Designed to inspire confidence through versatility, adaptability and performance synonymous with the PRO name, the Koryak dropper post is a first from the brand.

Weighing in at 520g (including remote and cable) and available in 30.9- or 31.6mm diameter options, the Koryak adjustable alloy seat post brings 120mm of smooth non-
indexed travel for on-the-fly adjustability.

The smooth downward movement and quick, responsive upwards rebound of the post is provided by a replaceable air cartridge. The mechanism is operated by an internally routed cable, which runs down the seat post and through the frame, and is connected to a bar-mounted lever by Shimano’s OPTISLICK cables for optimum performance in the face of dirt and mud.

Two lever options are available, a regular up/down lever which can be mounted on the left or right of the bars, or a Firebolt-style lever (compatible with Shimano I-Spec II) for those running 1×11 or a SHIMANO SYNCHRONIZED SHIFT drivetrain, which takes advantage of the free left hand shift lever position for operating the dropper post. A full complement of spares are available including air cartridges and new bushings to prolong longevity.
