KS Lev-Dx Seatpost 125mm

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 silky-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

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!

Set up is difficult, had to search on line for installation guidence.
Entire unit has to be disassembled with specialized tools to adjust location of cable interface.
Failure of cable interface assembly with in 1st mile of 1st ride, had to zip tie cabling in very specific way to keep everything in place.
After all of these issues this unit was extremely satisfying to use and saddle stays exactly where ever you want it to.
I think KS is really on to some thing with this product, but I would have been happier with a direct to saddle cabling set up.

Excellent dropper. I've had no issues with so far after about over 20 hrs of trail ride. The cable box is fixed but it's perfect for my set up.
Thanks @jenson for a great buy

Had a dropper system with a moving cable/housing which was wearing away the frame.
KS LEV DX has a fixed, external cable/housing, operates smoothly and provides various options for remote mounting location.

    Comments about KS Lev-Dx Seatpost 125mm:

    The LEV Dx is much nicer than the exploded eten I replaced. Operates faster, same great remote. That said the procedure to change the cable routing is extremely aggravating, the youtube video (once you find it) shows how to adjust the cable routing, which requires complete disassembly of the post. KS makes it look easy, however the post they disassemble in the video has no Loctite on it. Mine sure did and was a nightmare to get apart. I did finally get it apart and moved, had to make the vise way tighter than I liked and hold the post with a strap wrench to keep it from spinning. Just built another bike and set it up with a LEV Integra. Spend the extra couple bucks. The hassle isn't worth the couple bucks you save!

      Works flawlessly so far. The Dx version must be completely dissassembled to rotate cable (unfortunately), but at least it can be done.

      I love the travel of the dropper it is smoother and quick to engage. The cable that came with it is too short:(. I bought a new cable and replaced the original cable to get closer on my thumb reach. Overall, I'm enjoying it especially during downhill and switch backs.

      Comments about KS Lev-Dx Seatpost 125mm:

      KS Lev weakness is the STRING that runs from control box at seatpost clamp, to the bottom cup (inside frame). Mine needed warranty service 2 times in one year. Mail it to L.A. And wait........wait.........wait. The good thing about this post is handlebar lever, and you can do all of the service yourself. I could not rely on operation on a road trip, so I switched to Gravity Dropper (which is nowhere near as plush as LEV). Good post overall, and if you get lucky, you get a hassle free unit.
