13 Best BMX Seat Posts (Tested 2024)

bmx seat posts

Welcome to my extensive collection of the best pivotal, stealth and tripod BMX seat posts.

Yes, I made sure to include something for everyone.

If you like it traditional, go with pivotal (sorry, no railed option here).

But if you like a cleaner look, then tripod or stealth systems are the way to go.

Stealth is GREAT because it’s also compatible with pivotal. (Tripod is not!)

I’m currently testing the tripod system, but I will later switch to stealth or pivotal because of more seat options.
