Strength:

Weight

Weakness:

Finish on topedges is sharp, damaged 2 sets of bibs on the edges, adjustment teeth are not deep enough so you really have to crank down on retainer or seat moves.

Product is light and seems strong enough however, the finish is crap on the top area.

Strength:

Light, strong easy set up.

Weakness:

price point could be lower.

I have two of these, one on my Merlin Road frame and one on my Tsunami Compact 3 full carbon. The post is light, comfortable, and solid. Set up was a snap on both bikes. I really don't know what the other reviewers are complaining about. I've been through 5 saddles on the two bikes, and rebuild the bikes every winter. I have _never_ had a problem with any slippage of the saddle. I commute almost daily on the merlin, and compete in 20 sanctioned races a year, not including training 'event'. I probably put 10K miles a year between the two bikes, and never once had an issue with the posts.

I'm giving the maximum overall rating to offset the obvious bias of the other reviews.

Strength:

none

Weakness:

it doesn't hold the saddle in position

2 hours of use into a 120 mile race and the saddle starts pointing to the sky. two attempts to re-tighten but no use and had to stand for 25 miles before i could replace it. Useless.

Strength:

Light Weight

Weakness:

Clamp is poorly designed and not reliable,

Light & decent looking, I bought this stem to shave a few grams. Just like the reviewer below the saddle tilted skyward after a few hours, I too added more torque the second time, same result. The post is absolute crap, I'm inclined to just eat the cost rather than send it back for a replacement. Come on Easton, I'm not a heavy, 170 lbs, what gives??

Strength:

Weight

Weakness:

Flimsy clamp and saddle tilt.

Bought this post to save weight...big mistake!! Midway through the first ride, the seat jumped several groves and tilted "skyward" adjusted the seat and torqued it, after 3 hours, same issue!! The composite groves can not support the saddle BUYER BEWARE. This post is junk!

Used a EC70 for years with no issues!! Should have stuck with what works instead of saving 40 grams in weight.
