Schmolke TLO Seatpost
Schmolke's insanely lightweight TLO (The Lightest One) seatpost range is manufactured to the highest standards of quality using the best carbon prepregs available in the market. The saddle clamp features eight points of contact for maximum security and load distribution. Additionally, the aluminum upper rail clamps are designed with chamfered edges which, combined with a large supporting carbon fiber lower rail clamp surface, ensures that carbon saddle rails are not unduly stressed. The M5 titanium bolts are designed as tension screws, strong enough take the stresses of aggressive riding and racing.
Schmolke seatposts feature varying wall thickness, contrasting with typical Asian-made posts which are cheaply manufactured with a constant wall thickness. The bulk of a TLO post's length is constructed with a mere 9 layers of carbon sheets, while the frame clamp section is reinforced with up to 17 layers. This design allows Schmolke to produce seatposts which are 50-100 grams lighter than competitors' seatposts of similar design, with no compromise in strength. To ensure the safety of all their products, Schmolke conforms to all current European testing standards, along with their own higher intensity in-house testing. Schmolke products are guaranteed to be free of material and manufacturing defects with a warranty period of 3 years.
