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:

It is a great product for the money (about half of the price of the closest alternative from Specialized).
I have installed it on my Stumpjumper FSR and I am extremely happy.
One of the best features is the variable height. Usually all other seatposts have 3 fixed positions: bottom, 2/3 and top. This seatpost is stoppable in any positionL: top, bottom and ANYWHERE in between.
The second best thing is seatpost's gentle rise - you will not get your family jewerly kicked (as it was with some other seatposts I tested).

The only unpleasant experience was installing it (guiding the cable inside the frame). But that Was probably my frame to blame, not the seatpost itself.

    For the money it is hard to complain. If I could drop a 100 grams then it would be ideal. Time will tell on durability but so far so good.

    Great buy but the reviews on the instructions are true.... They're bad. I didn't have to mount the trigger in place of the inside ring on my ODI grips as many have. I had plenty of room. It's a nice post, seems durable and for the money it works great. I ride a 2013 Rocky Mountain Slayer so the extra weight isn't a deal breaker. I'd spend the extra cash on a lighter dropper if I owned a lightweight xc bike. Down is easy and it pops up as quick as I need it to. Good buy!

    Easy to use. Changes your game.
    All the things your friends have said and all the things that you may have read that made you think that you might want a dropper post are true. So why wouldn't you.
    At this price? Duh.

    If you are looking for a budget dropper, you can't go wrong with KS eTen. It's on the heavier side but I'm not worried about weight. I've been using this for a couple of weeks now and don't have any complains about functionality. Smooth operation wether going up or down. The only thing that KS should change is to include the aluminum lever they have for sale instead of the plastic.

    Used on two mountain bikes - not only makes descent fun, but as an added benefit mount/dismount is a breeze.

    Written instructions lacking clarity on the cabling. Online videos solved that problem.

    Comments about KS Eten Remote Seatpost:

    For the money, this is a great option. Only encountered two issues so far:

    The cable stop uses an extremely tiny set screw. I was scared to torque down on the screw for fear of stripping it and this caused to cable to slip.

    Occasionally, the post will not go all the way back up and stops about an inch short. Releasing and pressing the button again seems to make it fully extend.

    If you want a dropper seat post that works well but doesn't cost a small fortune then this is perfect. A little heavier than most, but works perfectly and looks like it will be durable. If your bike cost $2k or less then it is difficult to justify buying anything fancier than this entry level KS dropper. Very happy with it.
