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.
