Smooth running, infinitely height-adjustable and as desirable as a seat-post could possibly be, the Rockshox Reverb is the pinnacle of enduro chic and lusted after by nearly all riders.

Rockshox have solved the problem of the static cable with their Stealth Reverb, although the necessity of internal hose routing for it is not the most user friendly. Any minor details can be forgiven though as the hydraulic system makes the process of raising the seat unbelievably buttery smooth, an action that can even be speed controlled with the functional dial that lies behind the bar-mounted release lever/button. We have seen several of the levers break in crashes which is really the only gripe, but if you mount it under your bar it’s far better protected.

The seemingly high price tag doesn’t seem unjustified; a dropper post like this can, and will, revolutionise your bike.
