Cane Creek Thudbuster ST Seatpost
The Thudbuster ST presents all the benefits of the original Thudbuster LT in a smaller package. The Thudbuster ST uses a shorter parallel-linkage mechanism to yield the ideal suspension seat post for XC riders looking to "take the edge off" with less of a weight penalty, for road riding enthusiasts, for smaller riders and tandem stokers (due to the smaller minimum extension) and for comfort bike owners. The shorter linkage design still provides 1.3 inches of active stiction-free travel.
The Science behind Thudbuster
Working in the direct path of the natural travel of the rear wheel.
The patented Thudbuster technology stays in the direct path of the natural travel of the rear wheel. As a bump lifts the back of a bicycle, the rear wheel pushes up and forward into the rider. The Thudbuster works by compressing along the exact opposite path -- down and rearward -- absorbing force at the same rate: The net movement of the saddle is zero. Fully active elastomers provide approximately 3 inches (76mm, Long Travel) or 1.3 inches (33mm, Short Travel) of customisable suspension.
Riders of all types of bikes around the world rely on Thudbuster to provide higher levels of performance and comfort.
Hardtail Mountain Bikes
The hardtail resurgence is real. Endurance, single-speed and 29er riders are quickly discovering that simple damping technology yields vast improvements in ride quality and control.
Road: Long, rough road rides become less fatiguing and more comfortable. The Thudbuster is perfect for touring and "cause" riders who find traditional saddle/post combos uncomfortable.
Tandems: A happy stoker is essential to fun on a tandem. A Thudbuster can make the difference between a beaten-up rear end and just a little bump now and then.
Folding Bikes: Small-wheel bikes with high-pressure tires directly benefit from Thudbuster suspension.
E-Bikes: In order to accommodate an engine, e-bikes feature, in general, very stiff and unforgiving frame designs. They are also ridden primarily in the saddle, rather than standing.
The Thudbuster takes the edge off without changing the angle of your body in relation to the pedals.
