Remember riding your bike before clip-less pedals?
Before suspension even existed?
How about before disc brakes?
Would you want to go back to any of that?
Well that's how everybody feels about adjustable seat posts. The ability to raise and lower your seat on the fly not only allows for the best possible performance but also offers extra safety while riding. Being able to drop your seat before a technical decent could be the difference between cleaning the section or picking your teeth out of the dirt.

The action of the post feels very smooth….Side to side play is kept to a minimum thanks to a double keyway system…
Remote lever: I just find it really nice to use because you can push or pull it in any direction, which in turn means you can mount it in a whole load of different ways.
The post itself requires a fair bit less cable pull than other cable operated posts, and so this lever feels particularly positive. It’s good to see that it uses a standard gear cable too.
…we particularly like the fact that the end of the outer cable is well housed inside the post,

A promising new lightweight adjustable post.
X-Fusion’s latest range of forks has impressed us with performance as well as price, and what the company’s learnt there has been applied to its latest dropper post.
