It comes as no surprise that KCNC's Ti Pro Lite has been our most popular seatpost for quite some time. This post strikes an impressive balance between durability, low weight, and affordability. Recently, KCNC has expanded options to include a variety of colors, diameters, and lengths. Additionally, the rider weight limit is quite generous for a seatpost in this weight class.
This zero setback post features a lightweight, simple rail clamp design that allows for easy installation and adjustment. In designing this post, KCNC opted to use a variety of materials; the main tube is machined from high strength scandium aluminum, the clamp hardware from 7075 aluminum, and the clamp bolts are manufactured from 6/4 titanium. It should be noted that these titanium bolts are 6mm in diameter, where other manufacturers with similar seatpost designs use a more fragile 5mm bolt.
When installing this seatpost in a metal frame, we recommend applying grease to in the inside of the seattube to prevent corrosion and allow for easy installation. With composite frames, an assembly compound such as Tacx Dynamic Assembly Compound" Tacx Paste should be used. A 4mm hex wrench is required to adjust and tighten the rail clamp bolts, with a maximum torque rating of 5 Nm. The nature of the saddle rail clamp allows it to accommodate most standard round and oval saddle rail designs in steel, titanium, or aluminum.

Weird Color, but good Value

Bought the blue post and it doesnt match any other blue anodizing on my bike. That being said, it sure is light, especially for the money.

I bought this post as a replacement for a the stock carbon post on my trek. It is lighter, less expensive and comes with large M6 hardware.
