We recently looked at the Redshift Sports ShockStop suspension stem, and in this release, the company announces a Kickstarter for its ShockStop Suspension Seatpost. Learn more about the new seatpost and the Kickstarter for the project.
Philadelphia-based Redshift Sports, a cycling brand known for the design and execution of cutting-edge cycling components, released its latest innovation today: the ShockStop Suspension Seatpost.
The ShockStops’s unique design, born from experience engineering suspension systems for heavy-duty off-road equipment, will dramatically improve your riding experience. It is equally suited for an epic gravel adventure or just dealing with potholes on your daily commute.
The Seatpost is available for pre-order via Kickstarter.
In 2015, Redshift launched the ShockStop Suspension Stem, providing suspension to the front end of the bike. ShockStop changed the way people thought about suspension stems, and it helped start the movement to add comfort and compliance back into road, gravel and cyclocross bikes. Before the first stem was even available, customers were asking when Redshift would develop a companion seatpost.
The ShockStop Seatpost suspends the rider's body, isolating them from the imperfections of the road and trail. Travel and suspension kinematics were optimized to provide a plush, bottomless feel. Riders can adjust the spring rate and preload to suit their specific riding style and terrain. By integrating elements of the suspension into the post itself, the ShockStop achieves a compact and lightweight design that mates well with all styles of bicycle.
The ShockStop Seatpost lets you ride faster and more efficiently by keeping you stable and allowing the bike to absorb the rough terrain. This means you spend more time putting power to the pedals and less time bracing for impacts. The ShockStop Seatpost is the rare product that increases comfort and performance. The ShockStop Seatpost is suggested for all types of riding: gravel, cyclocross, E-bike, commuter, road and mountain.
