AX Lightness Europa Premium Seatpost
|Availability:||Out of stock|
The Europa Premium seatpost from AX lightness is their lightest post offering and the Premium in the name is certainly more than just marketing speak. Significantly lighter than the standard Europa post the Premium offering boasts AX Lightness’s specific carbon layup process, and high stress area material reinforcement. The foundation of any good seatpost is the tube itself. The Europa receives a stress optimized internally butted molding to add strength where it is needed, and shave weight where it is not. To maintain strength where it is vital the post receives reinforcement in the clamping section with Aramid protection for its superior durability. This reinforcement can be seen in the change of fiber alignment along the back side of the post. 3k carbon weave is used internally as well as in the clamping bolt cross brace interface. The thickest walled carbon can be found on the saddle rail cradle as this piece centers your weight on the post head. The only metal pieces on the post are the titanium bolts and aluminum saddle rail clamps and cross brace. With the strength centered where it counts AX has created a post that is incredibly light while maintaining a 85 kg rider weight limit. If you’re looking for an ultralight post that doesn’t sacrifice performance for weight savings the Europa is the perfect choice for your next build. Pair your Europa Premium with Ax’s Rigid stem for a sleek UD aesthetic.
