Single-Bolt Seatpost Saddle Installation- Standard and Oversized Wedges

Are you a visual learner?  Here is our saddle installation video.

What's included with an ENVE seatpost:

  • 1 seapost assembled with standard rail wedges (standard wedges are designed for metal railed saddles, note 7mm rails on the side of the wedge, have a torque spec of 8-12nm, and use a 5mm bolt)
  • 1 set of oversized wedges with appropriate bolt (oversized wedge kits should be used with carbon railed saddle, note 7-10mm rails on the side of the wedge, have a torque spec of 8nm, and use a 4mm bolt)

Tools Needed

  • 5mm allen wrench (standard rail wedge kit)
  • 4mm allen wrench (oversized rail wedge kit)
  • Torque wrench
  • Grease

Installation- Saddle with Standard Rails

  • Loosen the bolt with a 5mm allen wrench and remove the standard rail wedges
  • Lightly grease the threads for the wedge bolt
  • Lightly grease the sliding edge of the wedge
  • Install the bolt into the appropriate wedge half
  • Remove the lower cradle of the seatpost clamp
  • Slide the saddle on to the seatpost
  • Reinstall the lower cradle
  • Attach the second half of the wedge
  • Tighten to a torque spec of 8-12nm

Tech Note: Do not ever grease the rounded side of the wedge! It can cause the saddle to slip under load.

Installation- Saddle with Oversized Rails

  • Loosen the bolt with a 5mm allen wrench and remove the standard rail wedges and set aside
  • Lightly grease the threads for the oversized wedge bolt
  • Lightly grease the sliding edge of the wedge
  • Install the bolt into the appropriate wedge half
  • Remove the upper and lower cradle of the seatpost clamp
  • Slide the saddle on to the seatpost
  • Reinstall the upper cradle
  • Reinstall the lower cradle
  • Attach the second half of the wedge
  • Tighten to a torque spec of 8nm

Tech Note: A light tap from a rubber mallet may be necessary in order to seat the lower wedge over the saddle rails.
