Default Thudbuster ST

I am planning to buy a Thudbuster seatpost parallelogram suspension.

However, there are two options: the original one with large a ultra
plush travel of around 4" and the newer one with 1.3" travel.

I am mostly a moderate tour rider (Schwinn Moab with Manitou Six Elite
suspension): I would estimate: 40% off-road and 60% patched street.

Is such a short travel of 1.3 worth the consideration? I'd liked to try
out the paralleloggram from Suntour but my seatpost diameter of the
Schwinn Moab only amounts to 26.8mm and the Suntour starts out at 27.2
as opposed to the Cane Creek which starts off from 25mm.
