Cinelli have certainly made a visually striking seatpost, with what begins as a standard shaft splitting as it approaches the clamp to form a pair of outstretched ‘arms’ holding your saddle aloft. Fitting a saddle to it is harder than it could be, though.
There's no thumb wheel on the enclosed front bolt so you’ll need an 8mm box spanner to set the saddle angle and to tighten the clamp fully on the saddle rails. The wide range of fore/aft adjustment is admirable, but it can't compensate for the high weight and poor vibration damping on this high-priced, outdated post.
