The murdered out subtlety of 3T's Stylus 0 LTD Stealth Seatpost isn't just an aesthetic statement. It's also a visual manifestation of the seatpost's myopic, un nuanced focus on making the absolute most out of every watt you throw into the bottom bracket. If you're after an easy chair, plush ride, look elsewhere but if you'll stop at nothing for speed, then call the Stylus 0 LTD Nothing. The Styles LTD's low weight of just 140g means it flies under the weight radar, adding less mass to your machine and therefore reducing the number of watts needed to punch up the finishing climb. The zero setback design does its part by positioning your hips more toward the bottom bracket, sacrificing the frills of a compliant, 25mm setback in favor of pure power the same way that the black on black finish eschews the flash and pomp of fatuous, graphical embellishment. Both the post and the clamping plate are monocoque, high modulus carbon fiber, which brings the weight down when compared to the carbon post and alloy clamp of the Team model or the Pro model's all alloy construction. The full carbon build also adds a bit more vibration damping, which is an unlooked for benefit from pure racing kit but welcome, nonetheless. The Stylus clamping system where the two parts meet is designed to distribute load pressure, helping preserve the carbon rails of high end saddles. Despite its all comers ease of use, we do recommend using a torque wrench tuned at or below the max suggested torque of 10Nm while tightening the Stylus 0 LTD Stealth's twin bolts. This tolerance is relatively high for any cockpit component, and we're especially impressed given that the LTD pits carbon against carbon at the clamp area. That high tolerance speaks volumes about not only 3T's carbon fiber expertise but the confidence the Italian company has in the durability of the high modulus carbon fiber that sets the LTD line apart from the Team and Pro seatposts.
