Always busy thinking up their next product, Wolf Tooth Components had a few surprises lurking about at Saddle Drive. Making its first public appearance since the Instagram post let the cat out of the bag, WTC had a Santa Cruz in the booth that was fitted with a ReMote lever… and a Rock Shox Reverb Stealth dropper. Details still aren’t available, but seeing it in person confirms our suspicions…

The fact that the ReMote lever on the bar clearly has a cable seems to confirm the fact that WTC’s Reverb kit will include a conversion from hydraulic to mechanical operation. When available, it will join the likes of the BikeYoke DeHy kit, but with WTC’s own system and excellent ReMote lever. Still no word on when this may see production, but it seems like an exciting addition to the line up.

We also spotted this new B-Rad accessory which looks to relocate the bottle cage to the left. That frees up the space to right for a storage strap to hold whatever your heart desires. Again, no details yet, but it just goes to show that the WTC team is is always tinkering…

Sweet!
Reverbs are everywhere and it’s really hard to go back the button after putting a ReMote on my other bike. Had a play with the RockShox lever but it’d just too clunky and expensive and that concave lever felt weird.

Does anyone out there know when these will be available?

Conspiracy theory: this is just a WT lever hooked up to a bike yoke de-hy. Bike yoke just started selling their posts with the lever separately so it stands to reason that they’d do the same with the hydro-cable adapter. Maybe.

Good eye Zach!

@feldy,
I can say with complete confidence that there are zero BikeYoke products on or in that bike.

@D-con,
All I can say is that it won’t be long…

Will it be compatible with the Reverbs that are still running the hosing externally?

Hey Marc,

“leaking” new stuff like this is juvenile and makes me not want to buy your products. When you make us guess what’s coming, we’re disappointed 100% of the time.

Hey i – Wolftooth didnt leak it, Bikerumor did. And isn’t that why you read Bikerumor?

Just so that it’s clear, I wouldn’t have weighed if we didn’t feel the need to correct the notion that we were using competitors’ parts. I wasn’t at Saddle Drive myself but given the number of miles we (and our competitors) put on prototypes it’s not unusual for them to be spotted in the wild, especially as more and more pre-production parts are fielded. Not that we hid it, but this bike was at a trade event, where one of our distributors would have been given a chance to ride forthcoming product.

While some may people dislike knowing about what’s on the horizon we can only hope that when our products do become available they are not only not disappointing but compelling enough to be selected on their merits.
