Want to make that dropper post you’re running even better? If it happens to be a RockShox Reverb, you might want to check out the newest product from Novyparts. Likely a relative unknown here in the U.S., Novyparts is a one man operation out of France that normally focuses on suspension tuning. Using his experience of hydraulic components and manufacturing from suspension work, Maxime Bouchez sent over some photos of his latest project – an afermarket remote for a RockShox Reverb seat post.
Geared towards bikes that aren’t running a front shifter, the Novyparts lever should result in an uplifting user experience…
Compared to the plunger style remote that RockShox includes with the Reverb, the Novyparts remote is substantially different. Using a horizontal lever that is positioned under the bar with the Matchmaker clamp, the positioning should make it easier to access especially when bouncing down the trail. According to Maxime, the lever is twice as easy to actuate as the RockShox Lever.
Weighing in at less than 10g more than the standard remote, the Novyparts unit keeps the adjustable speed dial and supposedly can be installed in just two minutes using the standard Reverb bleed tools. Completely made in France from CNC machined aluminum with hard anodizing and laser engraving, pricing is set at $149 or 119€ internationally. Expected to be available May 1st in Europe and May 15 in the U.S., Maxime will be on hand at Sea Otter to show off the lever and to look for distributors for the U.S. and other countries.
