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. Stylus‑0 Pro is the value model of the range, fabricated in aluminum alloy with a shot-peened, black-anodized finish and the white 3T Pro 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. Stylus‑25 Pro is the value model of the range, fabricated in aluminum alloy with a shot-peened, black-anodized finish and the white 3T Pro stripe.
The Stylus 0 Pro Seatpost falls under 3T's new zero setback post collection. The Italian component designer wanted to create a 'fresh new take on the 2-bolt seatpost,' which is exactly what was accomplished with the new post's clamping interface. This sleek design provides a solid, lightweight base for mounting your saddle, and it relies on the same attention to detail 3T is known for.
The new Stylus 0 Pro Seatpost was constructed from a lightweight and durable shot-peened aluminum. Long a staple material choice among professional cyclists for its durability, aluminum also provides low weight and smooth riding characteristics. Atop the post, 3T added its refined 2-bolt alloy head. This new finned clamping interface is where the post really shines, as 3T spent considerable time getting both the look and functionality just right. The alloy head features a rearward 'swoosh' that was modeled after the classic single-bolt designs of the good old days, keeping that traditional aesthetic alive.
The two clamping bolts were placed on either side of the saddle-support cradle, resulting in a secure, stable clamping interface that's easy to adjust. 3T's Stylus 0 models place the seat clamp assembly directly in line with the seatpost for zero setback. 3T's reasoning for this design is that many cyclists prefer a neutral positioning in favor of being set back, which allows them to easily get forward on the saddle and down in an aerodynamic position.
The 3T Stylus 0 Pro Seatpost is available in lengths 280 and 350mm, with a 27.2 or 31.6mm diameter. The post comes in a shot-peened Black anodized finish and weighs around 225g (31.6mm x 280mm).
