3T Palladio LTD
3T may be an unfamiliar brand name to those of us in the U.S., unless you’re the new owner of a 3T fork after Cervélo recalled their Wolf forks, but 3T is a familiar name in Italian cycling.
3T recently released the Palladio, a high-end seatpost available in three models: LTD, Team, and Pro. The Palladio is a classic 25mm setback seatpost but what sets it apart is its patented DiffLock adjusting mechanism. In designing the Palladio, 3T aimed at avoiding the need for high torque tightening without compromising saddle stability. The Difflock adjusting mechanism makes it nearly impossible for the saddle to tilt, even if the tightening bolts are not cranked down.
The LTD model of the Palladio is 3T’s top of the line seatpost. It is made of a carbon composite and weighs in at 159 grams. The bolts are titanium with a stainless steel saddle clamp.
