The Brand-X Ascend dropper post is one of our favourite products here at the Bikerack. Not only is the Ascend post Affordable, durable and reliable but it also outperforms many much more expensive seatposts on the market. It's no wonder most of the staff here have one on their bike.
We think a dropper post is the best upgrade you can make to your mountain bike and at this low cost and performance, it's hard not to choose the Brand-X ascend dropper post.
This model is designed for bikes with internal cable routing for a clean integrated setup. Coming in 30.9mm and 31.6mm sizes and with a choice of 170mm and 200mm of drop to get your saddle way down and out of the way.
While the Brand X Ascend XL dropper post is deigned for tall individuals and bikes with very short seat tubes, If you're a regular sized individual, check out standard Brand-X Ascend post for 125mm and 150mm options.
Brand-X's Ascend Dropper Seatpost was so good they decided to super-size it: the Ascend XL Dropper Seatpost offers longer travel for the long-legged rider or for those who prefer a greater scope of adjustment. Operated easily via a paddle style remote, this aluminium dropper seatpost lets the rider customise their saddle height for the trail ahead. The Ascend Dropper Seatpost set the benchmark for reliability and performance at an excellent price point, a proud tradition that the Ascend XL Dropper Seatpost will carry on.
Ergonomic Dropper Seatpost
This Brand-X Ascend Dropper Seatpost features an ergonomic remote lever that has been designed to run from where your front shifter normally sits. Ideally suited for those running a 1x chainring transmission without a front derailleur. However, a paddle style shifter is available aftermarket for those who want to use the Ascend XL Dropper Seatpost with a front derailleur and shifter.
The seatpost is cable actuated at the bottom of the post via a linkage mechanism which eliminates cable pull/movement, to ensure consistent performance time and time again.
