Ritchey WCS seatpost

Having recently released a new carbon 4 Axis stem (CW September 27) Ritchey continues to develop its carbon WCS product range with a new seatpost too. The same carbon monocoque construction as the original WCS carbon post suggests an ?if it ain?t broke then don?t fix it? approach, and rightly so, as the predecessor is an excellent product.

There is however a completely redesigned clamp, embracing simplicity and neatness. A single-bolt clamp system means seat installation and fore/aft and tilt adjustments are a doddle, and the carbon cradle that forms the base of the clamp concentrates the rider?s weight on the post, where the strength is, improving reliability.
