Get low.

Stopping on the trail to adjust your seatpost shouldn't be part of your ride — just think of the time you lose pulling over before a long, slow climb to raise your saddle only to breathlessly lower it again at the top before enjoying the descent you've earned. If you're ready to upgrade, we'd recommend the KS LEV-272 Dropper Seatpost.

In addition to the obvious vertical adjustments, the LEV-272 also allows for rotational tweaks to ensure you get the right setup. It includes a KG carbon handlebar remote for easy adjustment and attaches securely using a two-bolt clamp.

  • The iconic LEV dropper made for 27.2mm diameter seatposts
  • Great choice for cross country or gravel bikes
  • External cable routing offers zero cable movement
  • Housing stop rotates 360-degrees for custom cable routing
  • Air sprung internal cartridge offers infinite adjustment
  • 2-bolt clamp for easy micro-adjustments to saddle position
  • Patented one-way roller bearing clutch for reliability
  • Includes KGSL carbon remote and superlight Recourse cable

    This post isn't worth the money

    I installed the KS LEV 27.2 post, and from the first ride until now it has been slow at rebounding, and never fully extends unless I pull it up by hand. The post now has a noticeable side to side play as well. I recently purchased a PNW Rainier 27.2 post and it is way better.

    great upgrade

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

    I do not yet know how reliable this post is in the long run, but on my first few rides it performed flawlessly. I had none of the problems that I hear people talk about coming straight out of the box. Setup was straight forward and easy. the return speed is a little bit slower than on some other models, but it does not affect me at all. If you are looking for a good quality 27.2 MM dropper post, than this is a good option.


    Dropper post like this for a 27.2mm Trail/XC mtn bike. Would this work without internal routing? Is there even an option for a bike without internal routing at all? How about at 27.2mm. would love to know. thanks!

    Hi John, This post is specific for external routed frames. Each post is manufactured to work with either internal or external routing. KS does make a 27.2 internal that they designate with "integra". Give us a call at 888-276-7130 if you have further questions!

    It's a dropper, just not adjustable...

    I've used it several times

    If you have a 27.2 post, there are only a few internally routed options. This one is fine -- assuming you're ok with the pressure set at KS's factory. The rebound on mine is really slow. When I looked for how to adjust it -- no dice on this model. No way to add or remove pressure. I'll live, it's just not ideal. Know this BEFORE you buy, not after like me.

    I too discovered (slow rebound, and never full extends without help) this after installing the post. I have a PNW Rainier 27.2 on another bike and it is way better than the KS LEV 27.2 post.

    awesome post

    I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I gave this as a gift, but my buddy loves the post. It was easy to install and works super smooth in any condition. A+++
