In this review, we go through the most popular dropper seatposts currently on the market. Without a doubt, a dropper post is one of the best upgrades you can make to your bike. With the rise in companies making them these days, it is important to know which seatpost will give you the best performance and most importantly be reliable out on the trail.
New and improved for 2017, the Rockshox Reverb features completely re-engineered internals to improve on its already legendary performance. This is an all new dropper as every part on it has been re-evaluated and updated so that it provides a reliable riding experience. Additionally, the Reverb comes with a dropper lever which is a nice touch considering the price point. Overall, Rockshox has built an all around solid dropper post offered in multiple configurations designed to fit any bike and riding style.
Introduced in 2011, the KS LEV dropper post represents everything one could want in a dropper. Smooth, light, and dependable, this post checks all the boxes without breaking the bank. Not only is it reliable, but the KS is also very easy and inexpensive to service making it a great option for the home mechanic.
When Fox first introduced their Transfer seatpost, we knew it would be a hit. Not only does it look great in the Kashima coating, but it has proven itself time and time again to be a reliable and affordable option. An infinitely adjustable design with the choice of either internal or external routing makes this dropper tough to beat. Additionally, the Fox Transfer offers significant modulation to make it easy to regulate the return speed and small height adjustments while on the trail. The dropper of choice for many of us here at Worldwide, the Fox Transfer dropper seatpost simply gets the job done.
