Race Face Aeffect dropper seatpost
The dropper post has forever changed the way we mountainbike. The simple act of raising and lowering the saddle on demand means more options, more progression and more fun. The new Aeffect dropper post by Race Face capitalizes on fun. A budget friendly but rock solid option for riders wanting to enter the dropper market. A sealed damping system wrapped in 7075 aluminum makes for a lightweight dropper that can take the hits. Internal cable routing compatible for modern frame design and available in the two most popular drop measurements, it's easy to swap out your standard post and upgrade your ride.
- Infinite travel adjust Fully extended or fully dropped and anywhere inbetween
- Standard shifter cable and housing for easy repairs and maintenance
- Internal cable routing compatible with modern frame designs
|Weight||540g (125 travel), 570g (150 travel)|
The remote that came with my personal dropper (can't vouch for all droppers) was trash. The mounting system stripped very easily. I had to buy the raceface turbine dropper (something that I would do regardless, it's amazing.)
Ive noticed that the stanchion almost seems loose, meaning that I can wiggle the saddle maybe 1/2 of a degree (very small amount) back and forth. This has no apparent negative effect on the dropper's performance or durability.
It performs as expected. It won't be as smooth as a fox transfer performance, but it's also about half of the price. It's mechanically actuated and internally routed, which takes the pain away from bleeds (like the reverb) and avoids cable clutter and noise.
for the price, I rate 4/5. If it cost any more, I'd bump down to 3/5.
I wish that raceface made a 170mm version, but I'm also very tall.
I hope my review helped.
