Magura USA Vyron eLect Dropper Seatpost $499.00
The future is here.
If you've spent an hour or two trying to fish internal cable routing through a frame, you'll understand why we're head over heels with the Magura Vyron eLect Dropper Seatpost. With 150-millimeters of infinitely adjustable travel, the Vyron eLect wirelessly communicates from remote to dropper post without the need for messy external cables, or difficult internals. This means no fussy cable tensions, kinked lines, and much less of a headache should you decide you want to swap your dropper post from your hard tail to you enduro rig.
The newest iteration of the Vyron eLect is largely the same as its previous generation, but a few key changes set it apart. First, it adjusts to any length you want rather than adhering to a preset menu, so seatpost length is dictated by feel, not arbitrary measurements. Second, its reaction time is shaved to 0.3 seconds, so it responds as quickly as a high-end freehub, and the new valve technology increases return speed. Finally, Magura focused on the seals of the USB port for a tighter, more waterproof hold when you're riding in wintry and rainy conditions.
The life blood of the Vyron eLect is Magura's Royal Blood hydraulic fluid, which makes lowering and raising the saddle smooth and effortless. When fully charged, the power offers you an estimated 400-actuations, which lasts the average rider 2-months of carefree, cable-free riding on one charge. It recharges fully in 3 hours using a USB port, but in the off chance that you forgot to re-up your battery supply, the Vyron eLect offers 20 emergency actuations that can be engaged with a button on the seatpost, so you don't have to be stuck bottomed out for a long climb home.
Using proven ANT+ technology, the Vyron eLect is compatible with the same remote that Magura uses with its wireless suspension forks and shocks. If you're already riding with a wireless Magura fork and shock, you can use one remote to control all three components or choose to separate them and use multiple remotes. With the remote able to be mounted on either side of the bars, you have plenty of options for customization to take advantage of a one-by drivetrain's left shifter vacancy or fit it in a crowded cockpit.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a very light post, if you consider the remote and cables. Adjusting the fixed height is just like any standard post, but be warned in inserts deeper than other droppers. Actuaction has a built in slight delay, but it is consistent and quick to adapt to. In fact, it helps with you timing because you can actuate, then regain your grip before squatting it down. I have a KS Lev and a PNW for comparison, and any future dropper purchase will definitely be a Vyron.
