9point8 drops a new lever for the Fall Line seatpost

1x Digit lever developed with Wolf Tooth Components

Dropper seatpost manufacturer 9point8 has launched a new 1x-specific lever for its Fall Line seatpost designed in conjunction with Wolf Tooth Components.

This launch comes on the heels of the release of RockShoxlong-anticipated underbar lever. Unlike the new hydraulic remote for the RockShox Reverb, this new lever, named the Digit, is cable-operated.

The 9point8 Digit is the result of a cross-border collaboration between the Canadian dropper manufacturer and US-based Wolf Tooth Components — which specializes in producing upgrade components, such as narrow/wide chainrings, wide-range cogs and a premium dropper seatpost lever, the ReMote.

In addition to some aesthetic differences that make it stand out from the ReMote, the Digit uses a leverage ratio specifically tailored to the Fall Line seatpost.

It shares the attributes that make the ReMote a category leader, including the use of a cartridge bearing for the lever pivot, a replaceable breakaway axle pivot to save your knee in a wreck, a cable-friendly clamp design, as well as RockShox Matchmaker and Shimano I-Spec compatibility.

The Digit can be added to the purchase of a 9point8 seatpost for $18. It is also available separately for $70. (UK and Australian pricing have yet to be announced.)
