The MacNeil seat and seatpost, using patented Pivotal Technology has done away with the heavy rails and the bulky hardware of traditional seats. Instead the seat sits on its plastic base directly on top of the post, held together by a single bolt that’s accessed through the patch on the top of the seat. This allows for easy adjustment of the seat angle. One quick turn and you’re done.
It’s the lightest, strongest, simplest design out there. Check out the quotes below – we're not the only ones that think so.
No rails to bend or twist
// No ugly/heavy guts showing
Total weight of seat and post combo is just over a pound

Neil Harrington, Mutiny team rider: “The MacNeil seat seatpost setup. I like engineering and inventing and stuff, that product is really f–kin' cool. It made me smile, I mean that seat will not move, the seat will break in half before the join moves a degree. It doesn't weigh a thing either, shit is really nice. Cheers to MacNeil for the product, thanks. – Neil Harrington answers the question "What is the greatest BMX product in the last ten years?" in his '20 Questions' interview in RideUK 94, May 2006.
