The titanium standard.
Nothing adds to a great XC ride like having to stop every 200 yards and adjust your seatpost, which is why adding the KS LEV Dropper Seatpost to your whip is probably not that great of an idea. If, however, you prefer to milk the flowy goodness of a long ride replete with climbs, descents, and techy sections, the LEV is worth checking out.
KS is already well known as the makers of the best droppers on the market, and the LEV Ti embodies what KS does so well. The titanium clamp bolts, carbon lower clamp, and carbon remote lever help you ditch a few grams, and the PowerCordz cable is 75% lighter than a classic stainless steel line while serving up superior durability. Aluminum comprises the rest of the LEV, which keeps things bombproof while not making them unnecessarily burly.
Like any good dropper, the LEV makes its money with adjustability, but it doesn't just stop with height. You can set up the cable junction in any direction, which means it can work smoothly with any cable-routing setup, eliminating twisting, bunching, and general messiness. It also connects on the lower, stationary half of the post, so you can cut your cable to precisely the right length instead of having to leave extra to accommodate the movement of the post. That's what we call a dropper.
