Turning into something even better.
The new Race Face Turbine Seatpost isn't just a new graphic on last year's Turbine — it's an all-new post with new materials, more strength, and a new clamp interface for even easier saddle installation and adjustment.
The new Turbine ditches the 7050-series alloy used in last year's model in favor of 2014-series alloy, boosting strength and fatigue resistance without compromising weight thanks to triple internal butting, 3D forging, and a shot-peen finish. The star of the show, however, is the new Hunter head rail clamp design. Fret not for the loss of RF's previous seatpost clamp design, which was already revered by many to be the most ingenious out there — RF promises this one is even better. Compatible with nearly all 7/8mm round rails or oval carbon rails, the Hunter head can easily accommodate the installation of a new saddle without being disassembled, which is a major hassle associated with most designs out there. The thumbscrew interface allows for up to 18 degrees of angle adjustment, and for a cherry-on-top of user friendliness, the post includes a tapered rubber grommet that can you can shimmy down onto the seatpost clamp to prevent gunk build-up or water entry.
The Race Face Turbine seatpost comes in the color Black, is 400mm long, and is available in 27.2mm, 30.9mm, and 31.6mm diameters. It weighs approximately 260 grams and is currently available only as a non-offset post.

Great fit and finish.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Finishing a new bike build with parts from CC and they were out of Thomson post and stem in the size I needed (my go to cockpit hardware). Decided to give the Race Face a whirl... Quality, fit and finish seems to be on par with other hardware in this price range. I'm expecting great durability but time will tell. I was surprised at the retail packaging. I'm used to the cloth bag that the Thomson's come in--this came in a big fancy box just like the Turbine dropper post that I got for my snowbike.
