Quality Assurance

U.S.E. originated the concept of the Shokpost, and has since gained the reputation as the world’s pre-eminent designer and manufacturer of suspension seat posts for world-class athletes who do no compromise. By sus-pending the rider’s weight on a travel of 65mm, not only is the shock transmitted through the bike seat reduced, but also handling of hard tail bikes can be enhanced. With Soft, Medium and Hard spring / elastomer versions, plus pre-load adjuster, most riders and riding styles are catered for.

The XCR now comes with the SUMO seat clamp. With chunky looks and robust design, the SUMO XCR seat post is engineered to take a pounding and go the distance. The acclaimed quick fitting clamp design ensures the perfect seat position can be achieved, with the full range of tilt adjustment available.

When the need arises, U.S.E. Shokposts can be serviced without special tools.

Forged 7075—T6 aluminium combines great strength with lightness.

Shim and Shokpost Selection

As the U.S.E. XCR Shokpost is 27.2mm diameter, it is necessary to find the diameter of your existing seat post. This is almost always marked on the seat post. Otherwise measure the diameter accurately, such as with calli-pers (see photo).

If your seat post size is 27.2mm, the U.S.E. XCR Shokpost will fit straight into the frame seat tube and a shim will not be required It is recommended to first apply some lubricant round the seat post to prevent sticking when sliding directly into the frame. Many road bikes have the 27.2mm size.

For sizes above 27.2mm, a shim will fill the gap between the 27.2mm diameter Shokpost and the frame seat tube (your original seat post diameter). The shims listed below are the most common. If your shim size is not shown, please contact us, as we can supply shims in the range 27.8 - 32.8mm. You can place your order for the shim using the USE-XGEN Item Code, and let us know what size you require.
