The new Enve Composite seat post is probably one of the best looking seat posts on the market. Designed for both road and off-road applications, the one-piece, strong, carbon design showcases form, function, and beauty. It seems all Enve seat posts are elegant, have ample adjustment options, are easy on the eyes, and comfortable on your ride. They come in various diameters (27.2mm, 30.9mm, 31.6mm, or 34.9mm), at a length of 400mm, with a zero or 25mm setback. The 27.2mm, 25mm setback we have tested today weighs in at 198 grams uncut and retails for $279.
Don’t let the price sway you! There is no doubt that this seat post is expensive, however, the versatility cannot be matched. All Enve seat posts can be configured with standard or oversize rails, installation or adjustments are simple, and the strong pedaling platform ensures you feel secure with your bike while pedaling. Out of the box, the Enve Composite comes assembled with standard rail hardware and a bag of 10×7 wedges for oversize saddles. I used the oversize rail wedges for my Selle Italia Carbon on my Lynsky and the installation was not a problem. Adjustments were also easy and can be done with one hand.

On the trail, the 25mm setback is just enough to give me the leverage needed for an excellent transfer of power while seated. The slightly curved construction simply looks gorgeous – it truly was love at first ride. Check out the pictures below:
