Fox pops up into the long-throw dropper seatpost discussion with a new 175mm long version of their popular Transfer dropper. Available at two spec levels, and for both internally stealth-routed bikes and with an external routing option for older frames, the new Transfer 175 could be great to taller riders or anyone with a lot of exposed seatpost.
Fox Transfer 175, long travel dropper seatpost
Fox has added a fourth, longer travel option to their popular Transfer dropper seatpost. Now with 175mm of infinitely adjustable travel, mountain bikers with large, long-travel bikes can get even more seatpost extension for good climbing position on the bike, yet still drop it super low for the descents. The new Transfer 175 joins the rest of the Fox dropper lineup in both $344 Factory spec with a gold Kashima-coated upper stanchion, or the more affordable $294 black ano Performance spec.
Now with 100mm/4″, 125mm/5″, 150mm/6″ & 175mm/7″ versions of the Transfer there is pretty much a Fox dropper for every frame & rider size out there. Plus with each version available with either stealth internal routing or older-style external routing, pretty much any mountain bike with a 30.9 or 31.6mm seatpost diameter can fit a Fox Transfer.
The Fox Transfer droppers sell without a remote, giving buyers the option to pick one of three possible standard levers. Two Fox branded levers are available for $65 each with either a 1x left trigger replacement or a separate top-mount remote to work with double or triple drivetrain options. The third possible lever is RaceFace’s $70 Turbine R 1x remote, which also takes the place of a tradition left shifter but adds a bearing pivot & MatchMaker compatibility.
