Dropper seatposts are soaring in popularity, and the days of an internally routed design being enough to garner attention from the public are slipping into the past. In the race to improve upon an already great invention, Magura has secured the distinction of being the first company to release a wireless dropper post with its Vyron eLect Dropper Seatpost. Using proven ANT technology, the Vyron eLect is compatible with the same remote that Magura uses with its wireless suspension forks and shocks. If you're already riding with a wireless Magura fork and shock, you can use one remote to control all three components or choose to separate them and use multiple remotes. With the remote able to be mounted on either side of the bars, you have plenty of options for customization to take advantage of a one by drivetrain's left shifter vacancy or fit it in a crowded cockpit. The eLect still relies on rider weight to actually move up and down, with Magura's imperial Royal Blood hydraulic fluid providing a smooth transition as you lower and raise the seat to adapt to changing terrain. In terms of battery life, Magura states that a full charge will gain you 400 actuations of the dropper, which equates to about two months for most riders. If you happen to be caught on the trail during your 400th engagement, the seatpost does work for up to 20 emergency actuations via buttons on the post itself, so you aren't stuck riding your last climb of the day with your knees bumping into your chin. Once you need to recharge, expect about three hours for the eLect's battery to make its way from empty to fully charged in any USB port.
