- Specialized COBL GOBL-R Carbon Seatpost
I’ve just put one in my 2012 specialized secteur – off the bat, utterly fantastic. Doesn’t act as suspension at the back end, more acts like a load of padding so you still know you’ve gone over something but it just smooths it out a bit which is enough for me to gain a fair amount more composure on rough descents and go a touch quicker.
I’ve never tried another carbon post though so I’ve got no comparison other than with alloy posts, but it’s streets ahead of those.Posted 4 years agoesher shoreMember
was skeptical but have tested during post-build test rides on custom road builds for my customers
its actually very effective in use over rough ground (cobbles or most UK roads if we are being honest…the government does not want to repair our broken roads!)
I own CF seatposts and high end aluminium alloy posts in comparison
not reason why it would not work on a mountain bike hardtail, but no idea about the “warranty” of using a road product on a mountain bike?Posted 4 years ago
