I've always wanted to jump on the dropper post wagon bit the price has always been too high for what I wanted to spend. The KS Eten is priced just right for what a dropper post is worth to me. Keep in mind that this is the first dropper I've ever used but I think the only places it's lacking compared to its bigger brothers is weight and only having one bolt to secure the saddle (who cares??? It still offers forward and rear tilt angle). Since this is the only dropper I've ever used, I have no idea how much heavier it is. I can tell you it is heavier than my standard aluminum post that it replaced (duh).

As far as installation goes, it is pretty straight forward aside from the fact that the instructions are almost non-existent. Everything you need to install the post comes with the kit aside from extra wire ties to route the remote cable back to your dropper.

Functionality speaking, I love how the adjustment throughout the 100mm of travel are infinite. Meaning you can position the post at any desired height throughout the travel of the post. Simply push the remote to disengage the post, put weight on your seat, and then depress the remote to lock it into place. Simple and sweet. The post holds firm at any given length you lock it into. There is a little side-to-side play with the saddle and coming from a person that is super picky with seat positon, you can take my thoughts on this to the bank... You can't notice it while you ride! The speed at which the post returns the saddle is fast but not super fast. I've seen a specialized post that can launch things off of it like a catapult. It's nowhere near as fast but still gets your seat back into position in a hury w/out the potential of racking your nuts.

All-in-all you really can't ask for a better post at this price. It's smooth and reliable functionality are all you really need. That combined with its durability in regards to holding up the riders weight are fantastic. I'm an aggressive XC rider that likes to dabble in AM as well. This thing seems to be doing the trick so far. I agree with others that once you go with a dropper, you'll never go back!!!

One last thing, I do wish this post was a tad longer (400mm as opposed to 385mm). Male sure you measure your current post to ensure you'll have enough height past the recommended max height on this product.

I bought this product for my wife's bike. Install wasnt overly complicated. At the hand lever the cable sticks out and is capped off, making it stick out a bit, not the most attractive design. It took a little bit of adjustment of the cable to get it just right, the instructions in the box were pretty vague on setting the tolerance of the cable and weren't correct anyway. After a couple rides the seat began to fall and rise on its own so it took some readjusting,. then again a few weeks later the post had the same symptoms. Since then the post hasnt had any symptoms. The dropper post is pretty slow to drop and rise, at least compared to my Reverb, but that's on the opposite end of the spectrum and price. Now that it has worked consistently I'd say it is a good value, especially at less than half the cost of other dropper posts, but it is definitely not a perfect product.

Comments about KS Eten Remote Seatpost:

This is the only dropper i have owned, but I have been more than pleased with it. For less than $150 on this site it's almost unbelievable that it's worked so well. The dropping action is smooth, the rebound is crisp and even has that satisfying "thunk" that so many look for. Another huge plus is that it isn't notched, like the command post and others, so it has infinite positions along the travel. I also bought the southpaw lever that KS offers and really like the position of it on the cockpit much more than the stock lever. The few negatives on this post are the weight and questionable durability. It's fairly heavy. My first eTen (one I tried out as a used part, don't know how much use I t saw before I got it) didn't have the solid rebound the new one has. It was a little sluggish and sounded like it had a leak. All in all, I couldn't be happier with a "budget" component like this. No doubt I'll go back to a KS product when I decide to upgrade

Comments about KS Eten Remote Seatpost:

The post is useful for those wanting the extra space while biking. It was difficult to install and the instructions where junk. The clamp broke when tightening down. I also lost the cable bolt during a ride and had to jerry rig something to work. I mean for less than half the price its hard to beat but don't expect this to work flawlessly or be installed easily.

Comments about KS Eten Remote Seatpost:

Easy to install, a little tricky to set up. Make sure you follow the instructions or you'll get a little slow decrease in seat height.

I can't really say enough about this dropper. So smooth, adjusts on the fly. Comes back up at a good pace. No problems yet after the first ride. I'll update after a few months of riding this summer.

For the money it is difficult to beat.

    I was the last hold out in our tribe for purchasing a dropper seat post. All the other knuckleheads purchased bikes with them so I had to make the extra effort. I finally made the leap after talking with a much younger and aggressor rider who suggested the KS Eten. His reasoning, its durable, its reasonably priced and it works. Directions lacking I was able to figure out the install. Took it up to Snow Summit and simply put it took my riding to another level. I love it!!!

    This dropper post is great for the money. As some others stated, it does have a little play in it but you will never notice it while you are riding. Always drops and rises when i need it to. Heavier than the nicer dropper posts out there but half the cost. Worth every penny.

      Comments about KS Eten Remote Seatpost:

      You really can't beat the price but maybe that has something to do with the quality?

      6 months into owning the post when you have it in a full drop setting then have the post come back up, if you put any weight on it within the first 10 seconds it will drop down about 2" before it stops dropping any further.

      If you count to 10 before sitting back down the post doesn't move and works fine.

      I've had this post now for 1.5yrs and so long as I count its fine but man is that annoying.

      Cheap plastic Remote broke instantly when I tried to fasten it to the handlebars. Very poor design. Otherwise it would have been a nice price of kit. I would have paid an extra 10 or 20 dollars for a decent aluminum or at least aluminium enforced remote... Now I can't even use it.

      I use this for all mountain/enduro riding and it works great. not the lightest post out there but it does the job. It is a little slow coming up, but better than it shooting straight up. The lever on the bars is very comfortable to use and looks great. There is a little wiggle in the seat but is unnoticeable when riding.
      Overall, I recommend getting this dropper post if you don't have one and don't want to drop a ton of cash into one. Its a great dropper for a great price.
