There isn't a bicycle component that hasn't also been made in carbon fibre, the material that has rejuvenated our desire to buy the same stuff we already have in a new finish – in the same way iPods have made white consumer electronics more desirable.
The above is the 200g in-line K-Force carbon post from FSA (Full Speed Ahead). It features a one-piece carbon fibre construction with no heavy alloy sleeve inserts or suspect bonding to worry about.
The SB-0 version has zero layback and is ideal for riders with a shorter torso who don't need the extra reach of the SB-25 model (with 25mm of layback).
The head assembly has a twin-bolt, micro adjustable clamp which ensures a perfect fit and absolutely no chance of the saddle slipping once installed. With stainless hardware for rust-free performance, this is bling that'll stay blinging right through the ugliest, wettest winter.
