The 3T Stylus is a fresh new take on the 2-bolt seatpost. The transition from the pillar to the saddle clamp assembly is a finned, rearward swoosh suggestive in shape of the classic one-bolt posts of yore. But the clamp bolts are deployed to either side of the saddle-support cradle, conferring greater stability and easier adjustment.
Stylus‑0 models place the seat clamp assembly in line with the seatpost for zero setback. Many athletes seeking outright speed favor this more forward position on the bike. Some frame designers are also specifying a slacker seat tube so riders can set their bike up with an inline post, which is lighter than a setback post. Top model Stylus‑0 Ltd is a monocoque in high-modulus carbon-fiber, finished in high-gloss black with the 3T Ltd silver stripe.
Stylus‑25 models set the clamp center 25 mm behind the centerline of the seatpost, for riders who prefer to sit further back on the bike. Top model Stylus‑25 Ltd is a monocoque in high-modulus carbon-fiber, finished in high-gloss black with the 3T Ltd edition silver stripe.
Forward and aft positioning on the bike plays a large role in how much power a rider generates. Although a more relaxed (slacker) position is more comfortable, if you want to generate maximum speed without the discomfort of sitting on the nose of the saddle, try a forward position using the 3T Stylus LTD 0 Seatpost. This post is reminiscent of a traditional 2-bolt seatpost with a neutral -- 0 degree -- setback, clean lines, and weight-minimizing carbon construction.
Unlike the 2-bolt seatposts of yore, this post utilizes bolts set on either side of the cradle, which allows for easier micro adjustments and extra stability. Both the shaft and saddle clamp are monocoque high-modulus carbon fiber and the bolts are steel, making this the lightest seatpost in the Stylus line.
The Stylus 0 places the seat clamp assembly directly in line with the seatpost shaft. This 0 degree of setback is optimal when your frame design has a slacker seat tube: it is lighter in weight as compared to a setback post and shifts your position forward to compensate for your frame design. The 0 degree setback is also ideal if you want a more forward TT position on your already aggressive bike frame to maximize power.
