OneUp Components has just announced the launch of its brand new Dropper Post, claiming class-leading specs as the shortest (for a given drop) available dropper on the market along with an adjustable drop length.
The OneUp Components Dropper Post is available with either 150 or 170mm travel and internal cable routing only. OneUp claims the compact dimensions of the Dropper Post mean most riders will be able to spec more travel than they currently have if they decide to upgrade.

The 170mm dropper is 450mm long with a 207mm stack height.
Both lengths are available in a 30.9 or 31.6mm diameter with a two bolt saddle clamp.

An adjustable travel dropper post
The Dropper Post offers up to 50mm of seamless travel adjustment for both models. The adjustment is tool-less and doesn’t require fiddling with any sensitive pressurised components, or even removing your saddle.
Instead you simply cut down the included shim to the length that corresponds to the reduction in travel desired. Unscrew the seatpost collar (by hand) and insert the shim into the corresponding grooved section inside the lower part of the dropper post. Reassemble and you’re done.

This is one of the most elegant solutions we have seen and is so simple that it can be done with the dropper installed on your bike. This kind of travel adjustment will allow you to get the longest possible drop on your bike.
Carbon composite cable remote
We rather like the design of the beefy shifter-style carbon remote, which looks like it can take some abuse. OneUp claims the ergonomics of the lever have been designed to necessitate less thumb movement when using it.

The remote is available with an I-Spec-II, Matchmaker or standard bar clamp. The cable clamp for the system is located on the lever meaning installation and shortening cable lengths should be that bit easier.
