KS is a leading brand of height adjustable seatposts and performance suspension. Five years ago KindShock dropped a bomb when they rolled up to bike shows worldwide with the LEV—a dropper post with a then-mind-blowing 125 millimeters of adjustment and a unique cable anchoring system that let you drop the post without simultaneously creating a big loop of cable housing that would buzz the hell out of your rear tire.
If you’re riding a modern bike, you can now get all three LEV models (in 30.9 and 31.6-millimeter diameters) with as much as 175 millimeters of drop. KindShock will now offer three LEV variants (LEV, LEV Integra and LEV CI) in 27.2 diameters so if you’re running an older bike, you’re in luck. The travel range isn’t as wide as what’s available in their 30.9 and 31.6-millimeter versions, but you can now get a 27.2 LEV, LEV Integra or LEV CI with up to 120-millimeters of drop.
