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 Team has a carbon-fiber shaft bonded into an alloy head and is finished in high-gloss black with the 3T Team red 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 Team has a carbon-fiber shaft bonded into an alloy head and is finished in high-gloss black with the 3T Team red stripe.
3T describes its new Stylus 0 Team Seatpost as a 'fresh new take on the two-bolt seatpost.' We fully agree, as the sleek post provides a solid, lightweight pillar for mounting your perch, and it possesses the same classic styling that you've come to expect from 3T.
The new Stylus 0 Team seatpost was constructed from a blend of lightweight and durable carbon fiber and aluminum. For the shaft, 3T used its ultra-stiff carbon fiber. Long a preferred choice for its smooth, damping ride characteristics, 3T's carbon provides you with the ultimate blend of low weight, stiffness, and comfort. Atop the carbon post, 3T added its refined two-bolt alloy head. This new finned clamping interface is where the new 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 ol' 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 professional cyclists prefer a neutral positioning in favor of being set back, which allows them to easily get forward on the saddle and down into an aerodynamic position.
The 3T Stylus 0 Team Seatpost is available in 280, 350, and 420mm lengths, with either a 27.2 or 31.6mm diameter. The post comes in either a UD Matte Black finish that features a Red stripe down the length of the post, or a Stealth colorway without the stripe. The post weighs around 195g (31.6mm x 280mm).
