Put the final touch on your perfect cockpit with the FOX Racing Shox Transfer Dropper Seatpost Lever Assembly. Designed to pair with FOX's Transfer series of dropper post, this lever is conveniently available in two options to best fit your aesthetic and handlebar layout needs. The left side below bar mount sits similarly to a standard shift lever, adding clean symmetry to one-by systems. The left/right on bar mount sits how we most commonly think of dropper post levers, and provides clean integration with any shift system.

  • Pairs with FOX Racing Shox Transfer dropper seatposts
  • Two mounting options seamlessly integrate into your cockpit
  • Light actuation for quick dropper post response

It works, but........

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The good: It works and does what it is supposed to do. Fits nicely underneath the brake like a Front D shifter. The not so great: It doesn't have the most friendly and durable design. When compressing the lever, the actuation bends the cable housing at a ~60 (?) degree angle, the prolonged use of this will begin to fray the cable housing. Ergonomically, its good, but the lever itself isn't too fixed and becomes squeaky, nothing some dry lube can't fix though. Finally, to get real "nitpicky" uses the small 3mm (?) hex to clamp, which isn't a big deal its just a pain to change components with 4 different sized bolts, I like to keep them close to the same or spec on Shimano. Overall, it gets the job done, but I think there are some other brands for levers to use with a Fox Transfer dropper that are better designed, have better actuation, and won't fray the cable than this model. Also for better value plus the same nice under the front brake style. In essence, I think you can get a better lever.

Perfect Shifter, smoothio!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This Fox lever is sweet! Super smooth action, immediate response, easy to engage, and having the lever under the bar is perfect. Takes place of the shifter when you have a 1x11. Super glad I switched from my 5 year old Giant Switch Contact post. I highly recommend this shifter!

Good texture on lever

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Looked like a great lever but I ended up going with the wolf tooth as it would mate to the clamp on my brakes.

Great dropper switch

    I've run a couple other droppers, it seems the dropper switch is an afterthought. This switch has a great positive engagement and relatively short throw to actuate. It's in the right spot if you have a 1x setup. Probably most overlooked, it is VERY easy to setup, thread the cable and clamp with a pinch bolt that's actually possible to access and you're done.

    Fox Transfer Dropper w/Fox 1x lever

      I just got this post and lever, and I LOVE IT! Super responsive, infinite travel, solid seat to seat post connection, quick return when pressing the lever. You can adjust this to have it return slower if you prefer. Good feature. The previous post I was riding was a Giant Contact Switch. It worked fine, but the single bolt system for scoring the seat, is awful. Nothing holding it on both ends, just in the middle; this was also an externally routed post, and I am loving how clean the internal routing of the Transfer looks on my Yeti SB5c.
      The lever is incredible. Fits under the bar exactly where I would have my shifter if I didn't have a 1x11. It's a super natural feel, and easy to press to engage the post. Great purchase!!

      Decent Ergonomics and Actuation

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I purchased the left(under bar) lever and overall the ergonomics and actuation are pretty solid but I'm not amazed by any means. I do like the fact the the cable clamps and the lever and cleanly tucks cable/cable end into slot in lever. FYI the cable bushing required to set up your Transfer post is included with the POST NOT THE LEVER.

      Must have Transfer post bit

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Push the lever and the Transfer post goes up and down. Fits nicely under the bar. It should probably be included with the dropper post but picking a left or right lever is easy enough once you buy the seat post.

      Great Design

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Coming from a Reverb, I love the ergonomic design of this lever. It came with my new Yeti, so I don't have any experience installing it. It has a nice feel and throw, and is perfect for the 1x rider. I don't have any experience with it on the trail yet, but I expect it to perform well.

      Great lever but they gouge you on price

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Ergonomic and levers nicely but honestly...$65? It feels like when you buy the airline ticket but then forget about the baggage fees.

      Super pleased

        I love this new post. Actuation and feel is on par if not better than offerings from RS, and durability has been outstanding so far. Setup is a little difficult. The cable and housing comes with the lever assembly and not with the post.

        Sweet Little Lever

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The 1x lever is super small, compact, and gets the job done. Very easy to push and gives the bike a clean look. If you are purchasing a Transfer post this is the lever you need.

        Great Quality

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Fox has done it again! They make amazing suspension and I've been waiting for this post to come out for a while now. This lever is small, but functional. Love the feel of it. Way over priced $$$.

        Transfer 1x Lever

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I was hesitant to try a cable actuated dropper post due to a harsh lever feel. For this reason, I always preferred the Rockshox Reverb as I felt it had the best lever feel. That being said, I've been blown away by the Fox Transfer post so far.

        At first I was slightly disappointed that I could not rotate the lever closer to the bars, but after installing, I realized Fox definitely did their homework and got it dialed (at least for me). The aesthetics of the lever is very clean and minimalist. The cable tucks in neatly behind the paddle. The lever length offers good leverage to not only offers a smooth, consistent lever feel when engaging the dropper, but also the ability to feather how quickly the dropper responds since the speed is not adjustable on the Transfer. Lastly a barrel adjuster is present on the lever assembly to help remove any cable slack and get the perfect lever feel.

        Great modulation, low profile

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Great lever design by Fox, miles better than the DOSS unit. Low profile, great actuation, and easy to route and install.
        Cable and housing are included!
