"Aside from its 100% improvement in fitting, the Alien is as good as it ever was - super-light, more than tough enough (although for ultimate strength go for the SUMO head version) and with quality carbon tubing that takes the sting out of rough road surfaces extremely well. In all the Alien come highly recommended and shows that there are still some British brands pushing cycle design."

The USE Alien seat post maintains its position of market leader in the lightweight performance sector. The Alien has continually evolved with the latest being the Alien Cyclops. Using a larger (3mm hex key) single bolt central to the clamp design, the Alien Cyclops makes adjustment easier and faster. The new Cyclops design is stronger than ever and is even 5g lighter. The Alien Cyclops has a unique one-key release mechanism that makes re-adjustment as simple as a turn of the hex key.
The Alien Carbon seat post is used by World-class athletes through to amateurs, 2 X Tour de France King of the Mountains, Multiple MTB World Cup victories.
