Designed for enhancing the enjoyment and versatility of your mountain biking, PRO proudly showcases its first cable-integrated dropper post at this year’s Eurobike Show (Friedrichshafen, Germany, 31st August to 4th September)
Weighing in at 520g (inc. remote and cable) the Koryak adjustable alloy seat post brings 120mm of smooth non-indexed travel for on-the-fly adjustability.
The smooth downward movement and quick, responsive upwards rebound of the post is provided by a replaceable air cartridge.
The mechanism is operated by an internally routed cable, which runs down the seat post and through the frame, and is connected to a bar-mounted lever by Shimano’s OPTISLICK cables for optimum performance in the face of dirt and mud.
Two lever options are available, a regular up/down lever which can be mounted on the left or right of the bars, or a Firebolt-style lever (compatible with Shimano i-spec II) for those running 1×11 or a SHIMANO SYNCHRONIZED SHIFT set up, which takes advantage of the free left hand shift lever position for operating the dropper post. A full complement of spares are available including air cartridges and new bushes to prolong longevity.
