I installed this dropper on my bike a couple of months ago, and I've been overall quite pleased with it! Set-up was a breeze (but you will want cable cutters!), and I haven't had any problems out on trail.
So far this dropper has been reliable and trouble free. The return speed of the Turbine seems to be a bit faster than the older Reverbs, but slower than the Specialized Command Post. My only complaint is the older style lever that it comes with. I'll be upgrading to a shifter style lever ASAP.
I love my Turbine dropper. I've had a handful of dropper posts across several brands and this is by far the most reliable and bomb proof I've used. It looks great and performs like a dropper should - never sticking on the way back up. Currently running the 100mm
Dropper posts are a game changer for your ride. This one was recommended to me by our bike team backcountry and it hasn't let me down. If you are investing in a bike that may not have a dropper pair included, this is the one you want! Lever included!
I have used a lot of droppers over the past few years, and this is probably my favorite. Thomson might feel better, but I broke a lot of cables on it and its pricey. The reverb is a piece of junk. If you have one, throw it away now! The Turbine might be a little finicky to setup, but take your time, read the instructions, or have a mechanic do it. I love mine. Works great, looks great
This dropper post came with a high end Yeti ASRC bike that I bought from Competitive Cyclist. With less than 3 months and under 100 miles of riding, no crashes, the cable is torn with only 3 thread remains. Race face should consider putting more quality cable on their expensive dropper seat post. Unhappy customer. I bought a high end bike with high end components and expect to work longer than 3 months. And yes, I'm the original owner and bought it brand new.
This seat post was supplied with a new SB6c Yeti bike. It is my first dropper, and it works! Very well I might add. I will probably upgrade the control lever at some point, even though the stock one works well.
