New Updated V3 Version!
The new V3 Rapidé ControlTower Stealth Dropper post has been updated with new hard wearing cylindrical keys to reduce play over time by maintaining tighter tolerances.
A super reliable sealed hydraulic cartridge, gator seal and quality DU bushings are carried over from our V2 model.
We also have a easy to install service kit to maintain the dropper posts performance with ease.
The easiest way to see how a dropper post will improve your riding is to go out for a ride and try this: Ride a familiar steep or rocky section of trail a few times with your saddle at its normal height and then lower it – just loosen the seat clamp and slide the post into the frame, making a note of its original position. Having the saddle out of the way allows you to position your body for better balance, you will find that that position is usually occupied by your saddle when it is at full height.
The room to confidently move around on the bike changes everything. Suddenly even the most technical obstacles become rideable and you will find your riding even more enjoyable. Being able to lower your saddle for sweeping corners and rock gardens drops your center of gravity significantly and allows you to flow through them quickly and confidently.
The dropper post is being adopted by ever more riders outside of the core trail-riding scene. Now marathon, XCO and Gravel riders are taking advantage of the benefits a dropper post offers as well.
The Rapidé Drop-R post comes in a 30.9mm diameter, 125mm travel and will also fit 31.6mm diameter seat tubes with the available shim making it more flexible for moving between bikes with different seat tube diameters.
