9point8 Pulse Dropper Seatpost Adds Thumb Lever, Steps Down Price
Last summer, Canadian company 9point8 dropped a new take on the height adjustable seat post with their Pulse.
The design uses a stepped dropping motion, falling or rising in 5mm increments with a short click/pull of the remote lever, or dropping/rising all the way with a full push/pull. Video in the launch story shows the action in detail. Now, they’ve added a thumb lever option to complement the original (and nearly full size) brake lever remote. It’s shown above, and it adds some nifty mounting options thanks to a very versatile design.
Video of that and a comparison pic below…
The original lever (left) mounts above and inboard of your shifter and standard brake lever mount. The new, much smaller thumb lever (right) adds options.
In other news, the price has dropped to $449 USD for 2014.
