I just received my new seatpost from the amazing crew of Cirrus Cycles in Washington state. It’s a BodyFloat Isolation Seatpost.
Most of you haven’t seen this type of bicycle seatpost. It’s a one-of-a-kind seatpost, where you as a rider is suspended, allowing the bike to move underneath you. They term as “Isolation Seatpost” because you, the rider, is isolated from high frequency vibrations of the road surface. They also claim it reduces back fatigue. This post may not only benefit cyclist who are looking for increasing their performance from decreased fatigue, but may also allow cycling to be more enjoyable by the average cyclist and even allowing those with back pain to once again go for a ride.
In the upcoming days, I will be un-boxing, installing, and providing my feedback on this device. Should it pass my mini-tests, I will keep it installed on my bike as I tackle the Dirty Kanza 200 this June.
