    This was the first post I've found, yet its not super light, Its quite expensive and the rail system isn't reliable...

    I think the 400mm requirement is going to hamper you. If you can go shorter, it may open up some options.

    I use a KCNC post right now, it uses the same type of clamp that Tune, Schmolke, Extralight etc. use. So your carbon rails should fit and best of all there about 100$ on ebay, the 27.2 is about 165-170 grams at 400mm. On a side note I weigh about 180-190 and I've been using my post for 3 years and have had zero problems other than seat creaking after adjustments (due to me not setting the clamps correctly.

    400mm or more, it's not a option, my weight isn't a issue, I'm only 130 lbs...

    Keith Bontrager once said, "Light, Cheap, Strong - Pick two."

    KCNC is probably your best bet. Thomsons are upgradable (Ti bolts, carbon cradels) and are worth a look.
