The MEGA CNC Seatpost is part of the new components created by 8bar Bikes called "MEGA", you can see more bike parts with this name, all of them are high quality and superlight to reduce the weight of your bike and keeping your bike strong.

This seatpost comes in matte black color, here you have the technical specifications:
  • lightweight 6061 T-6 Aluminium
  • CNC machined
  • lightweight clamping system
  • 0mm offset
  • one piece forged clamp and post
  • 27,2mm diameter
  • 300mm length
  • weight: 175g
One of the most interesting things in this seatpost is the clamping system, really easy to install and adjust to your saddle, and really really strong! We have tested this seatpost with a Selle Royal Contour saddle, a classic and nice saddle in white pearl color.
