Adjustable seatposts are a staple in mountain biking, especially in the fastest growing segment of all-mountain riding. Crank Brothers has been in the adjustable seatpost category for nearly five years, and have learned a lot about what works and what doesn't. With that knowledge, they decided it was time for a better approach. Hydraulic posts are heavy and problematic, so they took a different route. With a fresh set of eyes, they designed a mechanical post to believe in. It is technical, durable, and beautiful. Crank Brothers consider it to be the eggbeater of the adjustable seatpost market. Introducing the Crank Brothers Kronolog Adjustable Seatpost.
Robust Simplicity: The Kronolog is a very simple design, with a limited number of functioning parts. Fewer parts means fewer failures. The Kronolog passes 2.7 times EN fatigue testing, making it twice as strong as other posts on the market. Mechanical Design: The mechanical design allows for very accurate, precise movement-like a Swiss watch. The Kronolog is the only mechanical post available that is infinitely adjustable. Hydraulic Feel: Although it functions mechanically, the Kronolog feels hydraulic. It is smooth, supple, and quiet. Air Spring Technology: The air spring technology lets you adjust the preload and return speed simply with air. Just add or remove air through the valve at the bottom of the post using a standard shock pump. Two-Stage Damping: Air damping allows the saddle to return to a normal riding position in two, smooth stages. The initial return is quick, and then the post slows down for the last inch of return. Rotational Stability: The unique keying system between the quill and shaft results in substantially improved rotational stability. Stronger & Lighter: The Kronolog seatpost offers more travel, durability, and robustness, all at about 50g less than Crank Bros' previous adjustable seatpost. Two-Way Locking: The seatpost locks into position both upward and downward. Pull up on your saddle, and the seatpost stays in place. Improved cable routing: The cable routes from the post's stationary body, which means the cable stays put as the post moves up and down. No excess cable to interfere with your riding. You can even adjust the routing so that the cable routes from either the front or back of the post. Travel Adjust: If you'd like to shorten the travel of the post to less than 5 inches, that's possible too. Spacers can easily be added to reduce the travel in 20mm increments. Remote Adjust: The Kronolog remote attaches to the handlebar using a standard handlebar clamp. Change the lever to either the left or right side by removing the T-25 bolt and swapping the barrel adjuster. Proven Clamp Mechanism: The infinitely adjustable, single-bolt clamping system is market proven.
