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

The reviews say it all

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave this as a gift and this is what they had to say:

"The fox transfer is a complete package when is comes to dropper post. With the ability of infinite positions and the reliability of a cable actuated system the transfer will out last many of its competitors before needing a bleed or a rebuild. At well over 6 feet the transfer provides the length I need (175mm) to get my seat in the correct position for long climbs while still having enough drop to get back behind my seat for technical descents. To anyone who is planning on being in the saddle for over 5 to 6 hours I would absolutely recommend upgrading the lever to the Wolf tooth sealed bearing lever as it provides more durability and easier engagement than the stock transfer lever."

This is the dropper others are judged by

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've ridden a lot of droppers and this is the one I always come back to. Silky smooth, reliable, and brain dead simple to setup. Once you set it up, you completely forget about it... which is the best complement I can give a component. If you are constantly aware of a component, it's because you have to think about it because it doesn't function properly or wasn't designed well, which is a distraction on the trail and gets you in trouble. I keep trying other droppers and I'm always disappointed.

The only con I can see is the slower return speed than some other droppers, but unless you require supersonic return speeds, this isn't an issue. Some will say the servicing is a problem, but honestly, if I'm taking the bike in to have the suspension serviced, it's easy to just have them add this to the list.

Tip: pair this thing with the Wolftooth lever... that thing is simply amazing too!

30 Minutes Soup to Nuts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The fox transfer is great. It is smooth and fluid. The cable actuation makes it easy to install. From opening the box, a quick read through the instructions to the first pedal around the block was only about 30 minutes. Note that the remote is sold separately so make sure you pick one up as you are buying.

Best Dropper

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There are increasingly more options in the world of dropper seatposts. But Fox does it the best. Never any issues with reliablity, no hydraulic hoses to worry, never gets sloppy or squishy.
As others have noted, get the Wolf Tooth Remote and you'll be stoked.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Fox did an amazing job entering the dropper post market with this gem. It's proven through my abuse and the general MTB community to be one of the most reliable, durable droppers on the market. Fox used their suspension pedigree to drop the best seals of any dropper keeping the internals clean and performing as smooth a year down the road as the day it's installed. I gave this a 4 star rating only because there is no cable and housing with this post OR lever so once you get all those things, it becomes a bit pricey. Cable and housing does not come with a Wolftooth lever either so if you go that way, don't forget your cable and housing! It does come with the Fox actuator however but that lever is inferior to the Wolftooth so I'm not sure why someone would choose that over the Wolftooth when forced to buy the lever separately.

best dropper!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

no issues so far, pair it with a wolfs tooth and bam!!!!!!!

Love it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought this as a gift for my brother, he said Its very solid, fast return speed, very little play and really good action from the lever.

The best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Read what everyone else has said. I agree plus its awesome, smooth, zero maintenance so far. 2 notes: do not forget you need a separate lever and you can control speed of dropper slow to fast with lever!

Smooth Dropping

    I've tried a few different droppers, and so far I like this one paired with a 1x wolftooth remote the best. These post is extremely smooth up and down. I've had both this version and the factory and both have worked flawlessly. Remotes are sold separately, I never tried the fox version but have really liked the wolftooth option.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great dropper, easy install, and very rapid actuation. Like many droppers, the Transfer has maybe 1-3mm of side to side movement but it is unnoticeable when riding and pedalling hard. Not certain but it seems to move faster than a reverb. 4 stars because the dropper does not come with a lever or a cable. I bought the Wolf Tooth Re-mote which has been working great so far. Finally just wanted to touch on the actualy mechanism of the dropper; when the cable pulls down then it pushes on a very thin piece of metal about 1-2mm thick that looks quite flimsy considering all the pressure that it goes through. So far it seems fine, but if it breaks I'll post a follow up review.

    Switched from RockShox Reverb

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I switched to this from a failing rockshox reverb and will never look back. No more slow rising dropper post in the cold for me. The ease of setup and hassle free fox transfer is where it's at.

    Fox Dropper Posts are Fantastic!

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

    What a great idea to upgrade your seat post! I love this fox dropper post. Luckily we needed the switch too so it came with everything we needed. I got it for my son who is a mountain bike racer in high school and he is so stoked to have the adjustability whenever he wants to adjust. The post works great and I would recommend this to everyone.

    Pretty solid very minor issues

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Works great and operates as intended after 800 miles of weekly use over the course of 7 months so far. Initially would make a clicking sound when pressing the lever but that went away after about 3 months or so. Also initially had some very small amount of oil drip on the cable under the post but that has gone away. So some minor break-in issues. 7 months into it, the operation feels like it may have slowed down some, but overall still 90% of what it was new. I could see myself servicing it every 2 years or so with Fox. I would recommend this product.

    Easy to Use Dropper Post

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Of the mechanical dropper post options, this one seems to be the easiest to install. The actuation seems to be a bit slower than the reverb and turbine posts but it seems to be the most consistent.

    Great dropper, cable not included...

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

    Just ordered this dropper post and ended up buying a Wolf Tooth remote to go with it. Well, i was stoked to open the box and get it installed until i realized there was no cable included. I asked Backcountry and they said Fox ships the cable with the remotes they sell, not with the dropper post. I mentioned they may want to update the description in case others have the same experience, and they just said "Sorry, have a good day." Obviously not a big deal to go get a shifter cable to use, it just would have been nice to know this prior to ordering. So, I just wanted to mention it in case it helps someone down the line...

    Installed the dropper and it's as easy as everyone else says it is. Dropper works great with the Wolf Tooth remote. The only strange thing (and others have mentioned this) is my seat moves sideways a bit if you just twist it with light pressure while standing next to the bike. Just seems a little strange it has that kind of play and doesn't feel 100% solid. The seatpost is not moving, it is just the connection to the seat. Hopefully it'll just stay that way and not break. If so, not a big deal.

    the actual dropping works great, though. super smooth. nice you can put a little pressure on the lever to raise it slowly or just push it all the way and it will pop right up.

    Is it a two bolt system holding the saddle? If not, have there been issues with the saddle shifting angles? Thanks!

    Hey Tony,

    It is a two bolt system - I've attached a photo from Fox's site showing it (albeit it is the Kashima coated version, but the actual build is no different). Let me know if you have any other questions on it or would like help sizing for your seat post diameter and length of travel!

    Fox Transfer Post

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love this post! Awesome! Super smooth action, the internal routing is so clean, no issues installing it. Super clean looking, and flawless engagement. Highly recommended! The black is killer, and cheaper! Worthy. This replaced my 5 year old Giant Switch Contact post. Night and day difference! Wow!

    #1 upgrade to any bike

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I used to not think a dropper was hugely necessary, but after getting into riding longer rides with varied climbing/downhill, I took a friend's advice to grab one. This was actually my third dropper I tried and this was by far the best by a long shot.
    -the speed doesn't sound like a big deal but after trying 2 others that were super slow, it makes sense. You push the button, and it's there. No waiting. You spend less time thinking about your equipment working and more time having fun. That is where the price tag is coming from for this's really quick.
    -this specific model has a feature that makese installing way easier than the others. The part where you cut the cable is at the bar controller, not at the post itself, so getting the perfect cable length dialed is a piece of cake. After installing 2 others, I can't recommend another dropper than this.
    -20% sale on backcountry makes this a steal!

    Arrived not workingArrived not extended

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Arrived Not fully extended, and never wanted too! The box was a little beat and it looked like The post had been removed from box and put back. The last inch of travel needed a little help. I used it a few times because I was hoping with a little use it might

    What was the outcome here? I have one doing the same thing, right out of the box. called Fox and they said to ride it for 15 hours before doing anything. not sure that's worth it. did Backcountry take yours back?

    My post is doing the same thing. I called the customer service at Fox to see what they recommended.

    This is what I was told:

    1- the cable tension could be too tight
    2- the seat post clamp could be too tight
    3- fill out their online RA form if 1 and 2 don't fix it

    Not really thrilled that Fox didn't seamed more concerned that this was happening on a brand new product.
