XLC SP-S08 Suspension Seatpost
by Anonymous user on 02/09/2020

Fitted to my hybrid e-bike, just nicely takes the sting out of those nasty bumps that otherwise go straight to the base of your spine. Hardly noticeable on smooth tarmac, just as it should be.

Best thing since sliced bread.
by Anonymous user on 25/06/2020

Prior to fitting this seat post to my bike I was due to have an operation for a hernia. Since then I have found it so much more comfortable that I have not had any more trouble and have therefore cancelled my appointment. Highly recommend this seat post to anyone.

Seatposts Guide

What are seatposts?

The seatpost is the extendable metal rod that slots into your bike’s frame, with a clamp at the top to hold your saddle.

Who needs a seatpost?

Every bike has a seatpost, but a common reason for fitting a new one is to get a longer post for a leggy rider. Weight saving is another prime reason for upgrading.

What are the choices?

You need to pick the right seatpost width for your frame, but then you will have a choice of materials, from practical aluminium to weight-saving carbon. Mountain bikers can also opt for dropper posts, which are tremendously useful out on the trails.

What should I buy with them?

You might need a different seatpost clamp to go with your new seatpost and hold it firm in your frame.

Anything else?

Finding out which seatpost width you need can be a tricky business. With luck it will be stamped on the inside of your bike’s seat tube. It is measured down to tenths of millimetres, so eyeballing it with the tape measure won’t work.
