Simplicity isn't usually a word that we associate with the latest, greatest enduro gear however, Gravity's Dropper Seatpost proves that, in a discipline this gnarly, simple reliability is worth its weight in gold. Unlike the pricier, more finicky models we see failing year after year on our local trails, Gravity's Dropper isn't a fully hydraulic affair. Instead, if features a self contained hydraulic mechanism that's actuated by cable. The cartridge itself isn't serviceable, which may turn off some of the more ambitious home wrenches among us, but everyone else can rejoice. Instead of bleeding lines and worrying about delicate servicing operations, Gravity's hydraulic cartridge is designed to be removed and straight up replaced. The post is designed for internal routing, and the cable tension is adjustable. Of course, no internal mechanism is worth its salt let alone its weight in gold if its body wilts under the duress of off road abuse. The post's alloy chassis is shot peened, a process that involves firing dense beads at high velocity into the metal. These tiny impacts created a layer of compressively stressed material on the seatpost's surface, which makes the post's overall structure more resistant to fatigue by virtually eliminating the formation of microcracks.
