Just yesterday we saw a new hydraulic 1x thumbie dropper remote introduced for the Reverb, now Canadian dropper post and small parts maker 9point8 has debuted a new under the bar trigger-style remote for mechanically actuated dropper posts called the Digit. Designed to work specifically with their own infinitely adjustable DropLock tech in their Fall Line dropper posts, the new Digit 1x remote works for posts that use the same tech where you press and hold the remote to move your saddle, then release to lock it in place. That means it’ll work on posts like the RaceFace Turbine or Easton Haven, which license 9.8 tech or likely other similar posts like the new Fox Transfer…
The Fall Line droppers were already available with a 1x adapter that made it possible to locate their standard ThumB remote under the bar, but this newest update improves on that design with a cleaner solution and improved ergonomics.
9point8 worked with Wolf Tooth Components to develop the new Digit, and it will actually be made in Minneapolis, MN by Wolf Tooth using the same CNC construction, bearing pivot, and breakaway clamp design as their own ReMote for use with other fixed travel posts. The Digit also shares the same mount layout as the WTC ReMote, meaning it will work with their I-Spec & MatchMaker integrated mounts to fit to your Shimano or SRAM brake levers.
The new 37g Digit (including the clamp) is available as a standalone item for US$70 from today direct from 9point8 or through their retailer network. It also can be added as an upgrade to any new 9point8 DropLoc seatpost that you buy from them for just US$18 more.
