    The convenience of a dropper post, with less to flap in the wind.

    Dropper posts have gone and changed the way we all ride mountain bikes, and we won’t be going back anytime soon. Even the kinda-clumsy iterations worked well enough that we were happy just to be riding faster, never mind the loop of cable buzzing our tire. And then RockShox came along with the Reverb Stealth Seatpost. The hydraulic hose on this Reverb is “stealth” routed, meaning it heads up the seat tube and connects to the post there. It’s a bit trickier for initial install, but it’s well worth it for both functional and aesthetic reasons.

    That hydraulic hose is also what enables the Reverb’s infinite adjustability — you just stop pressing the button and the post stops. No looking for the next detent, sitting down and having it drop unexpectedly, or anything like that. It works like you’d hope every dropper post would. RockShox makes it available in both 125mm and 150mm lengths — choose based on how much post is currently sticking out of your frame. If it’s less than 160mm or so, opt for the 125 length.

    Dropper Is A Real Game Changer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I added one of these to my Medium SC Bronson. The 355mm length and the 100mm of travel are perfect for me being 5'6" and 150lbs. The full hydraulic action is super smooth and incredibly useful when riding varied terrain. When dropped the seat is fully out of the way, and then at the push of a trigger It's back up to a great climbing position to be able to attack even the longest and most technical ascents.

    Once you drop you'll never stop

      Really love my Reverb. The first post had sag problems, but RockShox replaced it for free. No problems with the new post, so they have the kinks worked out. I still have an issue with the top ring (pictured) backing off from time to time, but a big wrench takes care of that issue. It will take your confidence to the next level. I don't think I'll ever be able to ride a big boy bike without one again.

      Once you drop you'll never stop

      Not impressed..

        Have only been using this post for one and a half seasons and it is already at a point of needing replacement. It already has the suspension effect sag going on with it. positive is that it works great on the bars with other sram products. Looking into other products for the future.

        Saddle Height Adjustment on the fly

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        It's not a necessity but it is nice for more aggressive riding styles. Quick connect for hose is very convenient for installation. Seatpost comes with reverb oil and syringes. Dial at lever allows you to adjust the speed of the return on dropper. If you are setting up a one by system on your bike you can reduce your bar clamps by using the lever for your left brake lever. I found myself adjusting my seat height more often on a ride. It makes riding switchbacks and technical terrain more confidence inspiring being able to get the seat out of the way.

        Do it right

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I chose the RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post for my Santa Cruz 5010. It just doesn’t make sense not to have a dropper post and I had no idea. You do hear about the issues that come up with the droppers but all in all it is way worth it. As with everything in the cycling realm you want to keep your bike mechanic friend close.

        Do it right

        Installed on Juliana Joplin

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I took my time but was easy to install on my wife's MTB (which was also bought from BackCountry). Even with tight,internal hydraulic lines, I left enough play to allow 3 or so Inches of Frame/Post adjustments. So much nicer than my mechanical, non-stealth Giant dropper post.

        Get a dropper

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This review is less about the Reverb in particular, and more about dropper posts... GET ONE. I've been guilty of slight weight weenieness in the past, and considered a dropper a luxury for downhillers that's not worth the weight going up, but now I see the light and won't build another bike without a dropper. The mobility you gain on the downhill by getting the saddle out of the way is a big boost to your confidence and fun factor.

        Luxury? It's a necessity

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I could switch out a lot of components on my bike without much second-thought, but not my Reverb Stealth. I'd put up a good fight to keep it on my bike.

        I was surprised how much of noticeable weight was added to my aluminum frame Bronson. Honestly, I could offset the weight by losing a few pounds myself.

        I'm addicted to the added benefit and you will be too! I put the 30.9mm diameter, 380mm length, 125mm travel, right on my Santa Cruz Bronson


        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I think the argument whether or not dropper posts are a good or worthy development in mountain biking has been settled (they are), so I’ll spare you and say that I’ve had two Reverbs and have never needed to service or warranty either. I’ll also re-iterate JTrue’s Pro-Tip as I made this mistake once: Order the right hand version and mount the clamp on the left side upside down. Keeps the remote trigger protected

        I have seen a few come back through the shop and have had good luck getting rockshox to replace them.

        So far so good

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        As most other reviewers have mentioned, the upgrade to a dropper post is AWESOME. Definitely the best upgrade I've ever made to a bike. This post is easy to install and you probably won't have to re-bleed the hydraulic line as part of the install as long as you're careful. I'm about a 4/10 in terms of mechanical savvy when it comes to my bike and I was able to install this in about 15 minutes with no hiccups. One thing to watch out for is the torque spec on the seat collar. If you over tighten the collar you can cause the dropper post to jam up a bit and get choppy on the rebound. Backing off the torque on the seat collar a little bit clears up the issue.

        As far as the function of the post is concerned, I've been pretty happy. I've had the post on my bike all summer and I haven't had any major issues. The rebound speed is easy to adjust and the post still locks in solid without any up/down or rotational play. The one thing that I have noticed is that if I leave my bike sitting for a while between rides, the dropper can get somewhat stuck in the 'full up' position. I've never had it totally stuck, but have had to push extra hard the first time to make sure the post drops correctly and smoothly. Not a deal breaker yet, but does give me a little bit of pause about how long it will be before I need to get it serviced.

        game changer

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        these things seriously make a world of difference, one day all bikes will come with these (i hope) but for now if you have the extra cash laying around, GET ONE! no more stopping on the trail to adjust a seat post. its all at the finger tips.

        So Far So Great

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I've had the reverb on my Nomad for about a month now and I'm very happy with it. I got the right-hand lever model and flipped it to use on my left side for a better feel. It actuates just as it should and has a very straightforward bleed-process.

        The one thing I don't like is the location of the bleed port. I understand why it's located there, but being on the bottom of the post it takes some time feeding cable through the tight frame routing seals in order to remove the post and perform a bleed.

        Lightning fast changes but good and bad.

          The dropper is really a great product and by far the best out there. Its allows for super fast changes on your riding terrain without even thinking about it once you get used to it.

          It does beat the extra time it takes to normally change a seat post for sure but if your not riding mostly descents I have to say that the weight of the post effects your riding far to much for the benefits.

          I say this because if you add 3lbs roughly to the back of any great bike its going to affect its pedaling greatly. I ride mostly XC and AM and my riding suffers from it on the XC and light AM because of the weight. I have never been a weight weanie for anything but when I added this to my bike it really changed my riding on certain terrain for the worst.

          If backcountry had their old return policy I would return it for the cable version because switching it out would be easy and fast and worth it for certain rides. Now I just put up with it but my flicking the bike around and climbing suffer from its weight.

          I recommend the post for sure but go with the standard version if you want the option of changing your riding styles and posts. For every plus there is a minus...

          I don't get this comment. 3 pounds? The thing only weighs 570 grams at most (about 1.25 pounds) and the lightest seatposts around weigh about 200 grams, less than a pound difference. You MAY feel the difference but it can't be THAT big of a difference, can it?

          Pretty damn cool!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Thinking about dropping $455 on a seatpost? Don't get carbon, get this seat dropper! It's a lot to put down on a seatpost, but so is your ass so stop complaining.

          Truth be told, seatpost droppers allow you to stay on your bike longer, and as a result, allow you to have more fun on your days away from your 9-5 office job.

          Amongst all the seatdroppers in the world, the Rock Shox Reverb is the holy grail. Durable, sexy, and adjusts like butter. If you are considering a seat post, consider yourself foolish if you do not get the Reverb.

          Love the post, too much work

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I purchased a Santa Cruz 5010 a couple months ago which came with the Reverb Stealth, and like everyone told me it has completely changed my riding. That really frustrates me, because this seat post has become a pain. The seat has locked out in the up position multiple times, requiring bleeding the system. At first I thought I was just doing it wrong, but I took it to a great bike shop and they fixed it, only to see the problem a couple weeks later.

          Great piece of kit, if you can keep it working.

          what is the minimum height of the post when fully extended? (equivalent to the height fully extended when slammed against the seat tube, or the height from the bottom of the ring in the middle to the top of the post) tks!

          Do these come with the connectmajig?

          Hey Derrick,

          The RockShox Reverb Stealth Seatpost comes with everything you need to install it on your bike frame, as long as your frame can accommodate stealth routing. By connectmajig I am assuming you are talking about the handlebar lever or maybe the seatpost clamp? Feel free to contact me directly if you have additional questions on the RockShox Reverb and I would be glad to help you figure out if it comes with what you need,
