Strengths:    Lightweight,eye-catching part,looks and feels strong

Weaknesses:    Watch out to clamp your seat right!It's not easy but once it's done you won't need to touch anything else afterwards.

Bottom Line:   
If you want something unique on your bike,go for this part!Wonderful crafted,deutsche grundligkheit!(or something like that!*haha*)
It fits really good,well finished and it's still alu!!I don't like carbon for the moment,once it you crash once,it's just garbage...
If you want a light,strong and reliable seatpost and you don't care to pay for it,don't hesitate and go for it!

The Tune Seatpost is a very lightweight aluminium (7075 T6) seatpost. It weights 185 gr by 27,2 X 340mm. The seatpost tube offers different wall-thickness. The walls are thicker on the front and on the back off the tube. It's avaible in 340mm and 380mm and in 26,8; 27,0; 27,2; 31,4; 31,6;31,8. It offers a two bolt clamp mechanism. the Tune logo is lazered.

The clamp mechanism is very minimal to save weight. But it's workmanship is not very precise. The saddle rails do not fit precisly in the clamp mechanism, so you are not able to install the saddle correctly. You can install the saddle on the clamp but it does not fit perfectly. You have to take care about not overtighten the AL- bolts, because, if one bolt breaks, the saddle will get off the seatpost.

Bottom Line:   
The Tune seatpost is a lightweight seatpost, this is the most advantage of this seatpost. The clamp mechanism is not very durable and it is not manufactured precisly. In my opinion there are better seatposts on the market, if you want a lightweight, try the Moots. I give the Tune seatpost 3 stars.

I tried a Syncros and a Moots Seatpost. Both seatposts offers a better clamp on mechanism. The Syncros is heavier than the Tune (about 60 gr). The Moots weights about the same, but it looks more durable than the Tune. It offers a better clamp mechanism, which fixes the saddle perfectly.

Bike Setup:   
Ti hardtail with front suspension. Saddle: Selle Italia Flite.
