PRO Vibe Limited Edition Carbon Seatpost
PRO's Vibe Limited Edition Seatpost was developed as the premium Vibe Carbon post. The Limited Edition Vibe series features the best UD carbon fiber, distinct graphics and features, and Shimano integration. In this case, the seatpost was designed with an internal mount for a Di2 seatpost-style battery. The Vibe aluminum seat rail clamp adjustment system carries over due to it's incredibly secure, yet easy to adjust for fore-aft position and ideal saddle angle. The two bolt design clamps firmly on standard rails and the molded UD carbon of the post-top, for a very effective system when each titanium bolt is properly torqued alternatively to 6Nm.
PRO's components represent the best feedback and real-life use by pro riders and even team mechanics. The Vibe seatpost is incredibly stiff laterally, and has a small amount of give in the vertical plane under load and impact. Cyclists appreciate that active comfort, as well as the vibration damping properties of the UD carbon fiber lay-up. This post is the setback version, which offers 15mm of actual offset, but also may actually proffer a little more due to the narrow fore-aft spacing of the clamp design.
The Limited Edition graphics package delivers a sharp, yet subtle, distinctive effect. The clear height adjustment markings ensure you will always be able to set your ideal saddle height. The overall effect of the PRO Vibe Limited Edition Carbon Seatpost is excellence, and if you are putting together full PRO cockpit for your Shimano mechanical or electronic drivetrain, the seatpost is the perfect complement to the Vibe Limited Edition bar and stem.

BEWARE: Some saddles with carbon oval rails WILL NOT WORK even with the oval-specific clamps that come with it. Most notably, Fizik braided rails WILL NOT WORK. They are slightly too large, making it impossible for the clamps to line up enough for the bolts to engage. Will work completely fine with any round rails but make sure you do some research before purchasing if you plan on using it with an oval rail saddle.
Pros Light, understated graphics compared to the normal
Cons Incompatible with some carbon rail saddles
