Im looking for a carbon seatpost for a reasonable price in 31.6mm and ~350mm length. I now have a Thomson Elite seatpost 31.6mm/367mm 223g. KCNC would be light but i would really like to have a carbon one because i like the look of them. Price should be around 100-200 euro. I have been looking for a Syntace P6 Carbon but the weight is not so good (205g). AX Lightness Europa or Schmolke TLO would be best but a little bit too expensive. What about Ritchey? They seem to have some posts with only one bolt system. How do they perform next to the Thomson? Two bolt system in Thomson is one of the best i have had so i really would not like to sacrifice the performance. Any suggestions for a new seatpost?

New Ultimate or cheaper and a bit heavier saso/cycle king off ebay.

You can also go with a custom one. A few people can do that too 8)

I have the Vortex seatpost in 31.6 x 350, same as the cycle king just different decals. So far so good, I have been using it for a year and for only $65usd I'm more than happy.

Thank you for answers! The New Ultimate seatpost is exactly what im looking for. Is there any rider weight limit for it? I weight around 80-85kg with driving gear on. What is the best place to buy it inside the EU?

I am very satisfied with my New Ultimate carbon seatpost. In use since spring 2007, has gathered some damage but still holds.
A good product, the price is reasonable.

very similar. I have 2 New Ultimates and the upper clamps are silver. bottom one is black and looks slightly different than the one pictured.

If I needed another post and they were in the US I would buy one of those.
