The USE Alien which I really liked the clamp design is only a 10mm setback and it's not enough.
For now I had to put my old 3T Dorico Ltd on the bike but it does not match at all but I need the 25mm of setback.
This means a Thompson setback is out since it is also only 10mm.
I would prefer carbon but most of all something that is light and will match the frame.
The post is 27.2 X 270.
plus, you have to get the special clamp kit aftermarket, I had the luck to find the right one on ebay, there are 3 sizes (standard, 8mm, oval 9,6mm which is carbon fizik specialized etc) and two different materials, make sure you get the carbon one..
lighter than that and with 2-2,5cm of setback, I only know of Ax-lightness post and maybe some other german composite brands, but at that price and weight, a Berk combo is usually a better option, plus I seen a few pics of broken ax posts around.
All the set-back permutations you could need and in all the materials, beautifully engineered - I wanted Ti which is gorgeous, but you may prefer carbon. Probably a seller in UK but I just ordered from Italy. Easy.

When I changed the post back to the Dorico I went from 60mm on the USE to 80mm and may need to go more when I have my fitter look at me on the bike again.

As I said before; PMP have vast permutations in various materials and are beautifully engineered. I believe you need an SB27 to get your position right.
I bought what I needed and then shortened to suit but remember that correct position is far more important than a 20 grm weight penalty!
Hope it works out. Good luck.
