Description

Loam Lever

One of the best upgrades to mountain bikes in the last decade is the evolution and proliferation of dropper seatposts. Despite advancements in the performance and reliability of dropper posts, a lot of the actuation levers feel like an afterthought, especially ones sporting cheap materials or poor ergonomics. After testing a bunch of levers, PNW Components decided they could do better and created the Loam Lever—a premium dropper post remote that combines satisfying ergonomics with precision and durability. PNW obsessed over the design as they wanted a lever that felt crisp, was easy to push, and had a natural feel through its stroke. With the Loam Lever they've hit these marks and made something that's truly fun to press, and quite possibly the smoothest lever action we've ever felt on a dropper.

The Loam Lever has four key characteristics that set it apart from others on the market: adjustability, weather proofing, no slip grip, and precise construction. Adjustability is straightforward. It includes a two position side to side as well as a pivoting reach adjustment that let you position the lever right where you want it. As far as weather resistance goes, the Loam Lever was built to withstand the rigors of a wet Pacific North West winter and the exaggerated wear it causes to your components. Water and grime persistently get into the nuts, bolts, and bearings of your bike and cause degradation. Levers that use plastic or injected carbon degrade quickly in these conditions, and so do low grade bearings and bushings. To combat this, PNW uses an oversized high quality double-sealed bearing as well as all stainless hardware to keep the lever from binding up and failing even after extended wet weather riding.

Perhaps the defining feature of this lever is the grippy injection-molded thumb pad. We're surprised nobody else does this, because it makes a lot of sense. It feels good against your thumb and provides no slip grip even in the sloppiest conditions. And should you wear it out, it's replaceable. The rest of the lever is custom CNC-machined aluminum that's constructed with precision in order to reduce weight while remaining totally durable. The Loam Lever is available with three different colors of thumb pad, fastens to your handlebars via a standard 22.2mm hinge clamp, is compatible with any cable-actuated dropper post, and includes a Jagwire derailleur cable inside the 100% recyclable packaging so you can easily get started.

SOLID

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this lever. The action on it is smooth, and the grippy thumb pad makes it feel extra nice. The teal color looks super good with the yeti color so it adds a nice little touch to the bike. I replaced my fox lever with this and it is by far superior, and looks way better too. Definitely will be getting the same lever for my future bikes!

Upgrade!

A simple, yet pivotal upgrade for most cable actuated dropper posts. Currently using this with my SDG Tellis. Setup was quick and I love the lever feel! The bit of rubber gives great grip on the lever when the trails get rough. Mounted great to the SRAM lever and has 2 positions to dial in the fit. This will work with cable-actuated posts that have the cable head at the post, Fox, Raceface, SDG, Oneup. Basically anything except KS posts.

Comes with a derailleur cable, but no housing or ferrules.

Upgrade!

Love this lever. Smooth action and a comfy colored thumb pad to boot!
