Mountain Bike Action Product Test: Wolf Tooth’s Remote Barcentric Dropper Post Lever

Wolf Tooth Remote Barcentric Dropper Post Lever

Wolf Tooth Components is a company comprised of hardcore cyclists with engineering backgrounds who spend their time dreaming about new and innovative bike components. We were eager to test Wolf Tooth’s latest ReMote BarCentric dropper post lever, hoping we could add another cleverly designed component to our must-have list.

Tech features:

Adding one extra lever to a handlebar can make things cluttered and chaotic. The ReMote BarCentric is a sleek dropper post lever designed to meet the need for space on bike handlebars with front shifters, lockout levers or even e-bike controls that may prevent a stock dropper post lever from functioning properly. The lever features four potential positions to avoid any interference with existing levers. The smooth, sealed Enduro bearing design that wraps the handlebar serves as a pivot point to provide extra leverage and allow easier actuation of the lever. The dropper post lever weighs just 41 grams, is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and is made in the USA.

 

Field test results:

We have had some issues with the clearance and function of the Fox Transfer Post remote lever while running a Fox 2-Position shock remote on our handlebars. The setup is very annoying and challenging to navigate. The BarCentric solves this problem! We removed the stock dropper lever that hindered the shock lockout’s functionality. The BarCentric comes with an efficient cable routing system for a crisp wiring package that neatly clears the brake levers. Including the lever width, it only takes up 15mm of handlebar space. Wolf Tooth has also addressed the ergonomics of having a lockout and a remote on the same side of the handlebar. The lock-on clamp attaches to your handlebar and can be adjusted easily with the four-point lever system.

This system optimizes the lever clearance in relation to the Fox Transfer lockout switch while still allowing comfortable actuation of the lever on the trail. The lever can be pressed with very little effort. This is not the least expensive lever option; however, it does solve the issues with the Wolf Tooth Components is a company comprised of hardcore cyclists with engineering backgrounds who spend their time dreaming about new and innovative bike components.
