I have been riding the new KCNC Ti Pro Lite seatpost for over 5 months now, and not only is it a nice looking seatpost, but it is one of the best lightweight seatposts currently on the market.
My older KCNC Ti Pro Lite seatpost was starting to show its age, and I was having a difficult time discerning the height markings on the seatpost that I used for terrain adjustments. The seatpost was still functioning properly after many years of use, and except for the occasional squeak (fixed by a drop of lube on the bolts) it has never given me any issues, so I can vouch for its durability.

Earlier in the year, I got an email that the KCNC Ti Pro Lite was now available in colors! How cool was that. It used to come in basic black with an option for colored yokes, which was sort of boring. They now come in full Red, Blue and Gold in 27.2×400, 30.9×400 and 31.6×400 sizes.
The KCNC Ti Pro Lite is a pretty basic seatpost, and is comprised of a Scandium tube (an Aluminum alloy in which Scandium has been added) and an Aluminum yoke saddle clamp system with Titanium bolts.
