Building on their growing line of suspension seat posts, Cane Creek just announced the longer travel eeSilk+, which has 35mm of travel. Just like the 20mm travel version, the eeSilk+ comes in both alloy and carbon models, and 27.2mm and 31.6mm diameters. And just like their other posts, the eeSilk+ uses an easily swappable external elastomer that is tuned to the weight of the rider, reducing chatter and vibrations from the surface of the road or trail.
The new eeSilk+ features stainless steel hardware and weighs less than 381 grams for the alloy post and less than 335 grams for the carbon post. The eeSilk+ comes with an increased seatpost length of 387mm and the eeSilk+ Carbon is 362mm long. The eeSilk+ Carbon comes with the same titanium hardware and custom titanium thumbwheel as the eeSilk Carbon. Like its shorter travel counterpart, eeSilk+ comes with 300-series stainless steel axles and IGUS bushings that sit within the seatpost head and cradle to make for a more serviceable and quieter pivot design.
Logan put some serious time on the standard eeSilk post last year and was impressed by its elegant, lightweight design and its ability to dampen rough gravel roads. The overall quality and reliability of the seatpost also stood out for him. Make sure to check out his full review here.
