KS LEV 27.2mm Seatpost

In the world of modern all-mountain riding, an adjustable seat post is an invaluable upgrade that can significantly affect your ride quality. The Kind Shock LEV features 100mm of travel to keep you in the right position for any terrain.

  • Superlight air/oil height adjustable seatpost, about 100 grams lighter than other KS posts (460g)
  • Stationary remote cable routing, locates housing stop below the center collar
  • Housing stop rotates 360 degrees around the post for custom cable routing options
  • Locks anywhere in vertical range (which means the post will not extend when lifting the bike by the saddle)
  • 2-bolt micro-adjustable seat rail clamp, angled bolts increase clamp strength
  • Remote features a carbon fiber remote handlebar release lever, inline barrel adjuster and braided cables (ODI Lock-On compatible)

I;d read just how good dropper posts were and ive been really happy with this one. It works great, looks great. Love how you can adjust the position to any point so it can be high for road and then a little lower for trails and then right down out of the way for steep sections and jumps.

it was a little fiddly to install, and while the handlebar shifter is great with the way it acts as a lock on for ODI grips, I do find it gets in the way of my front gear shifter a bit. This wouldn't be an issue with any 1xX bikes though.

I have this seat post for four rides and now it sticks and don't fully return up until I pull it with my hand. I barely torque the seat clamp to test it but still sticks. Side to side play is also getting worst. I am totally done with it and this thing is going back.

    Comments about KS Lev 27.2mm Seatpost:

    Have been riding with this post for a bit now, and I'm amazed at how it changed my riding for the better. First time I tried it out (across my lawn) I could already tell it was going to be good.
    I really like the remote's size and shape- good at staying out of the way and fitting in smaller spaces. The post actuates a little slower than others I have seen, but this is a good thing in my opinion, as I'm not a fan of having certain areas tenderized.
    I was pleasantly surprised that the post was all black- the newest version- Jenson ought to put an updated picture on their site.
    Otherwise, I can't comment on reliability or longevity of the post, as I've only been using it for a few weeks. I will say that it's a good idea to have your LBS install the post- cost me about $20 but I'll bet it saved me a load of frustration.
    All in all a great product as far as I can tell. It's a little spendy, but it does what it is supposed to do, and well.

      A really nice product. Cable routing becomes an issue depending on your frame and handlebar setup but that's not really something that is avoidable.

      Installed this on my lynskey 29er hardtail and it has transformed the ride. Makes it super easy to shift your weight around and I feel more confident on the gnar. Fixed cable entry is awesome. Only downside is the price and limited 100mm drop. Lever is a little bit awkward on rough stuff too.

          Comments about KS Lev 27.2mm Seatpost:

          I am running this seatpost on my Ritchey 650b. It functions well and compares favourably to other adjustable seatposts I own.
          I didn't realise till installation that it is a sealed unit, meaning that air pressure can not be altered from the factory setting.
          It is slower to return to full height than I'd prefer, but is functioning as intended.
          I especially like the ability to rotate the head of the unit, thus being able to customize the cable entry/exit point to my frame... a nice touch.

          works pretty well,

                I bought this KS Lev as I needed a 27.2mm diameter drop post for my hardtail. I found it a little fiddly to install the cable as the instructions weren't very clear (although a more capable mechanic would probably have no problems at all).
                It is an expensive upgrade, but worthwhile. So far performance has been faultless.
