EA50 Offset

The Easton EA50 Seatpost is packed with features for its price. Two-bolt head is easy to adjust and holds the saddle securely. Taperwall aluminum construction keeps extra material where it is needed for strength and makes the walls thinner where strength

Black, not available in shorter length

I have one of the early model, 26.8mm EA50's (with the single bolt). At 264g, it has been a very supportive, light seatpost. I believe it has actually served to re-inforce my frame, and that the 350mm length has played a part in that. I ride a Raleigh Technium, and the EA50 made the seat-tube noticeably stiffer. I don't know why Easton went to a 2-bolt design, because the single bolt has always worked perfectly. Easton doesn't seem to give much information on their proprietary aluminum, but their stuff is always good. I believe my post is a 9 or 10mm offset. I paid about 40 dollars for the post back in 2000-or-so, and have used it ever since. No need to ever upgrade. I love components that get it right the first time.
