By now, you might have heard of Redshift Sports. The small outfit out of Philly has made a habit out of creating small, yet clever products to make riding more comfortable. Building on the success of the Shockstop shock-absorbing stem, Redshift has been working on a companion in the form of the Shockstop seat post.
After launching through an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, Redshift is still taking preorders, with delivery expected by January 2019 (to be filled in the order received). But along the way, backers voiced their opinion that they wanted infinite saddle angle adjustment, rather than the fixed positions offered by the prototype’s lateral adjustment system. Now, the seatpost features a more standard two bolt adjustment cradle with a more adjustable angle.
The post will still retail for $199 (though you can pre-order it now for $159.99), and offers 35mm of travel with user adjustable spring rates and preload for tuning. Available only in 27.2mm diameter, the post will include a shim to fit your specified seat tube size.
