Our review

A tough well-made inline post with a long list of colour choices
Skip to view product specifications

Available in seven anodised colours, this is a tough 3D forged, CNC-turned and milled 6061 aluminium post. It’s created in one piece and features a tough clamp design fastened by two oversized titanium bolts. It’s only available in a 400mm length.


The quality is superb and it’s tough enough for any type of trail use – the shaft walls are butted thicker front and rear than at the sides. We’d say the emphasis should be on tough rather than ‘X Lite’. If you’re not sure about the inline clamp allowing you to get the right seat position, look for a saddle with long rails.
