The ENVE G Series Dropper Seatpost is available in a single 27.2mm-diameter option, weighs a claimed 395g and costs £345 / $325. At the time of writing, European and Australian pricing are not available.

ENVE made its name by rolling out some of the best road bike wheels, before expanding into gravel wheels.

The release of the G Series Dropper Seatpost indicates the technology’s increasing adoption beyond mountain biking, where it was developed.

Dropper posts are increasingly common on gravel bikes and have even popped up on WorldTour road bikes.

ENVE G Series Dropper Seatpost spec and details

The minimum and maximum insertion figures are 75mm and 210mm respectively.

To meet a rider’s preferences and save up to 50g, the post’s 350mm overall length can be trimmed by as much as 130mm, according to ENVE.

The brand also claims the G Series Dropper Seatpost has a minimum stack height of 145mm.

A low stack height keeps the post out of the way when it is down, allowing greater freedom of movement.

ENVE adds this is the lowest stack height for a dropper post on the market.

The cable-actuated Dropper Seatpost only works with internally routed frames.

Most remote levers, including left shifters that convert to dropper post levers, and all cable-actuated levers are compatible, according to ENVE.

The brand claims the G Series Dropper Seatpost’s inverted design permits a more reliable cartridge mechanism in the post’s 27.2mm diameter. A similar design is used on DT Swiss’ 232 One dropper post.

Although the G Series Dropper Seatpost is designed primarily for drop-bar riding, ENVE says it can also be used on cross-country mountain bikes.

Shims supplied with the post are claimed to make it compatible with 30.9mm and 31.6mm seatpost clamps.

The G Series Dropper Seatpost’s two-bolt saddle clamp fits all rail types and is easily adjustable, according to ENVE.

The lever can be pulled from multiple hand positions.

ENVE has simultaneously released the G Series Dropper Remote Lever.

The brand says you can pull the lever with your finger from the hoods or push the thumb extension from the drops.

The G Series Dropper Remote Lever is compatible with most cable-actuated dropper posts.
