Leaked Patent: Shimano Designs An Electric Dropper Post and More
Sneak Peak: Shimano’s Latest Patent For Electronic Components
We recently spoke with Daniel Bacon, a patent engineer and the founded of wheelbased.com to get an idea of new products to come. Immediately capturing our attention was a patent from Shimano reveling a design for an electric dropper post along with other electronic controls. Could we be riding this new design from Shimano in the near future, at this point we don’t know, but we hope to be the first to confirm these parts should they become reality.
