KS Lev Seatpost 125mm

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 125mm 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)

    If you are looking for the best seatpost on the market this is it. The flip-side of that is that it has one of the heaviest prices as well, although there are a few more expensive posts out there.

    At 460 grams this is currently the lightest dropper post as far as I've been able to find. KindShock has also been at the forefront of the static cable setup with the cable terminating at the collar, and at the bottom of the post with the Lev Integra. While this is not a make-or-break feature it makes setup and cable maintenance easier, cleaner, and less prone to mechanical issues or snags. One can also orient the termination point of the cable at the post 360 degrees to best accommodate each frame.

    The remote lever is one of the most inconspicuous, and comfortable levers I've used on a post. Further, the remote lever can take the place of many lock-on clamps on the inside position of your grips to minimize bar real estate usage. The lever can be positioned in multiple orientations on your bar to find the one that best suits your needs. I've found that a slightly straightened 90 degree brake noodle coming from the remote to the first portion of cable organizes the routing beautifully with your brake/shifter lines, and gives a solid point for your inline barrel adjuster to mount to making cable tension adjustment very simple and quick. I paint my brake noodle black to match.

    Wiggle in the head of the post is minimal, and not noticeable while riding. The lever actuation is light and quick, with the post responding with precise disengagement/engagement, and responsive rebound and compression. Also, the infinite adjustment allows the rider to determine what the best position of the post is instead of being predetermined by some engineer who is not riding the bike.

    Maintenance care has been minimal only keeping the post and seals clean between rides, and durability has been great for both posts that I've owned. The 125mm length seems to be the most fitted length for the average sized riders, while 100mm tends toward XC and smaller riders, and 150mm to taller riders. Remember to account for downtube shape when deciding on the longer lengths. Also, this is one of the few good posts that accommodate 27.2mm seat tubes.

    Finally, the Lev is good looking. While this is not the most important, it does add to the aesthetics of these machines that we spend a lot of hard earned cash on, and I, for one, like my bikes to look as good as they perform.

    Installed the post yesterday. First thing I noticed was the post lifted on its own when the bike was picked up by the seat. Trail rode today. When fully extended the post collapsed about 3/4". When fully collapsed the post could be easily extended by lifting the seat. Spoke to KS tech guy. He was very familiar with the problem when I described it - something about air in the hydraulics??????? "Send it in - around 2 weeks turnaround". Sooo........ less than 24 hours after installation the post is boxed and ready to send back to KS USA.

    The only bright side was my online purchasing experience with Jenson USA - good price, fast, efficient mailing.

    Comments about KS Lev Seatpost 125mm:

    The post is robust, and easy to clean and adjust with its barrel adjuster ect. I've ridden it in snow, rain, severe mud and everything else England can throw at it. The main problem, which is a deal breaker for me, is the poor seat clamp. It just doesnt hold the saddle in place regardless of how much torque you put on the nuts. Overtightening leads also to creaking and deforming of the plates. The saddle slides all the way back after about 30 mins of riding. I've read several internet posts describing the same problem with no visable outcome yet, and with very little help, if any, given from KindShock. Its a shame to be fair, aside from the shoddy clamp, the post really does work very well.

      Comments about KS Lev Seatpost 125mm:

      Wasn't sure how much I would use a dropper post since I've never had or felt like I needed one before but I'm glad I decided to give it a try. I have found I'm using the dropper post more than changing gears and would recommend one for everyone. Lee at Jenson recommended the Kind Shock Lev Seatpost and it has worked flawlessly, I installed it in about 30 minutes after watching a YouTube installation video and using the easy to follow directions. I haven't used other dropper seatposts so I can't give you a comparison but I've had no issues, there's zero cable movement, it's infinitely adjustable, easy to install, looks good and very smooth.

              Comments about KS Lev Seatpost 125mm:

              Worked fine for a while but after its first serious use in the wet, it developed a problem keeping itself at the 'fully down' position, and would rise up by itself. After adjusting the cable tension on the barrel adjuster it stays down most of the time and only rises up about 25mm at most, which still isn't ideal. Id send it back but the shipping fee from the UK would be the same price as a service for it at a local bike shop.

                I up graded from another dropper post. Which had a large hard to push thumb lever.
                The one on the KS is smaller and very easy to push.
                I drop the seat 3x more now than before.
                Before I had to plan in advance when to drop the seat, so I could find and push the lever.
                Now the button is next to the shift levers and is as quick and easy to use as changing gears.
                I ride very narrow single track with a lot of drops and step-ups. I drop the seat on all steps, drops and switch backs. I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT, and can ride much safer now.

                  I knew having read the reviews that this was considered about the best dropper available now. Great price on JensonUSA, and very happy with my purchase, works perfectly as expected. Pretty easy to install and very smooth in use. Its my first (and I hope only) dropper post!

                    I've only used it twice but so far I love it!!! Lightweight and easy to install. Must have a nice cable cutter to put on the small pieces effectively or else some cable strands will be left out messy. It was my first time to install it but took me less than 30 mins to do it.

                    Easy to install as per the instructions supplied. First rides have been a blast with the ability to change ride height on the fly. Increases seated climbing ability on mixed rides. Takes a few rides to make seat height adjustment part of the total flow when riding, but worth the small learning curve.

                      I've had one other KS seatpost that is still going strong. Got a new bike, needed a dropper, there was no other choice in my books. Works better than my old one due to the new attachment point - smooth and (so far) reliable. Aces.
