Whether you’ve got an older frame you want to fit with a dropper, or you’ve got a wholly new fangled gravel bike which you want to take down more extreme trails than your towpath, Crankbrothers’ new Highline 27.2in dropper posts will likely be of interest.
The Highline 27.2 XC/Gravel will be available in 60, 80, 100, and 125mm drops, with short or long post insertion available for the 60mm dropper, and long insertion posts for the 80mm and above. There’s a separate two-way drop bar remote, available for £42.99 that can be operated from different hand positions.
Inside, there’s a hydraulic IFP cartridge and quick connection on the base of the dropper – just like the rest of the Highline range. As with other Highlines, it’s cable actuated with infinite positions along the dropper’s height.
