Giant Contact SL Switch Seatpost
The Giant Contact SL Switch Seat-post helps you master tricky off-road terrain by providing height adjustability. Easy to use and is incredibly lightweight (for a dropper post). One of the most unique features of the Giant Contact SL Switch Seatpost is the option to go from external to internal wiring, giving it loads of versatility.
- Anti-Twist Technology keeps the saddle firmly positioned
- Proprietary air & oil cartridge offers smooth consistent load range adjustment
- Improved design easily switches from external to internal cable routing
- Secure 2-bolt clamp design
- Clamp design compatible with standard 7mm (alloy) or 9mm (composite) saddle rails
- Extra long lower saddle rail guide designed to cradle lightweight saddle rails securely
- Cable, housing, and lever are included
The only gripe I would have is the crummy remote lever that comes with it. I've switched those out for other brands each time though and haven't looked back. Solid Dropper Post.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (You Decide):
This post can be configured to run both internally or externally, but the instructions are lacking and the allen/hex screws to do so came pre-stripped!
It shipped set up for internal
When setup external, the cable runs to the bottom of the seat and moves with the seat, very annoying
The internal gas cartridge can be replaced, but they're hard to find and not inexpensive
A two year warranty, but only if the post is purchased and installed by an authorized Giant dealer. Lame if you do your own work
The lever is not great, usable, but not great
It did come with quality Jagwire cable and housing
It goes up and down, not terribly smoothly, so far without fail however in the 2 months of use as of writing this review in temps down into the 40s. Colder weather is incoming, so we'll see.
It has slight side-to-side play, and slight up and down play, but it doesn't seem to affect anything so far.
Not sure yet if I made the right choice over the Fox Transfer, but I will say I'm not sure I could trail ride without a dropper ever again!

Q & A
The Revel 29er should be able to accommodate this post in the 30.9mm diameter. It does not appear to have internal seat cable routing, so you would need to set this up in its external cable configuration.
