The KS LEV Ci carbon post started out as a 65mm travel dropper post for XC, now they’ve added a full range of travel options, including 100mm, 125mm, 150mm, and a massive new 175mm. It’s their premium option, with all the gram shaving details, hence the the $570-$620 price range. Details and more below…
The LEV Ci models get Lightweight cable housing, Powercordz cable and their carbon KGSL remote. Those, plus a hi-mod carbon mast and seat cradle with titanium hardware, add up to a 100mm drop version under 400g (with remote and cable), which is more than 100g lighter than the standard LEV.
They’re working on a 27.2 version, too, that’ll probably have different lengths and travel options.
The 175mm travel option arrived at that number because some other brand has a 170, so, you know, bigger is better. Look for that on the non-carbon LEV posts, too.
Not new but worth pointing out again now that the whole gravel scene is blowing up. Their road dropper post sits flush in the frame and you trim the stanchion. The seat mast clamps on and has a little bit of height adjustment should you change saddles, shoes or pedals and need to tweak your saddle height. You can also raise the main body up out of the frame a little.
