Simple does it.
Dropper posts have certainly come a long way over the past few years, but the—despite countless tweaks and re-engineerings—hydraulic lines are still a huge pain in the ass to set-up and maintain. A brand like Crank Brothers knows a thing or two about simple solutions to problems that don't need to be as difficult as innovation makes them, and its Highline Dropper Seatpost applies the simple-does-it Eggbeater Pedal approach to the dropper world.
Instead of the above-mentioned, pain-in-the-ass hydraulic lines, the Highline features a hybrid system that uses a Jagwire cable to actuate a self-contained hydraulic cartridge. Set-up is simpler, function is more reliable, but it includes the smoothness of hydraulics where the post actually rises and drops. The 125mm travel is fully adjustable, and the cable itself routes internally to maintain the clean, uncluttered look of contemporary cockpits.
- A dropper post that's actually equal to enduro abuse
- Hybrid actuation is as smooth as oil but with cable reliability
- Internal routing for a tidy cockpit
- Remote switch is almost as infinitely adjustable as the post

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Crank bros dropper offers a smooth ride. Even in cold conditions, it continues to work reliably. No complaints about the cable mechanism, rain or shine.
I just got mine yesterday with no wire housing, I called CC they said go to your LBS they are cheap.
Amazon offers it at $295 and it reads "includes cable and housing"
CC gave a credit for $10 and a free two day shipping in my next order!!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I like a lot the lever, the actuation is very smooth and, after 6 months of rides it is still working perfectly. I was worried after knowing the kronolog story, but this is much better than the Reverb and the Lev I had on my last 2 bikes...
