Seatpin testing:
seatpinWe have completed a number of tests on both our own Pelligrino seatpins, and those of many others in the market. You can see the results of those tests by downloading a table of the results . We also have the load deflection graph of our own Pelligrino Mk2 seatpost.
NOTE: We are now offering the Pellegrino II and are working on Pellegrino III, but newer versions are subjected to the same testing conditions and must pass the tests with similarly excellent results before being officially added to the Pro-Lite product lineup.
