Description

Keep it simple.

Since SRAM is its sister company, it's no surprise that RockShox is helping the one-by revolution along by providing a dropper post that takes the place of your front shifter. After all, with a 50t bailout gear out back, the only left-handed adjustment you need to make between climbing and descending is getting your saddle out of the way before you drop in.

  • Replace useless front shifters with something more practical
  • Light touch empowers racers and recreationalists alike
  • Bleeding Edge tech simplifies maintenance

Classic Bike Industry F*** Up We Pay For

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

At this point the lever is basically a must have. Though RockShox should've designed something like this much earlier than they did. And if you want to get it installed anytime soon after buying it you'll HAVE TO PURCHASE A REVERB BLEED KIT. This almost screwed me until I realized my dad, inexplicably, had 3 of them just laying around. Most shops don't have them (neither does the one I work at) and the droppers use an entirely different fluid that's not even glycol-ether based (DOT) so you need the proprietary RockShox Reverb fluid and syringes.

That being said the lever is awesome and works exactly how you'd want it to. It's a ridiculous improvement over the plunger. The Install of the lever is easy but it takes awhile to get the bike and post positioned nicely (you're gonna want a strap or two to hold the seatpost). Watching the video by RockShox takes you through the process and make sure you have all the stuff.

All in all yes the lever is great and I'd give that a 5 star but I'm irritated with the company itself as the proper bleed kit isn't even included and it should've been obvious to go with a design like this in the first place.

Fits with any kind of brake?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Hi. I want to buy the Rock Shock Reverb with the new remote 1x. Anyone know if this remote fits with any kind of front brake? Please any could help me soon? Thanks

It fits great next to my Zee lever so I'd assume it would fit nicely next to most shimano levers. Also if it's not entirely clear in the description above it does come with an adapter to mount directly to the bar

What a bummer, senores y senoritas

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I had HIIIiiiGH hopes for this lever. It was the first of a few mods I made to my new (to me) 2016 Trek Remedy (the conversion to 1x being the first mod, of course). After riding bikes of all sorts with the Reverb and that lame-o plunger mounted on the top of the bar, sometimes a yard away from my plunger pusher finger, I was super eager to try out something resembling the industry standard- a below the bar thumb-shifter style paddle.

What a bummer, Joe Smith.

I tried to separate times to get the lever set up on my own. I followed the pretty decent youtoobs video that Rockshox put together for the install, and no dice! Even after the shop assisted install, the performance leaves me missing my older KS Lev post and paddle style lever.

To top it off, the Rockshox got another $95 outta my pocket? No bueno, Rockshox. No bueno.

Skip it hermanos y hermanas.

Still have the lever and want to sell it? :)

much improved

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

anybody else ever get their shorts caught on the old push dropper lever? Not a problem any more.

Does the job, better than the push

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

Just like the rest of the reviews on here, this upgrade is pretty much a mandatory swap from the push button set up. For the 2 rides that I did with this lever, worked great. I probably would of kept this lever if I didn't have to get a new dropper (went from 150mm Rockshox to 125mm Fox Transer).

A couple reasons that initiated my move to a Fox Transfer was the need to buy all this "Bleed Edge" crap to do simple maintenance/installation on a drop post. Yeah, the 1x comes with the tool, but for someone that's not familiar with Rockshox hydraulically operated droppers, there's more stuff you need to buy like the fluid and syringes. Second reason, maintenance. Its hydraulic fluid. You have to bleed and flush it occasionally and it can get quite messy and expensive.

Like I said, its a great upgrade and I would of kept using it if I didn't need a shorter travel dropper post.

Disappointed...

    I'm glad to see Roc Shox have corrected the problem of the poor design on their dropper lever, unfortunately it doesn't help those of us who purchased the orignal Stealth and supported their company. I would have hoped they would have backed their product and replaced or at least discounted the new lever instead of expecting us to purchase it for another $95. This will certainly influence my decision to buy any more Roc Shox products.

    Immediate Improvement

    The title says it all. This is the remote the post should have always come with.

    Could have been 5 stars, except...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Everything is ok, except the installation instructions of RS are inconsistent. IMO, the correct way of installing this is in https://sram-cdn-pull-zone-gsdesign.netdna-ssl.com/cdn/farfuture/NxVNL2JYOXtHOb02PIQjeFHODKX484F5qqaoMD2FC6M/mtime:1491315331/sites/default/files/techdocs/gen.0000000005101_2017_reverb_stealth_b1_service_manual_rev_c_english.pdf, pp39-40. The kit should come with the hose barb uninstalled from the remote and that the user should thread it using a T6 compared to the youtube video where the user threads the entire remote with the barb installed. The consequence of threading it with the barb installed is that you either won't seat it fully or over torque it - either which will leaving you with a leaking connection.

    I'm using mine with m8000 brakes and problemsolvers adapter and works great.

    Could have been 5 stars, except...

    Hi there. Could you please tell me if the new shifter fits with shimano brakes? Do you need a special piece?

    Best upgrade if you have a Reverb

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If you already have a Reverb, and are running 1x, this the best upgrade you could make. Not only does pressing the lever feel a lot smoother than the push button, but it has better positioning that feels more natural. Plus the fact that it was easy to install was an added bonus.

    Almost Perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Compared to the old push-button reverb lever, this thing is amazing. But I still feel it's only an 8/10 on the execution scale.

    I wish that you could index the rotation of the lever to different positions (similar to the downshift lever on SRAM trigger shifters). I also wish you could push the lever "through" more. I've found the post compression and return aren't as smooth as with the push-button, and I feel that's due to the lever not "actuating" enough. I thoroughly bled upon installation, but I think one more bleed (now that I've ridden a bit) will fix it.

    Best part is that I can finally position my front brake *and* dropper levers where I want them, without having to compromise one of them.

    Get this. It's way better than the stock button.

    Reach out to me and I'd love to provide 1-on-1 service.

    Nice upgrade

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Significant improvement in ergonomics. Easy to install/adjust/bleed. A bit pricey, but I guess at this point we all have already figured out that mtb is not particularly inexpensive sport . I wouldn't say it is a must have, but if you hate your old style remote, 1x remote is something worth checking out.

    Nice upgrade

    Hi Max. How does it work the new remote with shimano brakes? Many thanks in advance.

    How would I pair this with a Shimano XT 785 brake lever?

    It will come with a bar clamp, same as the one used with a Sram trigger shifter when not mounted with a matchmaker.

    Check my review. You can use a problemsovlers adapter suited for m785 lever. In my case I used the one for m8000.

    Game Changer

      I almost had to change dropper brands because the plunger(old style) was difficult to push and was in a bit of a funky spot. This 1X remote installed easily and didn't require a full bleed. It looks super clean when mounted with the supplied matchmaker. The action is ultra smooth and I have found I use the dropper even more often than before, if that's possible. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.

      Does this include the syringe and kit required to bleed after install or is it just the lever?

      includes the syringe tip only. you'll need the actual syringe and oil.

      The 1x kit only includes the bleeding edge adapter. You just have to place it one of the syringes that came with the bleeding kit from your reverb.
