EB13: Kind Shock Adds Carbon LEV Dropper Seatpost – Standard & Stealth Options
Kind Shock (aka KS Suspension) showed off a prototype of their LEV Carbon dropper seatpost early in the year. At that time, they were shooting for a feathery 325g weight. As these draw nearer to production, though, they’ve inched up to a claimed weight of 400g.
The post is UD carbon fiber, as is the saddle cradle and head. It’ll have just 65mm of vertical drop, making it a better option for XC and some enduro type riding rather than full on freeride. Retail should be just under $600 when it starts shipping middle of 2014. There will be standard and Integra stealth versions available in either 30.9 or 31.6 diameters. More pics below…
Ti hardware and a solid dual bolt design should make for easy adjustments without slippage.
