Lynskey Performance Designs Titanium seatpost
The Press Release gushing in full…
Not only is this beauty among the lightest seatposts available, it is also incredibly durable. In fact, Lynskey are so confident in the function and durability of the seatpost that they offer a “NO QUESTIONS GUARANTEE”. Should your Lynskey seatpost not function correctly or fail in any manner for any reason they will replace the post or the failed parts.
The post is intended for either road or off-road use and provides the fundamental requirements of a high performance seatpost: comfort, durability, lightweight, and ease of use.
The shaft is crafted from aerospace grade 3al-2.5v titanium. It provides an unsurpassed combination of comfort and durability.
The head design is very lightweight and functional. The 2 bolt design allows infinite and simple seat angle adjustment. This concept also guarantees no slippage of the saddle angle during riding as it does not rely on friction to hold the saddle angle in place.
However possibly the best part of this design is the tension rod that extends through the titanium shaft and transfers 100 percent of the stress during riding directly to the shaft. In other words this head design does not rely on bonding or welding to hold the head on the shaft. Historically bonded or welded head assemblies have been a potential problem area for titanium seatposts.
There are 2 6061 aluminum sleeves bonded into the top of the shaft using a Loctite epoxy adhesive. These sleeves create the needed surface area for the carbon fiber cradle to rest in.
Each post comes with 4mm ball-nosed allen wrench for ease of assembly
