Suspension seatposts – supreme comfort!
Suspension seat posts offer the rider one thing above all: comfort! They skilfully absorb smaller bumps and also absorb coarser impacts from kerbs or roots. This not only makes riding more comfortable, but is also good for the back, because impacts are absorbed instead of going directly to the spine. Depending on the model, the suspension element in the seatpost consists of either a steel spring or an air cartridge. Even simple versions make riding on uneven surfaces much more comfortable. One disadvantage is that the power transmission to the pedals is at least somewhat hindered by the suspension; on the other hand, it gives the rider a relaxed, pain-free ride.
