Extend Your Ride, With More Compliance

These posts make great enhancements to gravel or mixed surface bikes by reducing the chatter transmitted from the surface to the rider and can be tuned to rider weight through a simple elastomer change.

  • Bolt-on compliance: Up to 35mm of travel to add comfort and compliance on gravel and mixed-surface rides without adding unnecessary weight to the bike.
  • Parallel-linkage design: Parallel linkage technology stays in the direct path of the natural travel of the rear wheel. As a bump lifts the back of the bicycle, the rear wheel pushes up and forward into the rider.
  • Easy elastomer change: The eeSilk+ seatpost can be tuned for different rider weights and riding styles by selecting the elastomer that best fits rider needs and preferences.

The eeSilk+ seatpost is shipped with a Medium elastomer installed. Extra Soft, Soft, Firm and Extra Firm elastomers are sold separately.

<110lb (<50kg) = #1 Elastomer*
100-160lb (45-73kg) = #3 Elastomer*
150-210lb (68-95kg) = #5 Elastomer
200-250lb (90-113kg) = #7 Elastomer*
200-250lb (90-113kg) = #9 Elastomer*

Additional eeSilk+ Elastomers can be found here

The eeSilk+ seatpost works great on my Giant Revolt Advanced bike. It really smooths out the sharp edged bumps on our rough and cracked paved roads. It foes the job without calling attention to itself in any negative way. My bike came with a carbon seatpost. With my height, there was not much exposed seatpost. The eeSilk+ is much more comfortable and allows me to contiue pedaling across bumps that I previously would have chosen to lift off the seat.

    Performs as advertised. Can barely tell it’s there. No bobbing. No issues with my seat post bag.

    Actually, what my mind was wondering on the first ride was why my feet were vibrating so much?! Turns out they weren’t vibrating any more than usual. But since the stem and seat post were soaking everything up, my feet were the only part of me still feeling the rattle.

    Once my mind adjusted to the new sensation, I began to really, really enjoy my ride. A few hundred kms later and I’m very happy I made the purchase.

    This seat post is simple and lightweight and takes the edge off especially on rough gravel.

    Purchased this for my gravel bike but the motion moves me too far rearward which I don’t like. Turns out that I can get just as much comfort out if mt RDI carbon seatpost and Ergon SMC core saddle and save weight too…

    Bought the aluminum version for my wife’s gravel bike. It’s heavy but she now likes to ride her gravel bike. I purchased the elastomer according to her weight. It’s an easy swap. I rode her bike just to se how it feels and it really does absorb all the small bumps.
