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)

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.

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.

One of the best droppers sea with 27.2 diameters

By FT

Comments about KS Lev 27.2mm Seatpost:

Dropper seat post is really awesome when you have a lot up and downhills. This one is not the cheapest and doesn't work precise and efficient like Rock Shocks Reverb (I have one), but does a good job. For those with 27.2mm post, this is probably a good option in the market. I use it to run races and have been working fine after a couple of weeks.

Improve your technical riding

By Tom

from Fort Collins, CO

Comments about KS Lev 27.2mm Seatpost:

Overall, I am pleased with the LEV 27.2 I received from Jenson.

I have been using another LEV for the last couple of years on a different MTB with good results, which is why I purchased this new 27.2. While this new dropper works well, I am not pleased with the enclosed user manual. On page 5 (Saddle Installation) the directions say "… remove the air valve cap from the top end of the stanchion tube." There actually is no air valve cap – the 27.2 is a sealed unit. I was confused because my older LEV does have an air valve. I would prefer to have an air valve because my old unit raises the seat faster. The 27.2 is rather slow, but after a couple of rides, I am getting used to it.

The description on Jenson's web page (which I am sure came from Kind Shock) says the seatpost weighs 460g. I weighed it on my digital scale at 477g for just the post – not the necessary hardware. The cable, lever, etc. weigh another 92g. The whole thing weighs 569 grams.

Great upgrade for my carbon hard tail Orbea Alma

Comments about KS Lev 27.2mm Seatpost:

After reviewing dropper seat post options, I decided to go with the KS Lev. My initial impressions are that this is a quality product, it is well built and so far has performed without a glitch. Having the ability to lower the center of gravity while descending has added more confidence and I am able to descend faster and has resulted in hitting PRs on my local loop.

    Comments about KS Lev 27.2mm Seatpost:

    More inclined to ride trails as I now don't need to keep stopping to lower/raise seat post. I ride a single speed mountain bike so riding at seat height that is a compromise between climbing and descending to alleviate constant stopping to adjust seat height places undue stress on knees while climbing (seat too low, greater knee flexion at 12 o'clock pedal position).

      Comments about KS Lev 27.2mm Seatpost:

      Unfortunately the first time I received the post it was dead on arrival according to my local bike mechanic it might have been due to it sitting around for awhile. However the great folks at Jenson sent a replacement and it worked perfectly. The dropper is smooth to engage and hasn't failed on any occasion. The trigger is small and light with the engagement made easy.

        I can't believe I waited this long to ride with a DP! My bike is a totally different animal now. It turns and descend so fast; and the weight penalty is minimal.
        I ride "race" hardtails and this is simply the ultimate invention for a mtb. PERIOD

          Works reasonably well. Doesn't always come up to full height. Have to compress and then release to get it to full height on the trail. But you don't need to stop to do that action. Installation was doable but the instructions weren'the always helpful. Obviously they have made some changes to the design and did not update the instructions.

                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.
