Strength with little heft.
The 3T Dorico Team Carbon Seatpost is a classic setback post that follows the same time-tested Grecian architectural inspirations of 3T's best-selling Doric post. Very similar in appearance to both the LTD and Pro series of seatposts, the Dorico Team is a mid-range post that combines the strengths of both the aforementioned — the shock-absorbing unidirectional carbon fiber shaft of the LTD and the 7075 aluminum carrier of the Pro, resulting in a seatpost that is as durable and time-honored as the Parthenon columns to which the Dorico owes its name. The Dorico also uses titanium hardware to keep the post's weight under 220 grams (31.6 x 280mm post).
Unlike the similarly constructed 3T Doric Seatpost, the Dorico has 25 millimeters of setback, which is perfect if you have longer legs and struggle to dial in a comfortable saddle position. The Dorico uses a classic two-bolt clamp for keeping your saddle in place. It's hardly fancy, but adjusting your saddle angle shouldn't ever be a complicated affair — simply tighten the rear bolt and loosen the front bolt to angle your saddle up, and perform the reverse to lower your angle.
The Dorico Team Seatpost comes in Black, with a solid red stripe running the length of the post for its Team delineation. Choose between 27.2 and 31.6mm lengths, and 280 or 350mm shaft lengths.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I scalped this seatpost off my dad's Cervelo when he bought a new one with zero offset. It's awesome. Stiff, really light, and carbon in the right places. I only ride for recreation, so weight saving isn't a huge deal, but having a relatively light bike is always nice. This seatpost balances light with durable, I'm not worried about it splitting on me or any of the parts in the clamping mechanism failing. It was a bit hard to set up the first time with the clamps on the rails, but once you have it, it's super easy to adjust if you need to without messing anything else up, and it stays put when you clamp it back down. Mine has a white stripe down the front, which looks really good, as does the red. 3T's graphics always look good, nice and classy.
