Strengths:    hmm looks good.. carbon fibre absorbs most small bumps & vibrations.. Truvativ/SRAM Brand & Graphics..

Weaknesses:    weak bolts, heavier/same weight with most Aluminum Seatposts & 2x - 3x the price.. clamp bolt was bent & aluminum barrel dislodge & stripped half me & my bike fell about a meter & half from ramp.. the fall was not even worthy of YouTube fame to be spectacular enough.. the bike fell on me so the bike was lucky enough to fall on something soft, cushy & angry..

Bottom Line:   
you can find lighter / cheaper aluminum seatposts for a fraction of the price.. you can get more reliable & lighter carbon seat post with little or no difference to price point.. hmm.. mediocre product.. just looks good.. save up for titanium seatposts or go cheap & reliable aluminum..
