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)

      Comments about KS LEV 27.2mm Seatpost:

      I;d read just how good dropper posts were and ive been really happy with this one. It works great, looks great. Love how you can adjust the position to any point so it can be high for road and then a little lower for trails and then right down out of the way for steep sections and jumps.

      it was a little fiddly to install, and while the handlebar shifter is great with the way it acts as a lock on for ODI grips, I do find it gets in the way of my front gear shifter a bit. This wouldn't be an issue with any 1xX bikes though.

      Comments about KS LEV 27.2mm Seatpost:

      I am running this seatpost on my Ritchey 650b. It functions well and compares favourably to other adjustable seatposts I own.
      I didn't realise till installation that it is a sealed unit, meaning that air pressure can not be altered from the factory setting.
      It is slower to return to full height than I'd prefer, but is functioning as intended.
      I especially like the ability to rotate the head of the unit, thus being able to customize the cable entry/exit point to my frame... a nice touch.

      Easy to install,
      good quality,
      everything included in the package
      works pretty well,
      sometimes does not go all the way up as expected (May have to increase pressure)

            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.

            Comments about KS LEV 27.2mm Seatpost:

            I bought this KS Lev as I needed a 27.2mm diameter drop post for my hardtail. I found it a little fiddly to install the cable as the instructions weren't very clear (although a more capable mechanic would probably have no problems at all).
            It is an expensive upgrade, but worthwhile. So far performance has been faultless.

              Comments about KS LEV 27.2mm Seatpost:

              Bike was pretty much the way I wanted it already. I'd seen these and hear how everyone who gets them loves them. Well, count me in too. I've put a bunch of miles on mine and the enthusiasm has not faded one bit. If you are like me and think you might like one. Do yourself a favor and go for it.

              The remote lever that works with the lock-on grips makes for a clean cockpit. Also the cable attaches to the middle of the post so it doesn't go up and down with the seat. I'm big rider at 200 lbs and no reliability issue so far.
