- FORM Alloy frame
- RockShox Pike Select RC 140mm fork
- RockShox Deluxe Select+ RT shock
- Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain
- WTB ST Light i30 Rims w/Maxxis Minion 2.4" tires
- Race Face Aeffect R dropper post
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
