Drop it like it's hot.

When you're in the zone, ripping berms, shredding rock gardens, and dropping in on sick jumps, the last thing you want to do is interrupt the fun with a trailside seatpost adjustment at every change of terrain. Keep the fun rolling with clean frame lines with the FOX Racing Shox Transfer Performance Series Dropper Seatpost - Internal Routing. Featuring a black anodized upper post and hydraulic internals, this dropper stealthily supports your saddle to seamlessly manage transitions from screaming descents to buttery-smooth singletrack and everything in between.

The Transfer's internal cable routing keeps everything tucked neatly away in the frame for clean aesthetics, while a Spool Valve design utilizes beefy hydraulics for easy modulation so the post always ends up exactly where you need it. As an added bonus, a tool-free cable disconnect feature makes for easy installation and maintenance.

FOX Racing Shox offers two separately sold lever options for its Transfer dropper posts. 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.

  • Transition seamlessly through varied terrain
  • Hydraulic internals for smooth, light actuation
  • Stealthy black anodized upper post
  • Internal routing for clean, cable-free frame lines

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've always been a Fox fan so when it came time to build up my next bike I decided to give their dropper a try. So far it has worked pretty well. It has one major down fall though. The back of it says "transfer" so when it is in my bike it just says "trans". So if it didn't have a graphic it would be 10/10.

Good piece of equipment with 1 big flaw

    After two months of use I have to say that the post works as I expected. This is my first dropper so nothing to compare to goes up, it goes down. There isn't any sag and the control mechanism works fine. The on issue is the thumb lever. The way the cable connects to the unit is simply ridiculous. It is hard to describe but basically you have to thread a cable into a ridiculously small hole, upside down and use a very, very small allen wrench to secure it...without being able to see where the screw is. And once you have the unit installed the barrel connector actually is in the way of the whole in case you had to adjust it. It is this bad...if i were to buy another dropper for one of my other bikes I would not buy this dropper just because of this poor design at the lever.

    Best uppy downer post out there!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've been a RS fan for a long time, and have been running the reverb for a while. I was hesitant to try this out, but I have been seriously impressed! I paired this with the wolf tooth remote, and have been loving how this works! Will give update after a few months.

    Started to compress within a month

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Dropper posts in general are a little bit of "pick your poison". I opted to try the Fox Transfer out after having ridden the Reverb and Thompson's dropper. It was a great post for the first month but then it started to compress a half an inch or so when fully extended which made it super annoying while riding. You can't try to address it with more air pressure or anything either because Fox uses a nitrogen charge at ~400 psi. Immediate send in for a re-charge. I was less than happy to deal with that after 1 month so the Fox gets a "meh" in my book. Best post I've had is still the Thompson dropper - price is higher but it is a quality piece of equipment.


      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.

      what type of cable head and housing size does this post accept. which end has the cable head the post or the lever?

      Hey Soren, it will be a shift cable used and the cable head will be at the post. See the photo I've attached too! Let me know if you have any other questions or would like help placing an order - my direct line is 801.204.4547 or email is Cheers, Connor

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

      I only have a few rides on it, but so far it has been working great. Installation was straight forward and easy, when combined with the FOX 1x lever. I have used several different droppers and this transfer is my favorite so far. As long as reliability doesn't become an issue, A+.

      Unanswered Question

      I have had the transfer external cable for about a month and everything is fine except during particularly hard rides it sinks about an inch or so down I've adjusted the cable and can't figure out anything else to do how about it

      Works Great

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I only have a few rides on this post but am very impressed. The lever is super easy to push and the post is very smooth cycling up and down. The internal routing and infinite adjustment are a nice feature as well. Looking forward to many more miles with this dropper post.

      Caution- FRAGIL, but amazing performance

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Now that I have it installed, I love this dropper. So why the 2 star review, not 5? I literally broke 2 posts before I got a 3rd working. The issue is with the metal casting (magnesium?) on the bottom of the post that holds the cable is the thickness of a nice business card and extremely fragile. Seriously, if you drop this post, twist the post in your frame, or just look at it wrong you will break off that casting and your dropper becomes an expensive paperweight. The first post came slightly bent (damage from shipping), it broke when I tried to bend it back to straight. It was amazing how little force it took to break it. The second one, I had in the bike and it was SOOOO close to being low enough... but it was just a few mm too high. I gave it a little twist and push to get it lower, not putting much force on it at all... TWANG! It broke the casting off the bottom AGAIN. WTF!?! It broke because the cable housing was binding against the internal hose routing tube in my bike... it broke with just the twisting force of one hand on the saddle with a bit of down pressure. So fragile. When I took the post out, one side of the broken casting was still pretty tall. Just to see how strong it was, I bent it over and I was able to break it off with my thumb! Fox needs to make that thing way stronger. I get that it is hidden inside the seat tube and only needs to be strong in one direction (cable pull)... but it is just way too fragile. Mountain bike parts should be reasonably durable in all aspects.

      3rd time was a charm. I got the 100 mm version so it could go low enough for me and I was VERY careful installing it. The install is actually super simple (if you don't break it!). It is now working flawlessly. I am very happy with the performance. I have only a few rides on it, but it is safe to say that I love this dropper. I am using it with the left thumb, that is in the place of the left shifter on a 1x setup. The location is so natural, it really is convenient to use. The lever action feels great, the dropper action feels great.

      I like it more than the Rockshox Reverb Stealth that it replaced. The feel of the lever is better, the action of the dropper is comparable, the location of the lever is WAY better (thumb falls right on it like your old front shifter, where the Reverb you need to reach up a bit), and NO BLEEDING. The quick disconnect is nice too.

      Bottom line, get the post, but be extremely careful with the bottom bits. Seriously, if you drop this post on it's end it WILL break. How many mountain bike parts are that fragile?

      Big thanks to Competitive Cyclist for no questions asked replacing the broken ones. They made the process super easy and even shipped me new replacement posts while I was waiting to send the old one back. That service made me a loyal customer!

      Attached photo is of the broken casting at the bottom.

      Caution- FRAGIL, but amazing performance

      Was getting ready to buy one until I saw this post. Hey Competitive Clclist team! What is the story in this issue? Have you reached out to Fox to address the problem?

      Simple, well built

        Install was a breeze. Compared to the KS system, this is far superior. Installing the housing, cable, took all of 5 minutes and can be done by a monkey with a beer. Remember that the lever and housing is a seperate purchase.

        As for the post? It feels very well built and performs silky smooth. It feels like a freshly rebuilt reverb...but without the need of the rebuild.

        Fox knocked this one out of the park. Well done!

        Thanks for the review and reminder that the lever does come separately!

        Great play by Fox Shox!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        As a new dropper post for the aging DOSS, the Transfer is a great new option!
        Easy to install, great modulation (MUCH better than the DOSS system's unwieldly lever) and overall great quality you'd expect from Fox Shox. Make sure to purchase the lever separately, as it is different for either 1x or 2x/3x drivetrain. The cable and housing are included with the lever.

        Bryan! Thank you so much for your review! Glad you're stoked!

        I am replacing my dropper and I have the KS Southpaw remote already installed. It says this post is cable actuated. Is there any reason my current remote will not work with the transfer dropper? Thanks.

        No. It'll not work. The KS levers have the cable end at the lever/ set screw at the post. This one is the other way around.

        The gravity dropper lever might work. I haven't tired it, but at least it uses the same configuration.

        Does it come with any lever at all?

        Ramon, you will need to buy the lever separately, item FRS005J
