Today in Gravel Grinder News we have views on the new SRAM XPLR group, news of a carbon drop bar from Easton, and a new sealant from Finish Line. Let’s go!
The Roval Terra Carbon post has a definite smoothing effect upon the ride, if you have a fair amount of seat post extension with the bicycle you install it in. The compliance is there, but so is a perceptible amount of vibration reduction coming up through the saddle.
The Roval Terra Carbon Post is another device which has been designed to help with rider comfort. A seat post with some ‘give’, if you will. That is nothing new, of course, but Roval feels that their design does it better, so let’s see what it is that makes this seat post tic.
The Terra Carbon post looks like a standard carbon seat post, but this post has been designed with a special lay-up of carbon and has up to 18mm of vertical compliance, with the 20mm offset version, and is dependent upon the amount of seat post extension in a particular set up.
MG called the ShockStop seat post a ‘game changer’, and I would agree. It hits all points: Good looking, effective, and easily set up. If you’ve been shying away from riding gravel due to the roughness and vibrations, get the Redshift ShockStop post and match it with a ShockStop stem. You’ll be amazed at what control and comfort that set up will give you. Game changer indeed.
The Redshift Sports Shock Stop Seat Post is a sleek looking, compact design that promises the rider a vibration reduction and more comfort. T
