Moots is all about that beautifully finished premium look and performance feel of titanium. But until now if you wanted to get the smooth ride of ti in Moots’ own signature Cinch seatpost, carbon railed saddles were off limits. That changes now, with Moots partnering up with ENVE for modern seat guts.
Moots Carbon Compatible Ti Post + ENVE one-bolt guts
Chances are pretty high that if you are in the market for the smooth ride and durability of a premium Moots Cinch post that already retails for $355 in its standard guise, you are probably riding a top-spec saddle too. But the seatpost head internals – affectionately referred to as the seat guts – of the Cinch post only work with 7mm round rails. So no fancy 7×9 oval carbon rails for you. Until now…
Moots got plenty of customer feedback looking for a carbon saddle rail option. So they were able to source the round one-bolt seatpost head internals from ENVE (who has since moved onto a twin-bolt, non-round design for their own carbon posts), and update their own construction, machining their ti post head to create a perfect fit for the Moots Carbon Compatible Ti Post.
It still doesn’t come cheap starting at the same $355
$430, but it does give titanium aficionados more options. The new post can be made in 27.2 or 30.9mm diameters, in straight or 19/15mm offset layback options, and in 280, 340, or 380mm lengths. You can even get it in custom anodized colors for a bit more. Each of the Carbon Rail Compatible seatposts are made-to-order, so it’ll take 4-6 weeks to get one for your dream bike.
