DROPPER SEATPOSTS

Dropper seatposts, or what we refer to as 'dropper posts' are becoming more common on bikes to the point where you can even find them on gravel bikes. Whether you are a leisure mountain biker or like to send it hard on the trails, they are a useful feature to have. 

Dropper posts are originally used for descending on more advanced trails, however they have become more popular for recreational riders to build that extra confidence on all types of graded trails. Dropper posts are also a useful tool for getting on and off the bike as many modern mountain bikes have a long wheelbase and 29" wheels, making the bike feel big and high when you're standing next to it. The dropper seatpost allows you to get your leg over the saddle to mount onto the bike without loosing balance or pulling a muscle!

Q. Why are they originally used for riding downhill? 

A. Dropper posts allow the rider to stand out of the saddle and move their body further back without the saddle bumping them forward or getting caught behind it. It's particularly useful for steeper trails to keep your body weight further back.

Q. How does a dropper post work?

A. Most dropper posts work through cable actuation, although there are a handful of electronic/wireless posts. You simply sit on the saddle, push the lever and the dropper post will compress down. If you want to put it back up, you stand up out of the saddle, push the lever again and it will expand back up.

Q. Do you have to be an advanced mountain biker to need a dropper post?

A. No! anyone can have a dropper post regardless of the type of graded trail. You just need a mountain bike that's compatible to install one.

 ROCKSHOX REVERB AXS 

The intention with Reverb AXS™ was inventive and pure: No hoses. No routing. No energy wasted. Not a single thing in the way of the experience. We created a reliable wireless-electronic dropper post and controller that actuates with drastically less effort and zero distraction. Expanding what's possible on a bike, Reverb AXS™ is enabled by SRAM AXS™ technology, a new level of interaction, personalization, and connectivity across all AXS™ enabled components.

A TOUCH OF GENIUS.

The wireless-electronic Reverb AXS™ is all Reverb, revamped with a controller you touch instead of a lever you throw. No second guessing. No delay. A refreshingly light touch of the controller’s paddle offers instant engagement. A simple press of the paddle sends it down. Hit it again, it’s right back up. The perfect speed. Its infinite range lets you set it right where you need it, saving you time, energy, and keeping your focus on the trail ahead.

LET’S MAKE THINGS EASY.

Cutting out the cables makes set up fast and easy. No external hoses. No internal routing. No energy wasted. The Reverb AXS™ complete wireless design is fast to install, and easy to pair. Complimented with an all-new post head, the turn of a single rail-retention bolt makes for a quick and effortless saddle install. Make it perfect with one additional bolt at the front of the head for tilt-adjust and position lock. Drop it in, and send it down. 

VENT VALVE TECHNOLOGY

We don’t want you to have to use it, which is why we’ve created the most robust seatpost to date. We also know, sometimes the inevitable happens. Over time, air and oil may mix, resulting in that annoying post “squish” and the need for additional service. Vent Valve Technology allows you to do this simple service within a few steps, without any disassembly of the post. Depress the valve, compress the post, good to go. The air is channeled back into the air chamber leaving the oil where it belongs and you back to more confident reliable performance.
