The market has evolved since the release of the original Tellis back in 2018. And SDG says it’s listened, learned, tested, and refined to keep this new post on top.

The new version of the Tellis V2 Dropper Post features a new patent-pending low stack height head which is 10mm lower than the OG Telliis. The newer version also has side bolts that are easier to access.

The 3D forged head, which is part of the I-Beam cardle design, combines a stronger 26mm stanchion. This helps improve stiffness. It also provides overall durability and reduces overlap. The new Tellis V2 is available in 30.9, 31.6, and 34.9mm diameters.

The V2 provides one of the largest dropper travel ranges in the game – 55mm to 230mm.

The updated and improved polycarbonate keyway system now includes lower copper shims to further increase durability. This also helps with keeping the head play at bay, while still retaining its smooth stroke feel.

Additionally, offering the rider the option to reduce travel heights to help with fitment, the new simple-to-use travel adjustment shims are available in 5, 10, or 20mm, and are included with every Tellis V2.

Durability and Ease of Service

Durability was the foundation on which Tellis was designed. With IGUS bushings, a sealed Wintek cartridge and Trelleborg main seal, the Trellis virtually does away with maintenance problems that other posts experience.

When you decide to give your new Trellis V2 some attention, the V2 is designed to be easily serviceable at home. with no proprietary tools. The entire post can be “removed and torn down in under 5 minutes, even by the most inexperienced of mechanics and at no cost.”

To make things even easier, SDG provides a collection of step-by-step maintenance and service procedure videos on their website, as well as their YouTube Channel.
