BLACX JEWEL XC / Adjustable seatpost

BLACX JEWEL XC

EUROBIKE AWARD

BLACX JEWEL XC

EUROBIKE AWARD

The Jewel is a height adjustable seatpost, controlled remotely from the handlebar.
The innovative mechanical locking system MCL is located inside the tubes and is controlled by magnets placed outside the tubes. This avoids having to make holes in the tube, which would weaken it. The stopping points are pre-determined and sharp, avoiding the annoying “sloppy” feel of pneumatic systems.

This technology enables a completely ergonomic cable routing. The simple, low maintenance design, with a more robust structure gives over 30% weight reduction, as well as an extremely smooth movement and stopping action.
