When you’re ripping through rolling terrain, cranking the pedals one minute and getting off the back of the bike the next, no seat height is “just right”. Reverb gives you infinite seat-height adjustment and control of your return speed in a hydraulically actuated remote package. A custom sealing system means the plush and consistent feel of this seat post won’t degrade, no matter how much the weather does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by korgy the most important upgrade for a mtb
I have 2 of them (for my Reign giant and an Ideal Hardtail) and can not imagine me riding without them on!
Had them 2 times for a flange service and everything runs smooth.
Just lubricate the before and after every ride with silicone spray!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Best bit of kit I've put on my bike.
If you are looking at buying a dropper post then don't waste your hard earned on cheaper inferior seat posts. A mate of mine uses a dropper with the lever under the saddle. He finds it a pain in the butt to use as he needs to be on a fairly easy section of track to operate the thing with one hand on the bars, or he has to stop. I have recently upgraded my AM bike with brakes, drive train and just about everything else and the Reverb is by far the best money I've spent. I ride in my local mountains with plenty of up and down hill and the ability to have the seat right up for peddling and then right down out of the way for downhill is fantastic. No more getting off to adjust my seat. All with a press of the lever on my bars while I'm still riding.
The only down side is the price but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. I have upgraded my AM bike with brakes, drive train and just about everything else over the last 12 months and the Reverb is by far the best money I've spent. I ride 2 - 3 times a week and never had any problems with it at all. There is heaps of info/videos on the net re bleeding it and it takes about 5 minutes.

This guy may be a bit pricey but it lets you cycle without having to stop to adjust your seat-post height. Safer cycling too; when you come to an unexpected sketchy bit, or super-steep hill, press the remote and all seems so much more manageable (I recently completely dislocated my A/C joint so this is now quite important to me) and enjoyable. I've only been out about 6 times but it makes me grin ear to ear every time I use it. Magic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great!
O.K. Ask yourself do you need a dropper post?
My regular routes are around Cannock Chase & I'd say that I don't really need one.
But I gave into the urges to try one & having fitted one to my Spesh Pitch Pro I love it! Being able to drop the post a little for hacking thru the woods or following the more man made routes has transformed my speed on the bike, no more stopping to fiddle around with the seat clamp. Sealing seems really good. There is a little side ways movement, but it's not noticeable when riding.
Easy to fit, just dont overtighten the seat clamp. I followed the MBR video guide to shorten the hose take your time & there should be no problems. Got mine for a great price from CRC.
The only downside for me is that the hose can be very abrasive against the frame, easily sorted with frame patches & silicon cable sleeves...

This is something I'm definitely considering installing on my bike. I've read a lot of reviews, all which seem to contradict each other. Some websites (e.g. Bike Radar) give it a 5 star rating and will talk about how well built and reliable this product is, whereas others will give it terrible ratings, saying it only lasts a month.

Dropper seat posts are certainly worth the money. Once installed to the bike you will not know how you havnt lived with out one before.
The Reverb is reliable, but what you need to remember it is a hydraulic system that needs maintained. Just like hydraulic disc brakes the post will need bled occasionally. This does not need done very often.
The post is covered by a 2 year manufactures defects warranty, so any problems within this time will be repaired if deemed covered by warranty.
