Spied: New 6 Inch Kind Shock Dropper Seatpost

Thanks to a certain champion mountain bike racer’s Twitter feed, we caught a glimpse of what’s to come from the folks at Kind Shock. Not only does this dropper seat post from KS have a whopping 6 inches of travel, it also features a cleverly placed remote hose that keeps the hose from moving with the post. I’ve heard many riders voice their desire for this exact set up, and it appears that KS is listening.

Clearly, this is set to tackle the Rock Shox Reverb Stealth head on, while offering a better cable routing solution for bikes that lack internal routing for the Stealth. More when we have it!
