yet another suspension seatpin

http://www.gravelcyclist.com/bicycle-tech/press-release-redshift-sports-release-the-shockstop-suspension-seatpost/

i like it, looks simple and elegant. other parallelogram designs <a href=https://www.cxmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/issue-25-suspension-cane-creek-thudbuster-img_4610-e-copy_1.jpg target=_blank>look much klunkier</a> and that pivotless specialized design <a href=https://www.cxmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/issue-25-suspension-specialized-cgr-img_4605-e-copy_1.jpg target=_blank>just looks fugly</a>.

still a bit portly @ ~500g, though -- they should look into a spring made of Ti or even some sort of composite.

Have you seen the Ergon? It's the most elegant looking one. Downside might be durability and thus safety (don't want broken carbon up my a$$) because it's intended for road only. I'd be tempted to put it on my hardtail otherwise. There are knockoffs on ebay too, though they are even sketchier.

Looks interesting, looks like it isn't for sale in N. America.

There are plenty of places...

...where you can buy one and have it shipped here. The biggest downside to the Ergon post is the price.

As for the Redshift post, they're planning a carbon version of their stem, so they'll probably do the same with the post at some point, which should bring the weight down.
