Question about Seatpost Kalloy

I have a Orgin8 del pasado,
https://store.citygrounds.com/store/p...rack-Frameset/
and its begining to be hard trying to find a cheapish seat post to fit it. the only ones i seem to find for the 25.4mm space is these Kalloy uno speat posts or bmx posts.
https://www.ride-this.com/index.php/k...ource=googleps
I would like to know if this one is a bmx seatpost because those are the only ones i'm finding for the size, i just want to know if it has that slant because it looks like it doesnt but i could be wrong.
thank you.

I have one you can have if you pay the shipping. I'll have to go out to the shed to find it.

It'll have an angle. The seat angle can be adjusted within a fairly broad range.

Yes it does. We sold plenty of those posts. Seat angle is adjustable to a fairly large degree.

It's not a bmx seatpost. I got one for my gf's build, and it's just fine for a cheap seatpost.
