A British-made seatpost with USE’s relatively new, machined aluminium Sumo head, which is 10 times easier than the old Alien head with its tiny Allen bolts. A single 5mm Allen bolt takes care of saddle tilt and rail positioning, and there are even some gradients marked on the back. Our sample slipped a few times initially so we’d maybe introduce some ‘Liquid Torque’ to the clamp interface to keep everything in place. The Sumo has the same
360-deg adjustment as the Bontrager. Overall the Sumo is a good weight and comes in the rare Scott size, but it’s a little expensive.
MBR RATING: 8/10
