This is the Ascend dropper seatpost from Brand-X, which sets a new standard for reliability and performance at a fantastic price.
With a stream of positive reviews already pouring in, we’re expecting the Ascend dropper seatpost to be a big hit – it’s a consistent and dependable remotely operated, internally routed dropper seatpost, which allows you to infinitely adjust your saddle height to suit the terrain ahead, without having to take your hands off your handlebars.
This ergonomic shifter style remote lever is designed to be run where your front shifter would normally sit. This means that the Ascend Dropper is ideally suited for those using a 1x chain ring set up; without a front derailleur. A paddle style shifter is available aftermarket if you want to use the Ascend dropper post with a front derailleur and shifter.
Why use a dropper seatpost?
A dropper seatpost is a must-have component if you’re riding steep, technical descents. It gives you the option of activating the switch and dropping the saddle out of the way, enabling you to more easily position your body over the back wheel for improved control and weight distribution.
Once at the bottom, another flick of the switch and compressed air causes the seat to rise back to its original position for optimum pedaling dynamics.
