Bicycling (South Africa) - - Birth Of An Icon - – G.L.

With more and more drop-bar bikes find­ing their way onto gravel, dirt, and bro­ken tar, com­pa­nies con­tinue to look for new ways to make those rides more com­fort­able over the long haul. Cane Creek’s lat­est con­tri­bu­tion: a slimmed-down ver­sion of its Thud­buster sus­pen­sion seat­post (a prod­uct that even­tu­ally faded with the rise of full-sus­pen­sion moun­tain bikes). The new ver­sion, the eeSilk, uses elas­tomer in­serts and svelte link­ages to add 20mm of com­pli­ance be­neath your butt. The post comes in a 27.2mm di­am­e­ter so it has some give, and ti­ta­nium hard­ware helps keep weight be­low the 300-gram mark.

TI HARD­WARE HELPS KEEP WEIGHT BE­LOW 300 GRAMS.
