Genetic Heritage Seatpost review
The Heritage is a classic-shaped seatpost made from 6061 aluminium with a high-polish ﬁnish and subtle laser-etched logos, giving it the look of something much pricier.
The layback head (offset by 17.5mm) has a single bolt ﬁxing which is simple to use and, combined with the serrated surfaces of the clamp and post, makes small angle adjustments easy too. At 277g it’s no ﬂyweight, but we haven’t seen many posts at under £20 that are – and none that match the quality of the Heritage.
As a cheap alternative to a classic post to be used on a steel frame or a winter bike, it can’t really be bettered. It’s 350mm long, with a 27.2mm diameter, and is available in silver or black.
