Cycling Weekly Verdict

If you’re paying close to £300 for a setapost, you’d want it to be flawless. And the Enve post isn’t far off. The construction and the finish are suitably high-end, while the styling really separates it from other posts, most notable due to the elegant clamp design. But the clamp isn’t just good looking; it really did make securing and adjusting the saddle very simple indeed. As for the ride, it’s a comfy post that dampens and absorbs a treat, making it well-suited to on and off-road adventures. If you can get past the cost, the Enve seatpost is a real winner.
