Us

Aiming to take adjustable posts further than just gravity riders, Specialized trimmed weight out of their first version of the adjustable post, and are making it standard spec on a wide range of mountain bikes for 2014. Even their short travel bikes are either specced or have cable routing for an adjustable post – confirming where the big S sit (get it…) in the benefits of an adjustable post.

Lighter, smoother and a super light lever actuation makes this post a real winner even aftermarket.

The seat clamp is one of the easiest to micro adjust and keep tight.

The Command Post Blacklite has three height settings: 125mm, 100mm, and 75mm. We find this extra handy as finding the right height is tricky at times when you’re really moving on the trails.

The tiny remote lever is slim enough to not clutter the handlebars.
