CF3 Pro Carbon
Ergon presents a brand new innovative seat post for the road. The post offers a uniquely comfortable ride while remaining lightweight, making it ideal to match to today’s ultra-stiff road frames. The seatpost is designed to flex offering added suspension, killing road buzz and soaking up imperfections in the road surface. The saddle moves backwards in arc motion, with the carbon suspension beams (Canyon VCLS Technology) equipped with pivots to ensure the saddle remains horizontal. Flip-Head (7x9 oval rail clamp) available separately. The system is maintenance free, offers simple setback and saddle angle adjustment, and weighs in at about 220 g. Eurobike Award 2012 Winner

The Comfort Revolution for Road Cyclists.
Shock impact forces
At the heart of the seatpost are two parallel carbon flat springs. The seatpost head has two bearings allowing it to stay parallel to the ground through the travel motion. The function is simple. A bump through the bike pushes the bike upwards, the seatpost flexes in the exact opposite direction (see image) allowing the bump to be neutralised. This is a lot more efficient than a tradi- tional suspension post. The post keeps that 'direct' road bike feel, but the VCLS flat springs are sensitive to small variations in road surface. A genuine comfort revolution, lightweight and maintenance free.
Floating pivot Flip Head prevents the saddle angle changing as the post compresses.
Flip Head can be rotated for Increased adjustment for a more fore or aft position.
