KS LEV Integra

4.0 out of 5 star rating

On the bike, the infinite adjustment of the post was smooth and the return was controlled rather than gunshot fast. Andy McCandlish / Immediate Media

  • Price: £290 / AU$500 as tested
  • Weight: 484g (without remote and cable)
  • Stroke length (* tested): 100mm, 125mm*, 150mm, 175mm
  • Diameters: 27.2mm, 30.9mm, 31.6mm, 34.9mm
  • Max length: 450mm
  • Internal length: 250mm

KS’s LEV is light, well priced, flex-free, available in lots of options and more reliable than most of its rivals. It’s been on the market for a while now, so we’ve had plenty of time to work out what it is – and isn’t – good at.

Its large-diameter upper shaft means it flexes noticeably less than most posts when pedalling in longer lengths and on bikes with slack seat angles.

The low weight will appeal to XC/trail riders, and there’s even a 27.2mm version (100mm stroke) for hardtails and older frames. It’s got a smooth and easily controlled stroke with a solid top-out thunk that leaves no doubt that it has re-extended.

Pricing is okay too, with a 100/125mm model at £290, 150mm at £310 and 175mm at £340. KS’s shifter-style ‘Southpaw’ lever (£37 alloy, £59 carbon) is much nicer to use than the short ‘universal’ knuckle lever that comes as standard.

The way that the post extends if you pick the bike up by the saddle is a pet hate of some people. We do still occasionally get LEVs that need a nudge or pull to extend them too, but that’s less common than it used to be.

Our main criticism of the LEV is how the cable is mounted – it’s clamped at the post end instead of the lever. This means accurate cable tension and length is needed to get it working well and it takes longer to set up than posts where the cable is clamped at the remote end.

OneUp V2 Dropper Post

5.0 out of 5 star rating

The V2 has up to 210mm of drop. Alex Evans

  • Price: £179 as tested (plus £42 for OneUp Dropper Post Remote V2)
  • Weight: 579g (without remote and cable – remote: 48g)
  • Stroke length (* tested): 120mm, 150mm, 180mm, 210mm*
  • Diameters (* tested): 30.9mm*, 31.6mm, 34.9mm
  • Max length: 554mm (210mm travel)

The OneUp V2 dropper’s party piece is how it lets riders substantially increase their post’s travel, meaning the seat can be lower on the descents while returning to the same position at full extension, without the equivalent increase in post stack height.

OneUp’s done this by making the post’s body, seal head and seat clamp as slim as possible and the 210mm travel post was shorter than RockShox’ Reverb B1 150mm travel post by 34mm. It’s impressive stuff.

To boot, the V2 doesn’t cost a fortune and we had no issues with it sticking or feeling lumpy during the testing period. It also made us wonder why we haven’t upgraded to a longer travel, shorter stack post sooner!

Bontrager Line Elite

4.5 out of 5 star rating

The Bontrager Line Elite comes with a dropper lever included. Andy Lloyd / Immediate Media

  • Price: £300 / $330 / AU$440/ €350 as tested
  • Weight: 558g
  • Stroke length (* tested): 100mm, 130mm, 150mm, 170mm*
  • Diameters (* tested): 30.9mm, 31.6mm*, 34.9mm
  • Max length: 340mm (100mm travel), 400mm (130mm travel), 440mm (150mm travel), 480mm (170mm travel)

The Bontrager Line Elite is the higher-specced of two dropper seat posts from the brand, with the lower being the Bontrager Drop Line.

This model has Bontrager’s MaxFlow cartridge, which makes for faster and smoother action.

The price includes a dropper lever, which works with Shimano I-spec and SRAM Matchmaker levers, but we found the lever to feel spongy when using it in testing.

This dropper post has a greater stack height than others at 62mm, providing less clearance when the post is dropped.

A nice touch is the adjustable travel height. You can change the travel by 10-30mm by placing a spacer underneath the post’s collar.

Overall, the Bontrager Line Elite is hard to fault, performing without issue in testing and proving easy to install.

Fox Transfer Factory 2020

4.0 out of 5 star rating

2020 Fox Transfer 175mm dropper post. Russell Burton

  • Price: £438 / $409 / AU$658 / €498 (including lever)
  • Weight: 646g
  • Stroke length (* tested): 100mm, 125mm, 150mm, 175mm*
  • Diameters (* tested): 30.9mm, 31.6mm*
  • Max length: 505.7mm
  • Internal length: 298.5mm

If you can afford it, Fox’s Transfer is a robust, sweet-performing post that can be switched between internal and external routing.

It uses a typical hook-ended actuator lever design, but cable clamping and cutting are done at the lever end, making it a much easier process.

The light-action remote lever is available in under-bar shifter style or vertical ‘universal’ format too. You do have to buy that separately at £69 on top of the £369 post cost, which seems steep given its average, wobbly-from-new design.

Fox recently announced the addition of a 175mm stroke length post to the Transfer lineup, which is compatible with the Race Face 1x lever, and the new post and remote will cost the same as the other length models.

The function is silky-smooth though, with excellent speed and position control. Every Transfer we’ve used has stayed that way indefinitely, no matter how bad the conditions or minimal the maintenance.

That makes the high price a reasonable investment, and the Performance version skips the gold Kashima coating of the Factory post to save £50. You can even switch to external operation using an actuator at the collar.

Syncros Duncan Dropper 2.0

4.0 out of 5 star rating

The smooth black finish felt robust and it’s yet to have a mark on it even a month or two down the line. Immediate Media

  • Price: £210 / $230 as tested
  • Weight: 562g
  • Stroke length (* tested): 125mm, 150mm*
  • Diameters: 31.6mm
  • Max length: 458mm

Because the Duncan Dropper 2.0 comes in solely one diameter (31.6mm), it’s only possible to fit it to bikes with a 31.6mm or larger (by adding a shim) diameter seatpost. Further restrictions in available travel options also limit choice.

But if you’re lucky enough to have a bike with a seat tube that it’ll fit and you need either a 125mm or 150mm travel post, the Duncan Dropper 2.0 is a cracking performer.

With the remote included with the post, a smooth and predictable action, and an easy-to-use and reliable two-bolt seat clamp, there are few reasons to not spend your cash on the Duncan.

It does appear to be pretty similar to Race Face’s Aeffect-R and Brand-X’s Ascend II posts, the latter of which costs around £60 less and, in our opinion, has a better remote and cabling. If you’re dead set on the Syncros you can’t go wrong, but there are similar posts out there for less money, so shop wisely.

PNW Loam

4.0 out of 5 star rating

PNW’s Loam dropper post builds on an already extensive component range that offers good value across the board. Andy Lloyd / Immediate Media

  • Price: £146 / $199 / €170 as tested
  • Weight: 524g
  • Stroke length (* tested): 125mm, 150mm*, 170mm, 200mm
  • Diameters (* tested): 30.9mm, 31.6mm*, 34.9mm
  • Max length: 385mm (125mm travel), 440mm (150mm travel), 480mm (170mm travel), 540mm (200mm travel)

PNW offers good value for money across its range of products and its Loam dropper post is no exception.

The dropper post performed well through testing and the Loam lever (which is sold separately for £50 / $69 / €59) has a positive and predictable feel.

The Loam dropper comes with some nifty features including customisable speed return and easy on-bike travel adjustment.

The 55mm stack height is reasonable and still leaves a decent amount of room to move around when the saddle is dropped.

There is noticeable side play when wiggling the saddle which made the post feel less sturdy but did nothing to impact performance.

Crankbrothers Highline XC/Gravel

4.0 out of 5 star rating

The Crankbrothers Highline XC/Gravel Dropper seatpost is a short-travel option. Immediate Media

  • Price: £225 / $250 / AU$425 / €250 as tested
  • Stroke length : 60mm, 80mm, 100mm, 125mm
  • Diameter: 27.2mm

The Crankbrothers Highline dropper seatpost is designed for cross-country cycling and gravel riding, so it comes in a narrow 27.2mm diameter and with relatively short stroke lengths at 60mm to 125mm.

There is a quick-connect system for the cable and while this is straightforward, it’s worth spending some time to get the installation right.

Despite using the post through a wet winter, the seatpost action remained smooth and we found using it on a Santa Cruz Stigmata made a brilliant bike even better.

One of the most ingenious aspects of the Crankbrothers dropper system is the dual-action dropper lever, which can be used with your forefingers when riding on the top of the bars or by your thumb on the drops. Unfortunately, it isn’t included in the Highline’s price and will need to be purchased separately for  £49 / $50 / AU$125.

В современной реальности существуют вариации пневматических подседельных штырей, в зависимости от требований покупателя.

По типу приведения в действие механизма

В данный момент на рынке существует четыре основные разновидности типов приведения в действие механизма пневматических подседельных штырей:

  1. Расположение рычага, приведения в действие механизма, под седлом. Это наиболее бюджетный вариант конструкции. На фоне остальных разновидностей, этот вариант наименее удобный в использовании. А учитывая стремительное снижение стоимости пневматических дропперов, подседельное расположение рычага практически вытиснилось с рынка другими конструкциями;
  2. Рычаг управления нарульный с гидролинией. В данном случае рычаг выглядит как курок переключения скоростей и располагается там же – на руле. Но, по аналогии с гидравлическими тормозами, имеет гидролинию, с помощью которой и приводит в действие клапан пневматического картриджа. Также не самое популярное решении, так как гидролиния имеет свои слабые места. Например, она имеет свойство завоздушиваться или же со временем терять качество масла, на основе которого она и работает. В обоих случаях необходима прокачка гидролинии с частичной или полной заменой масла. А это лишние заботы и затраты на обслуживание;
  3. Рычаг управления нарульный тросиковый. Наиболее востребованная вариация. Когда производители смекнули, что в данном случае на рычаг не прикладываются такие усилия, как на тормоза, поняли, что нецелесообразно вносить в конструкцию лишние усложнения в виде гидролинии;
  4. Новомодный, совсем недавно появившийся на рынке вариант – беспроводное управление дроппером. В данном случае на подседельном штыре устанавливается беспроводная система управления и аккумулятор, а на руль цепляется эргономичная беспроводная кнопка со своей батарейкой формфактора «таблетка». Крайне достойный тип управления. Но пока система совсем «молодая», потому стоимость таких дропперов крайне высока. На рынке она представлена несколькими пневматическими подседельными штырями: Magura Vyron eLECT и RockShox Reverb AXS.

По типу прокладки кабелей

Следующая стадия различий заключается в типе прокладки кабелей от рычага управления к пневматическому картиджу:

  1. Внешняя. Кабеля тянутся по внешней стороне рамы велосипеда. Не самый эстетически совершенный вариант. Но пока достаточно распространенный, потому как далеко не все производители конструируют рамы с внутренней прокладкой тросов;
  2. Внутренняя прокладка. Прокладка кабеля тянется внутри рамы и практически не видна снаружи, кроме части от рычажка до канавки рамы. Это решение более эстетичное и удобное. С каждым годом рам, поддерживающих внутреннюю проводку, становится все больше;
  3. Без кабелей. Этот вариант доступен на соответствующих пневматических подседельных штырях с беспроводным управлением. Самый крутой и самый дорогой.

По общей длине конструкции

Еще одно различие заключается в длине корпуса подседельного штыря. От которой, в свою очередь, косвенно зависит и максимальная длина хода выдвигаемого штока. При этом чем больше диапазон хода штока, тем больше длина корпуса дроппера ему необходима, но у дропперов с большой длиной корпуса не обязательно может быть большая длина хода штока.

Длина корпуса представленных на рынке моделей составляет от 295 мм. до 560 мм. Длина хода штока от 35 мм. до 210 мм.

По диаметру подседельной трубы

И наконец различие по диаметру подседельной трубы. Этот параметр присутствует и в обычных подседельных штырях.

В данный момент их существует 4 разновидности:

  1. 27.2 мм.;
  2. 30.9 мм.;
  3. 31.6 мм.;
  4. 34.9 мм..

Наиболее распространенные из них это 30.9 мм. и 31.6 мм.

9Point8 Fall Line

4.0 out of 5 star rating

9Point8’s Fall Line offers smooth action and adjustable return speeds. Immediate Media Co

  • Price: £379 / $349 as tested
  • Weight: 623g
  • Stroke length: 75mm, 100mm, 125mm, 150mm, 175mm, 200mm
  • Diameters: 30.9mm, 31.6mm
  • Max length: 455mm
  • Internal length: 245mm

One of the longest posts on the market, the Fall Line is light and loaded with great features, but we’ve had irritating leakage issues with our samples.

The ‘DropLoc’ cable shuttle needs to be set up exactly right, but having the cable anchored at the lever end makes it easier, and once you’ve got it sorted the whole mechanism can be unscrewed for easy removal/refitting.

There’s a wide range of stroke lengths, with super-long 175mm and 200mm versions available for an extra £40. It’s both lightweight and short for its travel.

The saddle clamp features large titanium bolts for security and separate angle adjustment, and there’s a layback head option for £35.

Whether you choose the ‘universal’ remote or the sweetly-machined shifter-style ‘Digit’ unit seen here, the action is very smooth. Return speed can be altered and stop-point modulation is excellent.

The 9point8 post has a great reputation for reliability too, although we’ve had gradual pressure leakage problems.

Brand-X Ascend XL

4.5 out of 5 star rating

The updated Brand-X Ascend boasts a larger shaft diameter (reducing flex), an additional DU bushing and upgraded internals. Andy Lloyd / Immediate Media

  • Price: £170 / $180 / AU$275 / €190 as tested
  • Weight: 668g
  • Stroke length (* tested): 170mm, 200mm*
  • Diameters (* tested): 30.9mm*, 31.6mm
  • Max length: 499mm (170mm travel), 559mm (200mm travel)

Priced under £200 for a long-travel dropper, the Brand-X Ascend XL is hard to beat. The 200mm version, in particular, is a good bet for taller riders.

Brand-X has increased the shaft diameter and improved the internals in the Ascend XL for less flex and a smoother action.

The post comes with a shifter-style under-bar remote and internal cable routing, unlike the regular Ascend (also included in this guide), which has external routing.

Although the post isn’t light, it proved to be reliable over months of use. Stack height isn’t bad, but fitting might be an issue if you have a kinked or extra-tall seat tube.

4.5 out of 5 star rating

With 212mm of drop, this is one of the longest-travel dropper seatposts you can buy. Andy Lloyd / Immediate Media

  • Price: €427.93 (approx £388) as tested
  • Weight: 530g (212mm post and remote)
  • Stroke length (* tested): 122mm, 152mm, 182mm, 212mm*
  • Diameters (* tested): 30.9mm*, 31.6mm, 34.9 mm
  • Max length: 571mm

The Vecnum NIVO is available in four lengths and the 212mm version we tested is one of the longest-travel seatposts available on the market. That amount of travel is liberating for tall folk on bikes with rider-forward geometry.

The TRAVELFIT system allows you to shorten the travel in 4mm steps to find the perfect fit for your frame and the overall package is surprisingly light.

However, it’s a pricey option and we needed to up the pressure to the maximum allowed to get the post to reach full extension.

RockShox Reverb AXS

4.5 out of 5 star rating

SRAM reckons the post lasts around 40 hours of ride time before it’ll need charging. Andy Lloyd

  • Price: £700 / $800 as tested
  • Weight: 650g
  • Stroke length (* tested): 100mm, 125mm, 150mm*, 175mm, 200mm
  • Diameters: 30.9mm, 31.6mm, 34.9mm
  • Max length: 440mm

As RockShox’s halo dropper post, it comes as little surprise that the Reverb AXS is a top-scorer. Building on the hydraulic Reverb’s performance, the electrical AXS takes the simplicity of use one step further.

The button’s especially light and easy to push, and the post doesn’t require the physical depression of a lever to actuate, making its use more intuitive to operate even over rough, jolty terrain.

The lack of cables makes fitting easy and it would be possible to share this one post across many bikes. After months of abuse in adverse British weather, it’s still running as it should.

BikeYoke Revive 2.0

4.5 out of 5 star rating

The BikeYoke Revive 2.0 dropper seatpost is seriously long at 213mm. Andy Lloyd / Immediate Media

  • Price: £299-£365 as tested (without dropper lever)
  • Weight: 642g
  • Stroke length (* tested): 125mm, 160mm, 185mm, 213mm*
  • Diameters (* tested): 30.9mm, 31.6mm*, 34.9mm (Revive Max)
  • Max length: 397mm (125mm travel), 467mm (160mm travel), 517mm (185mm travel), 582mm (213mm travel)

As far as we are aware, the BikeYoke Revive 2.0 is the longest dropper post on the market with 213mm of travel and a 582mm max length in its biggest size, which is good news for those with long legs.

The low stack height keeps the post out of the way when it’s down, providing plenty of room to move your body around when descending.

The BikeYoke Revive 2.0 has always been praised for its smooth action, and our testing led us to think that this could well be the best feeling cable-operated dropper around, with a precise and light lever feel.

The BikeYoke Revive 2.0 doesn’t come with a dropper lever included, and this will cost an extra £65 on top of the initial £299–£365 outlay (depending on stroke length).

Finally, the post doesn’t use an IFP (internal floating piston) like some other brands. This means fewer seals, less friction and less to go wrong, but it does mean the oil can mix with the air resulting in sponginess. A 4mm bolt underneath the saddle clamp makes it easy to refresh the post, but the necessity of this could be offputting for some.

e*thirteen Vario Infinite

4.0 out of 5 star rating

The Vario offers tool-free travel adjustment and an impressive remote (sold separately). Alex Evans

  • Price: £200 as tested
  • Weight: 628g
  • Stroke length (* tested): 120mm-150mm, 150mm-180mm*
  • Diameter: 30.9mm, 31.6mm
  • Max length: 535mm

e*thirteen’s post offers 30mm of tool-free travel adjustment in 5mm increments, without needing to remove the post from the bike. It’s quick and easy to adjust, although we questioned how often you’d change your travel after the initial setup.

The post’s stanchion and head are forged as a single piece to add rigidity, although the post did develop some play during testing. e*thirteen says its gas-sprung cartridge is designed to reduce the force needed to drop the saddle. We did find return speed a little slow though and it isn’t adjustable.

We really liked the Vario remote, which is sold separately for £50 and has an angle-adjustable paddle. It comes with a standard bar clamp and is also SRAM Matchmaker compatible.

Fox Transfer Performance Elite

4.5 out of 5 star rating

The new Fox Transfer Performance Elite is lighter than before and is now available with 200mm of travel. Andy Lloyd / Immediate Media

  • Price: £339 / $309 as tested
  • Weight: 636g
  • Stroke length (* tested): 100mm, 125mm, 150mm, 175mm*, 200mm
  • Diameters (* tested): 30.9mm, 31.6mm*
  • Max length: 308.6mm (100mm travel), 363.5mm (125mm travel), 418.3mm (150mm), 475.1mm (175mm travel), 530.7mm (200mm travel)

Fox has updated its reliable Transfer dropper post, reducing weight, insertion depths and adding a 200mm travel option. It’s also released a new 1x bar remote and has made internals easier to service.

One of our favourite new additions is the low-profile seat clamp which keeps the stack height at a minimal 44mm and frees up plenty of space to move your body around on steep descents.

Installation and adjustment are very easy and the cam-operated actuator makes for a light feel.

The new 1x remote was smooth throughout testing and can be mounted either directly to the bar or Shimano I-Spec or SRAM Matchmaker brake levers. The only downside is the lever isn’t included and will cost an extra £75.
