Look down the quill of the Ritchey WCS and you can still see part of the bladder used to form this monocoque post when it was in the mould. It’s not a true ‘all-carbon’ post because the saddle clamps are lightweight alloy (which Ritchey claims are also low profile), but it is one of the lightest on test. Like all twin-bolt designs, fine-tuning the tilt and rail position is laborious, but it’s something you only do once. Ritchey thoughtfully includes two rubber o-rings on the bolts to stop them falling out, making this process easier. A top-quality post befitting the WCS tag and offered in a good range of sizes and lengths.
