Titec XC Pro Seatpost

2.67/5 (3 Reviews)
MSRP : $54.00

Product Description

The XC Pro comes stock with a triple butted 7075-T6 quill and our new single bolt Simon™ clamp. The Simon clamp features our exclusive Lock-Down™ no-slip clamp interface, which securely seats the clamp assembly to eliminate saddle rock. With a huge adjustment range of 48 degrees to accommodate even the most relaxed seat tube angles, proprietary low profile to eliminate saddle flex interference and closely spaced teeth for maximum angle adjusment, Simon shines where other single-bolt designs don't. Your choice is simple - Simon!

Strengths:    strengths?

Weaknesses:    the single bolt kept getting loose, it had been replaced twice. the top clamp piece actually SNAPPED mid-ride at about 25 mph DOWNHILL over some pretty hairy terrain. Ever lose your seat and have to hold it between your legs while riding that fast over rocks 18" from a cliff? Don't bother.

Bottom Line:   
If you have a bike with this post on it, get rid of it. Don't think that it might not happen to you. Had this bolt snapped 30 yards before it did, i probably would be typing this review in a full body cast from the local hospital. Not only am i pissed off that this thing broke in the first place, but i can't just go to the titec site and order a clamp...i have to buy a whole new seat post. Shyeah, right. They won't even answer emails!
I'm driving 20 minutes south and checking out the showroom at the Easton factory.

Strengths:    Light weight, secure seat mount

Weaknesses:    Lack of strength

Bottom Line:   
At best a waste of money, at worst a dangerous seat post. It broke while riding uphill on unremarkable terrain. I weigh only 170# and this type of failure is inexcusable. The XC Pro was the replacement seat post for the original Titec post that came with my bike (the original was the x-wing and it broke also!!). I'm surprised Titec is still in business.

Strengths:    Looks great, strength, very low weight,stiff,bolt

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I got this seatpost cause it was very cheap, only 250 gr at 30.9mm/400mm, and it works great with the fizik gobi. Even on fast singletracks it works very well. It's stiff and I love it. Buy it now!
