This dropper seatpost is a game changer.
After growing tired of raising and lowering my seat for various trails, or even different parts of a trail, I started looking for a dropper seatpost. This budget option gives you 95% of what you would want at way less than some other options.
Back to the durability... The one thing that concerned me most was how well the KS eTen R Dropper could withstand a crash. I’m no jumping expert but I went for one jump on a local trail system. Got off-angle in the air and although I managed to still save the landing, I was headed straight for a tree. I bailed and the bike hit that tree and ended up on the other side of the trail against another tree. It was evident that the handlebars and dropper switch hit the ground. The switch was covered in dirt, even down into the cable routing recess. Some minor scuffing but nothing broke and it still works as it should. I can’t say the same for my derailleur hanger.
This KS dropper really is great. I still have some work to do on perfecting my usage of it on trails. After only a month of using it, I don’t think I could ever go back to a standard seatpost.
