The KisBikeCo ‘Twist’ V2 Seatpost landed in our office and it certainly is a well thought out design. I remember looking at the V1’s and thinking it was a great idea, but the V2 looks just as good and any issues with the socket becoming loose or whatever have been fixed, I know a few people who ride these, have taken their wheels off many times and they are solid. If you can remember back to Issue #183 the Twist V2 Post was featured in our ‘Fresh Out The Box’ section. You can read the full review HERE.
The key feature of the seatpost is the 17mm socket which is a handy little invention indeed. Kis ultimately wanted to eliminate the need to carry bulky tools around, armed with just a 6mm allen key you should be able to take your bike apart if you rock all Kis parts. It’s fair to say the North Yorkshire based company are looking to further the design of BMX parts and have found new innovative ways of making our lives a whole lot easier!
