Description of Schmolke TLO Carbon MTB Seatpost - 3k Carbon

The Lightest One!

Just like all other products of Schmolkes TLO range their seatposts are manufactured to suit highest loads using the best prepregs available in the market (T1000). Its head clamps the saddle’s rails on eight points. The aluminum parts have chamfered edges, which, together with the large supporting carbon fibre surface, ensures that even fragile carbon rails are not unduly stressed.

The 5 mm Ti6Al4V titanium bolts are anti-fatigue bolts, strong enough even for mountain bike use. The actual tube’s highest stressed sections consists of 17 layers of extremely thin carbon fibre prepreg, while its less stressed sections are sufficiently strong with as little as 9 layers. Unfortunately this is a complicated design, too complicated for cheap Asian production. Seatposts built to a price in China usually come with constant wall-thickness. This makes production easy, it also makes the resulting seatpost heavier than necessary. Seatposts in particular require hundreds and hundreds of destruction tests to arrive at the lightest possible solution for every length and diameter without sacrificing the final products strength.

Notes: Schmolke's seatposts are reinforced where they are stressed by the seat clamp, hence their range of adjustment is limited. Do not buy a long seatpost to cut it to size. They want to adjust strength and length of your seatpost to your requirements as good as possible; hence you need the seatpost length as measured from the top of the frame to the middle of the saddle’s rails. Longer seatposts require more raw material, therefore posts longer than 320 mm cost more. For the right length choice please use the following table:

overall length in mm 250 280 300 320 350 375 400
minimum insert in mm 75 80 80 80 85 85 90
visible length in mm 125-175 150-200 160-220 180-240 195-265 220-290 230-310

The seatpost is allowed up to a rider weight of 80 kg! Separately reinforced, shorter or longer posts are available on request at no extra charge. Please contact to our customer service center.

Symbolic picture: The pictured seatpost is the 1K carbon version. The other versions feature a different surface finish.
