3T Dorico Team Seatpost
The singular red stripe delineating 3T's Team series of components is an undeniably powerful statement. But there's something to be said for the raciness and sheer sex appeal of black-on-black that gets our hearts pounding. 3T is now making available their Dorico Team Seatpost in a finish that is more than befitting of our wildest carbon fiber dreams.
The 3T Dorico Team Seatpost is a classic setback post that follows the same time-tested Grecian architectural inspirations of 3T's best-selling Doric post. Very similar in appearance to both the LTD and Pro series of seatposts, the Dorico Team is a mid-range post that combines the strengths of both the aforementioned — the shock-absorbing unidirectional carbon fiber shaft of the LTD and the 7075 aluminum carrier of the Pro, resulting in a seatpost that is as durable and time-honored as the Parthenon columns from which the Dorico owes its name. The Dorico also uses titanium hardware to keep the post's weight under 220 grams (31.6 x 280mm post).
Unlike the similarly constructed 3T Doric Seatpost, the Dorico has 25 millimeters of setback, which is perfect if you have longer legs and struggle to dial in a comfortable saddle position. The Dorico uses a classic two-bolt clamp for keeping your saddle in place. It's hardly fancy, but adjusting your saddle angle shouldn't ever be a complicated affair — simply tighten the rear bolt and loosen the front bolt to angle your saddle up, and perform the reverse to lower your angle.
The Dorico Team Seatpost comes in a White or Gloss Black. The 350mm shaft comes in 27.2 and 31.6mm lengths.
