The 3T Stylus 25 Team Stealth posts feature a carbon fibre shaft that is bonded into an alloy head which is setback at 25mm and finned rearward away from the post itself. The Stylus offers a new fresh take on the 2-bolt seat post designs.
The transition from the pillar to the saddle clamp assembly is a finned, rearward away from the shaft. But the clamp bolts are deployed to either side of the saddle support cradle, conferring greater stability and easier adjustment. Stylus 25 models set the clamp center 25mm behind the centerline of the seatpost, for riders who prefer to sit further back on the bike.
About Seat Posts
A good quality seat post will save weight and hold your saddle securely. Seatposts are made in various materials, alloy and carbon being the two most common, alloy posts are lightweight, durable and cost efficient, while carbon posts are the popular choice for top end machines. Seat posts vary in where they hold the saddle relative to their own centre line so make sure you have enough adjustment on your saddle rails to allow for this or you could end up with your saddle too far forwards. A seat post needs to fit your frame exactly and are measured by as little as 0.2mm. When choosing a new one, either read off the measurement from your old seat post or measure it carefully with a vernier calliper. Make sure you lubricate the frame (unless they're carbon fibre) before insertion or you'll struggle to get it out again.
