X-Fusion Hilo Dropper Seatpost

A "dropper" seatpost has quickly become the must-have accessory for todays 5-6" travel trailbikes. Why? These bikes are being ridden more and more aggressively, and riders want to ride them all over the mountain. A height-adjustable seatpost allows you to ride with the post at full height for pedaling performance, then drop it down and out of the way for more aggressive, steep terrain.

X-Fusions entry, the HILO, uses a hydraulic mechanism to allow 100mm of travel adjustment, activated by a convenient bar-mounted remote.

Even on an entry level XC bike this seat post will make your confidence skyrocket as you progress through more challenging, technical downhills where keeping your COG behind the wheel is necessary then returning to the right height to tear up the uphill. Infinite positions gives you the flexibility to adapt to any terrain and riding scenario. Looks great, even the remote. Couldn't recommend this more.

The X-Fusion Hilo was easy to install and worked great for the 1st month. On my last ride I noticed a little oil leaking. By the end of the ride, the seals had failed and oil was leaking everywhere. Maybe I got a lemon, but I'm switching to a different brand.

Awesome Dropper!

By Chris L

Comments about X-Fusion Shox X-Fusion Hilo Dropper Seatpost:

Love my dropper post, especially this one! It works great on my bike and set up was reletively easy! The remote lever for this post is designed to be mounted anywhere on the bars, left or right and words when pressed in any direction. This makes it work so well when bouncing through the trails and operation is smooth and quick.

Comments about X-Fusion Shox X-Fusion Hilo Dropper Seatpost:

Like I read in another review, it doesn't always return to original high position on first try. But up to now, the second remote lever activation reestablishes the highest position.
After I installed it, I couldn't do without it any more.

Flimsy

By Andy

Comments about X-Fusion Shox X-Fusion Hilo Dropper Seatpost:

I run a Dropper from a kinda similar brand in its echo 10 line. It's significantly better quality and the action is much smoother.

This dropper rotates in the seat tube and has a lot of play in the seat. You have to hit the button twice to get t to come all the way up, which is annoying. I'm not talking 1/4 of an inch either- it's a full 2 inches sometimes. The button is just weird- it's more like a lever and definitely gets in the way.

I don't have any of these issues on my there dropper. The only reason I went for this one was due to the smaller seat tube size on my trail bike. The competition does not make a dropper in this size within my price range.

I would not recommend it.

Feels cheap. Actuates very slowly. Won't lean forward enough

By Jeff

from Tucson, AZ

Comments about X-Fusion Shox X-Fusion Hilo Dropper Seatpost:

I have back pain from a slipped disc. I tilt my seats forward to avoid bending my spine too far forward. On most seatposts I set them ad the 10(degree?) forward hash mark. This is not designed to tilt that far forward. On top of that, it feels very poorly made. It actuates very slowly. I sent them an email about it but don't expect much help. The rail bolts are very soft metal and "round" out very easily. Jenson sent me spare bolts so now I can at least re-sell this piece.

    A dropper is a must have now days and the X fusion is a great way to go. Finding an affordable dropper and one that was 27.2 was difficult but X Fusion made it happen. I'm 6'5 and was afraid the 100 mm travel wouldn't be enough but it's perfect. I had my local bike shop install and there were no issues. The bat remote that activates it is convenient since its activated by pressing in any direction.

      Comments about X-Fusion Shox X-Fusion Hilo Dropper Seatpost:

      Finally a reasonably priced 27.2 mm dropper post. Fairly easy installation for an external dropper post, if you've run shifter or brake cables you'll be able to install this easily. The included remote works well, though the cable noticeable stretched after the first ride and required adjustment it's been trouble free since. The post works as advertised, pushing all the way down by hand is a bit difficult, but using body weight is no problem. Post pops up to maximum height easily, with a slight slow down at the top that I personally like. No durability concerns yet, but I've only been riding a few weeks and wouldn't expect problems at this point. 100 mm drop is a little lower than I'd prefer, but it's hard to find a longer drop in a 27.2 mm post as fits my older frame.

      If you have an older bike that you've transformed into a pseudo-trail hardtail, this will take your bike to another level for a great price.

      looks great.
      uses great.
      but can be smoother as RS or Thompson posts.

      its a good upgrade for me and makes me more confident going steeper hills and not have my berms stuck @ the saddle.
