The Brand-X Ascend XL Dropper Seatpost sets new standards for reliability and performance at a fantastic price point.
The Brand-X Ascend XL Seatpost is only compatible with bikes that can use an internally routed dropper. (Please note that it cannot be converted to external cable actuated.) The 170mm Seatpost is cable actuated at the bottom of the post via a linkage mechanism which eliminates cable pull/movement, to ensure consistent performance time and time again.
The ergonomic shifter-style remote lever is designed to be run where your front shifter would usually sit. This means that the Brand-X Ascend XL 170mm Dropper post is ideally suited for those using a 1x chain ring set-up; without a front derailleur. However, a paddle-style shifter is available aftermarket for those who want to use the Ascend XL dropper post with a front derailleur and shifter.
