KS Lev Integra dropper post-$360

M1GiftGuide-KS-LevA dropper post has pretty much been standard equipment on new bikes, ranging from cross-country rockets to downhill-blasting enduro rigs. Simply lowering a rider’s seat can provide them with loads of confidence on a descent and the ability to quickly return saddle height to the correct position for a climb. The KS Lev Integra post is a great option, as it’s cable-actuated and fairly easy to set up. The Integra version is designed to be routed internally, while the normal Lev version uses an external cable.
