X-Fusion Hilo Strate Dropper Seatpost

Aggressive riders need to be free. Free to move forward or over the bike as the terrain calls for it. A seat post and saddle can definitely hinder this movement.

It mounts To the bike with super clean internal seat tube routing, features a two bolt style head for perfect angle adjustments and comes with a cable actuated BAT remote. This remote can be mounted underneath the left hand side of the handlebar where the front shifter used to be.

Features :

  • Internal seat tube activation
  • Cable activation with BAT remote for easy set up
  • Double key-way design prevents lateral twisting
  • Wide range of seatpost angle adjustment with two bolt style head

  • Diameter: 30.9mm or 31.6mm
  • Length: 422mm or 447mm

The thru frame model has an interesting and challenging release cable mechanism at the base of the post stem. It requires just a few mm to activate, and just a few mm to attach. It took a bit of trial and error to dial in the performance. Lots of on-line reference material...

Excellent for the price

By Tyrebyter

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

Installing takes some finesse and as another reviewer suggested, throw the instructions away. When the instructions say to get the cable clamp screw very tight, well, that's a bit subjective. But technical support was quick to send a new release casting, though they could not offer a proper torque value for the screw. Once installed, the post did what it was supposed to do, and did it well. The BAT handle release is interesting, with pressure at any angle actuating a drop. Matter of taste, I suppose, but I prefer a gutted front shifter as a release lever. After maybe 300 miles the seal head had backed off and oil made a rapid exit. Restoring function was simple: raise seal head and drip automatic transmission fluid into the reservoir until full and reinstall the head with a strap wrench... and wash all the oil off the bike.
With that kind of trouble, why four stars? The post performs as good as my KS Lev at much lower cost, both are made in China and actually it is easier to service, though I found that out a little sooner than expected. With a proper manual and better quality control, this would be a five star post.

Poor Instuctions

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

Mechanically looks good and functions pretty good as well. The instructions they could have just saved the paper. A 1st grader could have done a better job writing the instructions . I had to figure it out by trial and error , but it turned out just fine. Giving it 5 stars for product , 0 for instructions. I guess X fusion assumes everyone puts one on all the time and it's a no brainer. If I were to put on another it would be a no brainer, but as being a first time dropper post user a little explanation would have saved some time and effort.

Works great so far. Tough to install. Poor instructions

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

Have done a few 10-15 mile rides on San Luis Obispo trails with the post and it's working great. Install was a pain, though. I measured the cable exactly as described, but it ended up being way to slack to activate the post so I had to redo the install. The second time I put as much tension as I could on the cable (which made installing the lever back onto the post really difficult) and it worked only sporadically for about thirty minutes. I decided screw it, I'm not spending this much on a post to not take it out right away. So I rode the trails behind the house and it performed great! I don't know if it just needed to cycle up and down a few times, but I haven't had any major issues since. As for downsides, the cable tension still seems a little loose at the lever. There is also some creaking if you sit on the post in the down position, but that is nitpicking. The instruction manual is pretty much useless and the online videos could use some updating, but as long as the reliability holds I will be satisfied with the product.
