Eurobike 2016: Ritchey Dropper Post
We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again, “Dropper posts are nice for gravel riding and racing.” Ritchey understands this and has released a new dropper post that should tickle the fancy of those of us that agree with the aforementioned statement.
The WCS Trail Dropper Seatpost is a humble, yet ideal, 90mm travel post that offers three positions. It lacks “infinite” travel, but would do you really need that in something with 90mm of travel? It’s available in 30.9 and 31.6 diameters, and Ritchey tells me a 27.2 version is in the works. This dropper also sports remotes for Shimano ISPEC2 or SRAM and a standard clamp remote. Weight is 417 grams without the remote.
Do you have any plan to run a dropper post?
