KS LEV-DX Seatpost 125mm

As a beloved member of the Kind Shock seatpost family, the LEV-DX is the newest price point model in seatpost innovation. With up to five inches of delightfully smooth travel, the aluminum dropper post features a polycarbonate trigger/clamp and cable junction cap for a sleek yet durable finish! As the only hydraulically locked and air sprung post to feature zero cable movement, the LEV-DX housing stop is placed below the center collar and rotates 360 degrees around the post for custom cable routing options. The post locks anywhere in the vertical range and will not extend when you lift the saddle for more permanent adjustments. In the modern world of off-road pedaling, an adjustable seatpost is an invaluable upgrade that ensures you’re in optimal riding-position with the push of a remote, and the LEV-DX is a fine choice for achieving just that.

  • Aluminum dropper with an alloy seat clamp and bolt, polycarbonate trigger/clamp and cable junction cap
  • 125mm drop with the same air/oil system as the original LEV
  • 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, post will not extend when lifting the saddle
  • 2-bolt micro-adjustable seat rail clamp, angled bolts increase clamp strength
  • 540g (30.9x125mm)
  • Travel: 125mm
  • Diameter: 30.9 and 31.6
  • Length: 385mm

    Recently bought this product and have some good and bad to say about it. First Droppers Seats do not work good on full suspension mountain bikes due to the seat post area in the frame. No manufacture makes a short body dropper seat, so your seat will still kinda sit high. Its a good product and well designed but for my 2011 GT Ruckus 7 2.0 I need a dropper seat with 1/2 the seat post length.

    I have had the KS lev 30.9 with 125mm travel for just over one year now. Previously, I owned command post, Gravity dropper and rockshox reverb and kronolog. I will start by saying LEV does have a very smooth feel when it works and probably is the lightest of the hydrolic group. The remote lever was easy to set up and was easy to activate and rock solid. I did however end up sending the unit back to KS for warranty work after two months of use. Now, the post will raise when pulled on the seat. Another major issue is then seat clamp. The spherical bolts and nuts that hold the seat clamp will come loose even when torqued above specs resulting in lost bolts. They have no resolution on this and bolts are backordered with no eta. I gave it a two star because KS has horrible customer service. They have no representatives to even answer phones. Only voicemail and no one will respond. Parts are almost impossible to find and after calling two LBS I came to learn they are the hardest to deal with. Stick with a reputable company like rockshox or gravity dropper.

        The first time I used this post, I had to make adjustments to the seat height, naturally... A slight drop of the seat with the stantion softly coming down on the frame, snapped the little plastic clip that connects the cable to the post. It's pretty much non-functional already. It turns out that I have friends that have had the same problem. Basically, if KS replaced the piece of plastic with a little piece of metal the problem would be solved. They really skimped here...

          I've only a couple rides with this dropper but it's worked flawless. VERY easy to install. Makes riding much more fun even when your not going downhill! If you've never used one you'll see a BIG difference in your abilities and confidence.

              Installation:
              Unless someone has installed one of these posts before, they would have had to do some of their own research to mount it properly. There is a "warning" lable on the post itself that said "Read both sides before installation". There is a "red" cap (mine was black) that needed to be installed after the cable mount was installed (to avoid damage to the ferrule). Since the warning mentioned red cap, it was a bit confusing, since there was none… Looking back now after the first installation, it is quite simple (only if you know what you need to look for).
              Riding:
              Found that the post didn't come back up unless it was fully dropped (for the first few rides anyway). Sometimes a double (seat) bounce would bring the post back to normal position. Apart from that, really cannot fault the post so far – loving it!

                If you will need to align the seat, it is madness. Special tools are needed and you practically need to take the whole darn thing apart. Watch this YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vftoj9qU8II. Maybe it's just me, but I think it is crazy.

                Once (re)built and installed, it works great. Smooth movement. I don't know how I rode my bikes without a dropper post.

                I love the action of this post and the lever ergos are good. For the most part, it seems to be a quality unit. What I hate is the junky j-box side cover. Mine does not stay on and I have had to use electrical tape to hold it from day one. Even when I received it, the j-box cover was secured with tape "right out of the box". The retaining tang was not damaged. The other problem is, if seat alignment is off relative to the desired cable entry position, several special tools are required and involved work is needed. This is too much complexity for a customer to deal with.
