Strengths:    Solid, low flex, seat 100% can't tilt once set, low key stealth graphics.

Weaknesses:    Adjustment may be frustrating to the uninitiated.

Bottom Line:   
I came across the Ionic 25 Stealth because I wanted a light weight, low flex post which held the seat in position regardless. Basically the adjustment is via two toothed wheels which interlock. Setup the first time to the uninitiated is a pain in the proverbial, but once you get the hang of it its not so bad. The thing with the design is you can get the seat in exactly the right position, and it stays put, full stop. I am hard on my seats, sometimes I'm down on the nose other times pushing against the back, sooner or later the fixing bolts come loose and the seat moves out of adjustment. With this design all the bolts do is hold the mechanism in place they take no load, so are not inclined to work loose. It took me several attempts and hours to get the position right, but the benefit is your patience is rewarded by an exact long term position. Just don't expect your LBS to spend the time on it!
