CANE CREEK EESILK PREMIUM SUSPENSION SEATPOST
PRICE: R4 500 / WEIGHT: 293G WWW.ISIKOSPORTS.CO.ZA
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.
