even with the 30.9mm size. I love two bolt posts...they make tiny adjustments so easy.
