Easton EC90 SL ISA seatpost goes super light

Independent saddle adjustment gets race-weight makeover

October 30th, 2019 by | Posted in Gear Reviews | Tags: ,

Easton made a positive improvement to the unassuming seatpost when the brand introduced its ISA range last year. Now, it’s back to make the ISA post lighter, and more functional.

The EC90 SL ISA seatpost brings Easton’s Super Light unidirectional carbon fibre to the ISA line. Going SL sheds grams off the post to make it a truly race-ready component. The featherweight zero offset post rolls off the line at a scant 195 g.

More than just light, the EC90 SL ISA retains Easton’s Independent Saddle Adjustment design. This lets you dial in fit without the frustration by isolating seat angle adjustment and the saddles fore-aft movement.

While it’s a small change, we quite liked the system when we tested the EA90 ISA seatpost least year. Now, you can get the same ease of use in a super light post. The Sl version has been on the bikes of Easton’s elite World Cup racers like Sanne Cant and the Overland gravel team, so while it’s super light, it’s also happy being dragged through the mud.

Easton also introduced a 27.2 Di2 Batter Insert, which can be used across the full range of ISA 27.2 seatposts. The simple design gives you one more option for storing your Di2 battery on internally routed frames.
