In addition to Moots, Dean is another Ti-specialist Colorado company that makes seat posts:

The Dean is a bit cheaper than Moots, but I can't vouch for it. I've got a Moots layback post on my Moots frame and it's real solid, very comfy and has a reasonable weight. Decals are a bit fragile though, but if they wear off, that's just saved weight, right?

You're smart for wanting a Ti post, you can go lighter, but a good Ti post is the best combination of comfort, durability, and weight.

Moots

I have a Moots 27.2 x 380mm in my GF RIG, it weighs 230 gram, is very comfy, I think it's not going to break ever and I love the welds! Titanium in my option is the no. 1 choice when it comes down to seatpost, it takes the edge of bumps and will creak less than aluminum.

Also recommend the Moots

A bit of a pain to mount some saddles, but comfy and totally reliable, my 27.2 x 380 came in at 232gms.

Bold Precision

May be worth a look depending on your requirements

Have been using their skewers without problem for 2 years now

They have 2 options, standard and ultra-light - all under 200g, except for the 350mm

Ultra-light gets you into New Ultimate weight realm at fraction of the price

Plus they do custom offsets and seatpost diameters

I use the Syncros Ti post. I have used several and it is the best. Light, nice looking, easy seat adjustments, durable. Unfortunately i do not think they make it anymore. I believe Syncros was bought several years back and pretty much got out of the Ti business.
