The head clamps the saddle at 8 points. In order not to strain sensitive carbon saddle rails excessively, a slight rounding of the aluminium clamping parts and a large carbon bearing surface were developed for these seat posts.
Due to a carbon fibre layer structure adapted to each length, there are between 10-19 layers of carbon fibre at each point of the seat post. By this method the best possible weight can be reached on the one hand, on the other hand the desired stability can be guaranteed.
Since normal seatposts are built with the same number of layers at each point, the Schmolke seatposts can score here with a weight advantage. Schmolke guarantees the stability of the support at the specified rider weights through test bench tests for each variant of the support. The Schmolke Carbon seat posts can only be adjusted within a certain range in the frame! So you cannot order a long seat post and saw it off as you like as with simpler models.
The 5 mm Ti6Al4V titanium bolts are designed as expansion bolts in order to withstand MTB loads undamaged. The inside diameter of this support fits Di2 batteries.
The innovation of the Setback seatpost is the 10mm Setback, so the clamping head is shifted backwards. This makes this model ideal for compact frame riders who want to optimize their seating position. In addition, the power transmission to the drive can be improved by shifting the seating position behind the bottom bracket.
Since the load is not quite so strong for racing bike seat posts, a few grams can be saved here in comparison to the MTB seat post with the same configuration.

TLO stands for "The Lightest One". Only the highest quality fibre (T1000) is used here. Its tensile strength is about 16% higher than that of the T800. In addition, an even more complex layer structure makes this record series possible. Even lighter than SL and without compromises in terms of load-bearing capacity and stiffness.
For stock items and orders without comments, this item is delivered as standard for a maximum driver weight of 75kg to provide our customers with the lightest variant. If your maximum driver weight is to be higher, please specify the maximum driver weight when ordering so that we can supply you with the appropriate item.
