X-Fusion Hilo SL Dropper Seatpost

X-Fusion Hilo SL 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-Fusion's Hilo SL, uses a hydraulic mechanism to allow 125mm of travel adjustment, activated by a convenient bar-mounted remote. The Hilo SL's alloy shaft provides 100 grams of weight savings over X-Fusions steel shaft models yet is still plenty durable enough to pass CEN testing for fatigue and impact. A double key-way design prevents lateral twisting and side to side movement and the two bolt clamp design allows for a wide range of seatpost angel adjustment. The anodized coating ensures buttery smooth adjustment and the included handlebar mounted remote lever make on-the-fly adjustments no trouble at all.

Features:

  • Hydraulic design allows for smooth adjustability
  • Double key-way design prevents lateral twisting
  • Passes CEN testing for fatigue and impact
  • Wide range of seatpost angle adjustment
  • 100 gram + weight saving over steel shaft models
  • Adjustments: Seat Post Angle Adjustable, Infinitive Travel Adjustable, Remote Lever
  • Length: 422mm
  • Insertion Depth: 217mm
  • Travel: 125mm
  • Weight: 450g (without cable)

Best product for the price

By Jack the ripper

from Dallas tx

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

It's a great well built product, a bit slow on movement and never really goes up to its max on its own, but it's awesome! If you can catch this thing on sale then go for it because it's well worth the price tag. Previously had a several hundred dollar giant contact dropper and was no better than this, plus the remote is really nifty if you install it with the cable nice and tight!

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

granted that it is not the smoothest of dropper post but at the cost and weight of the product and the lovely trigger design, i love it. this addition was an upgrade from my KA e-tern and it weighs in 350grms less! got it on sale so i was happy. and the delivery to Singapore was free as well due to it being a component (non bulky)

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

Post was trashed out of the box. Post would not fully actuate from time I installed it. Took to local bike shop and they said internal cartridge was already leaking, air and oil were mixed causing a sloshing noise and to not function correctly. Jenson was great to work with as usual and returned the item no problem.

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

      The remote actuator is far & above all of the other offerings in the field. The gimbaled actuator can be easily operated by a nudge in any direction with a knuckle which means you never have to take your hands or fingers off of the bars. It's all cable actuated so it's a very positive feel no hydraulic mush, just nudge it and up or down you go. There are no detents so set it anywhere along it's travel.

      I just can't say enough about the simplicity and efficiency of the actuator system, it just makes far more sense than any of the others on the market.

      -- How'd we ever get by without dropper posts? --

      I can't live without my dropper! That said, I wish X-Fusion would release a stationary external cable model (they do have an internal cable model). This model is great for the price and user rebuildable!

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

        I use this dropper 3-4 times a week riding local trails and single track near the beach in OC. With constant use and the salty beach air the Hilo continues to be smooth and work like new. My favorite part of this post is the price, at only $249 its hard to find a post this good anywhere near that price point. My only gripe is that I wish the switch cable was internally routed. Overall a super easy install and a great all around post for any type of riding.

          I use this post a few times a week on the shore and it really performs well. Smooth and responsive and reliable so far (2 months). The installation instructions are useless and I just looked at google images to get it set up right. Seems like the best dropper post for the money right now.
