The singular red stripe delineating 3T's Team series of components is an undeniably powerful statement. But there's something to be said for the raciness and sheer sex appeal of black-on-black that gets our hearts pounding. 3T is now making available their Dorico Team Seatpost in a finish that is more than befitting of our wildest carbon fiber dreams.
The 3T Dorico Team Seatpost is a classic setback post that follows the same time-tested Grecian architectural inspirations of 3T's best-selling Doric post. Very similar in appearance to both the LTD and Pro series of seatposts, the Dorico Team is a mid-range post that combines the strengths of both the aforementioned — the shock-absorbing unidirectional carbon fiber shaft of the LTD and the 7075 aluminum carrier of the Pro, resulting in a seatpost that is as durable and time-honored as the Parthenon columns from which the Dorico owes its name. The Dorico also uses titanium hardware to keep the post's weight under 220 grams (31.6 x 280mm post).
Unlike the similarly constructed 3T Doric Seatpost, the Dorico has 25 millimeters of setback, which is perfect if you have longer legs and struggle to dial in a comfortable saddle position. The Dorico uses a classic two-bolt clamp for keeping your saddle in place. It's hardly fancy, but adjusting your saddle angle shouldn't ever be a complicated affair — simply tighten the rear bolt and loosen the front bolt to angle your saddle up, and perform the reverse to lower your angle.
The Dorico Team Seatpost comes in a White or Gloss Black. The 350mm shaft comes in 27.2 and 31.6mm lengths.
