The only problem is I want it to be under 150g! The ENVE is 400mm long so I can cut approx 150mm for my application which will help.
Beyond that are there any simple 'tuning' ideas to shave off additional weight?
Has anyone successfully removed the large white ENVE logo from the front of the post?
The other option would be to find a lighter post with a 25mm offset. Any ideas?

That is great info! Cutting off 150mm should drop approx 37g which brings the weight into a more acceptable range
Is the supplied through-bolt steel or Ti? If it is steel I should be able to drop at least 5g by swapping to a Ti bolt.
If the advertised weight of 190g is accurate (I use a 27.2mm) these mods should get it down to 150g!
Properly made products have to go through testing that simulate hard impact and wear and tear. Cutting/drilling fibers is more likely to result in cracks than in metal. Even if you are a 120lb spinner, it's impossible to guarantee you won't hit a big pothole one day. Just not worth it.

Don't worry, I have no intention of drilling holes in my CF post or reaming out the center or anything that extreme!
I will cut off as much length as possible and use a Ti main bolt. Hopefully this brings it under 150g.
The enve post uses a Ti bolt with the standard rail clamp wedges and a steel one on the oversized (ie carbon) rail wedges.
I would strongly suggest against replacing the steel bolt for Ti in that case. It's smaller diamater and these seat post heads require a really high torque value to prevent slipping. Not worth the 4-5g you might save.
If you want light buy light in the first place, if you want enve suck it up.
Enve rims are the gold standard in ww wheel building but there cockpit stuff is a bit porky.. Pretty and very nicley made but not light
Ours purchased last August, came with the two sets of rail clamps but only the single Ti clamp bolt.Briscoelab wrote:The enve post uses a Ti bolt with the standard rail clamp wedges and a steel one on the oversized (ie carbon) rail wedges
31.6mm 25 offset overall length 295mm
the claimed weight was accurate used wet & dry sandpaper 1000 grit left a small area but not noticeable.
120mm insert required.
