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

    This seat post is a game changer when your spending long days in the saddle. Makes long distance bike travel so much more comfortable.

    This is a quality addition to my gravel bike. I had a dropper post and switched to the eeSilk because I ride some rough trails and gravel roads. I do not notice any bob on the pedal stroke. Highly reccomended!

    I really like the seat post. As a heavier rider was not certain how it would feel under heavy pedaling. Was very pleased that it feels like a normal seat post, very solid, no pedal bob, maybe just a bit more comfortable even on hard climbs. Now when going on gravel, over bridges and the like it really smooths out the road, like taking 5 lbs of pressure out of your tires. Highly recommend. Note I weigh 215 lbs and use a #7 elastomer.

    Feels great. Smooths out the road rumble, but doesn’t feel squishy. My back is happy!

Seat post is light and comfortable. Had problems with the seat post sliding in my steel seat tube until I applied some carbon grease. The mounting mechanism is difficult to access with some saddles as there's a front wing-nut that needs to be tighten by hand. Once that's in place it's just a matter of tightening up the one bolt. Problem is that bolt would not stay tight so I had to constantly stop and retighten but I did end up losing it on a ride last fall -- not good to be miles from the trailhead without a saddle. The replacement that CC sent had Loctite pre-applied so I guess they've attempted to address the problem.
