    Drop it like it's hot.

    When you're in the zone, ripping berms, shredding rock gardens, and dropping in on sick jumps, the last thing you want to do is interrupt the fun with a trailside seatpost adjustment at every change of terrain. Keep the fun rolling with clean frame lines with the FOX Racing Shox Transfer Performance Series Dropper Seatpost - Internal Routing. Featuring a black anodized upper post and hydraulic internals, this dropper stealthily supports your saddle to seamlessly manage transitions from screaming descents to buttery-smooth singletrack and everything in between.

    The Transfer's internal cable routing keeps everything tucked neatly away in the frame for clean aesthetics, while a Spool Valve design utilizes beefy hydraulics for easy modulation so the post always ends up exactly where you need it. As an added bonus, a tool-free cable disconnect feature makes for easy installation and maintenance.

    FOX Racing Shox offers two separately sold lever options for its Transfer dropper posts. The left side below bar mount sits similarly to a standard shift lever, adding clean symmetry to one-by systems. The left/right on bar mount sits how we most commonly think of dropper post levers, and provides clean integration with any shift system.

    • Transition seamlessly through varied terrain
    • Hydraulic internals for smooth, light actuation
    • Stealthy black anodized upper post
    • Internal routing for clean, cable-free frame lines
    • Item #FRS005N

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great dropper, easy install, and very rapid actuation. Like all droppers, the Transfer has maybe 1-3mm of side to side movement but it is unnoticeable when riding and pedalling hard. Not certain but it seems to move faster than a reverb. 3 stars because the dropper does not come with a lever or a cable. I bought the Wolf Tooth Re-mote which has been working great so far. Finally just wanted to touch on the actualy mechanism of the dropper; when the cable pulls down then it pushes on a very thin piece of metal about 1-2mm thick that looks quite flimsy considering all the pressure that it goes through. So far it seems fine, but if it breaks I'll post a follow up review.

    Switched from RockShox Reverb

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I switched to this from a failing rockshox reverb and will never look back. No more slow rising dropper post in the cold for me. The ease of setup and hassle free fox transfer is where it's at.

    Fox Dropper Posts are Fantastic!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    What a great idea to upgrade your seat post! I love this fox dropper post. Luckily we needed the switch too so it came with everything we needed. I got it for my son who is a mountain bike racer in high school and he is so stoked to have the adjustability whenever he wants to adjust. The post works great and I would recommend this to everyone.

    Pretty solid very minor issues

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Works great and operates as intended after 800 miles of weekly use over the course of 7 months so far. Initially would make a clicking sound when pressing the lever but that went away after about 3 months or so. Also initially had some very small amount of oil drip on the cable under the post but that has gone away. So some minor break-in issues. 7 months into it, the operation feels like it may have slowed down some, but overall still 90% of what it was new. I could see myself servicing it every 2 years or so with Fox. I would recommend this product.

    Easy to Use Dropper Post

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Of the mechanical dropper post options, this one seems to be the easiest to install. The actuation seems to be a bit slower than the reverb and turbine posts but it seems to be the most consistent.

    Great dropper, cable not included...

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Just ordered this dropper post and ended up buying a Wolf Tooth remote to go with it. Well, i was stoked to open the box and get it installed until i realized there was no cable included. I asked Backcountry and they said Fox ships the cable with the remotes they sell, not with the dropper post. I mentioned they may want to update the description in case others have the same experience, and they just said "Sorry, have a good day." Obviously not a big deal to go get a shifter cable to use, it just would have been nice to know this prior to ordering. So, I just wanted to mention it in case it helps someone down the line...

    Installed the dropper and it's as easy as everyone else says it is. Dropper works great with the Wolf Tooth remote. The only strange thing (and others have mentioned this) is my seat moves sideways a bit if you just twist it with light pressure while standing next to the bike. Just seems a little strange it has that kind of play and doesn't feel 100% solid. The seatpost is not moving, it is just the connection to the seat. Hopefully it'll just stay that way and not break. If so, not a big deal.

    the actual dropping works great, though. super smooth. nice you can put a little pressure on the lever to raise it slowly or just push it all the way and it will pop right up.

    Fox Transfer Post

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love this post! Awesome! Super smooth action, the internal routing is so clean, no issues installing it. Super clean looking, and flawless engagement. Highly recommended! The black is killer, and cheaper! Worthy. This replaced my 5 year old Giant Switch Contact post. Night and day difference! Wow!

    #1 upgrade to any bike

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I used to not think a dropper was hugely necessary, but after getting into riding longer rides with varied climbing/downhill, I took a friend's advice to grab one. This was actually my third dropper I tried and this was by far the best by a long shot.
    -the speed doesn't sound like a big deal but after trying 2 others that were super slow, it makes sense. You push the button, and it's there. No waiting. You spend less time thinking about your equipment working and more time having fun. That is where the price tag is coming from for this post...it's really quick.
    -this specific model has a feature that makese installing way easier than the others. The part where you cut the cable is at the bar controller, not at the post itself, so getting the perfect cable length dialed is a piece of cake. After installing 2 others, I can't recommend another dropper than this.
    -20% sale on backcountry makes this a steal!

    Arrived not workingArrived not extended

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Arrived Not fully extended, and never wanted too! The box was a little beat and it looked like The post had been removed from box and put back. The last inch of travel needed a little help. I used it a few times because I was hoping with a little use it might

    What was the outcome here? I have one doing the same thing, right out of the box. called Fox and they said to ride it for 15 hours before doing anything. not sure that's worth it. did Backcountry take yours back?

    My post is doing the same thing. I called the customer service at Fox to see what they recommended.

    This is what I was told:

    1- the cable tension could be too tight
    2- the seat post clamp could be too tight
    3- fill out their online RA form if 1 and 2 don't fix it

    Not really thrilled that Fox didn't seamed more concerned that this was happening on a brand new product.

    Happy with my "downgrade"

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I had an OEM RockShox Reverb, and rather than service it after a year, I sold it and bought the Fox. It works better than the Reverb, changes height faster, less pressure needed on lever, and isn't susceptible to cold weather issues. It net out to cost the same as Reverb service and works better. Done and done.

    So far so good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Used a few times and I like the audible thunk on both the rise and drop of the post when its at full compression or extension. Theres some slight lateral play in the saddle which Im not sure is the case for everyone but I had the same thing on my Thomson dropper so I'm thinking that's just part of dropper post in general. I don't notice it when riding at all just if you grab the saddle and turn it form side to side.

    Fox FOx FOX!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've always been a Fox fan so when it came time to build up my next bike I decided to give their dropper a try. So far it has worked pretty well. It has one major down fall though. The back of it says "transfer" so when it is in my bike it just says "trans". So if it didn't have a graphic it would be 10/10.

    Good piece of equipment with 1 big flaw

      After two months of use I have to say that the post works as I expected. This is my first dropper so nothing to compare to but...it goes up, it goes down. There isn't any sag and the control mechanism works fine. The on issue is the thumb lever. The way the cable connects to the unit is simply ridiculous. It is hard to describe but basically you have to thread a cable into a ridiculously small hole, upside down and use a very, very small allen wrench to secure it...without being able to see where the screw is. And once you have the unit installed the barrel connector actually is in the way of the whole in case you had to adjust it. It is this bad...if i were to buy another dropper for one of my other bikes I would not buy this dropper just because of this poor design at the lever.

      Best uppy downer post out there!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've been a RS fan for a long time, and have been running the reverb for a while. I was hesitant to try this out, but I have been seriously impressed! I paired this with the wolf tooth remote, and have been loving how this works! Will give update after a few months.

      Started to compress within a month

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Dropper posts in general are a little bit of "pick your poison". I opted to try the Fox Transfer out after having ridden the Reverb and Thompson's dropper. It was a great post for the first month but then it started to compress a half an inch or so when fully extended which made it super annoying while riding. You can't try to address it with more air pressure or anything either because Fox uses a nitrogen charge at ~400 psi. Immediate send in for a re-charge. I was less than happy to deal with that after 1 month so the Fox gets a "meh" in my book. Best post I've had is still the Thompson dropper - price is higher but it is a quality piece of equipment.


        I love this new post. Actuation and feel is on par if not better than offerings from RS, and durability has been outstanding so far. Setup is a little difficult. The cable and housing comes with the lever assembly and not with the post.


        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I only have a few rides on it, but so far it has been working great. Installation was straight forward and easy, when combined with the FOX 1x lever. I have used several different droppers and this transfer is my favorite so far. As long as reliability doesn't become an issue, A+.

        Works Great

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I only have a few rides on this post but am very impressed. The lever is super easy to push and the post is very smooth cycling up and down. The internal routing and infinite adjustment are a nice feature as well. Looking forward to many more miles with this dropper post.

        Caution- FRAGIL, but amazing performance

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Now that I have it installed, I love this dropper. So why the 2 star review, not 5? I literally broke 2 posts before I got a 3rd working. The issue is with the metal casting (magnesium?) on the bottom of the post that holds the cable is the thickness of a nice business card and extremely fragile. Seriously, if you drop this post, twist the post in your frame, or just look at it wrong you will break off that casting and your dropper becomes an expensive paperweight. The first post came slightly bent (damage from shipping), it broke when I tried to bend it back to straight. It was amazing how little force it took to break it. The second one, I had in the bike and it was SOOOO close to being low enough... but it was just a few mm too high. I gave it a little twist and push to get it lower, not putting much force on it at all... TWANG! It broke the casting off the bottom AGAIN. WTF!?! It broke because the cable housing was binding against the internal hose routing tube in my bike... it broke with just the twisting force of one hand on the saddle with a bit of down pressure. So fragile. When I took the post out, one side of the broken casting was still pretty tall. Just to see how strong it was, I bent it over and I was able to break it off with my thumb! Fox needs to make that thing way stronger. I get that it is hidden inside the seat tube and only needs to be strong in one direction (cable pull)... but it is just way too fragile. Mountain bike parts should be reasonably durable in all aspects.

        3rd time was a charm. I got the 100 mm version so it could go low enough for me and I was VERY careful installing it. The install is actually super simple (if you don't break it!). It is now working flawlessly. I am very happy with the performance. I have only a few rides on it, but it is safe to say that I love this dropper. I am using it with the left thumb, that is in the place of the left shifter on a 1x setup. The location is so natural, it really is convenient to use. The lever action feels great, the dropper action feels great.

        I like it more than the Rockshox Reverb Stealth that it replaced. The feel of the lever is better, the action of the dropper is comparable, the location of the lever is WAY better (thumb falls right on it like your old front shifter, where the Reverb you need to reach up a bit), and NO BLEEDING. The quick disconnect is nice too.

        Bottom line, get the post, but be extremely careful with the bottom bits. Seriously, if you drop this post on it's end it WILL break. How many mountain bike parts are that fragile?

        Big thanks to Competitive Cyclist for no questions asked replacing the broken ones. They made the process super easy and even shipped me new replacement posts while I was waiting to send the old one back. That service made me a loyal customer!

        Attached photo is of the broken casting at the bottom.

        Caution- FRAGIL, but amazing performance

        Is it a two bolt system holding the saddle? If not, have there been issues with the saddle shifting angles? Thanks!

        Hey Tony,

        It is a two bolt system - I've attached a photo from Fox's site showing it (albeit it is the Kashima coated version, but the actual build is no different). Let me know if you have any other questions on it or would like help sizing for your seat post diameter and length of travel!

        what type of cable head and housing size does this post accept. which end has the cable head the post or the lever?

        Hey Soren, it will be a shift cable used and the cable head will be at the post. See the photo I've attached too! Let me know if you have any other questions or would like help placing an order - my direct line is 801.204.4547 or email is cojohnson@backcountry.com. Cheers, Connor

        Unanswered Question

        I have had the transfer external cable for about a month and everything is fine except during particularly hard rides it sinks about an inch or so down I've adjusted the cable and can't figure out anything else to do how about it

        I am replacing my dropper and I have the KS Southpaw remote already installed. It says this post is cable actuated. Is there any reason my current remote will not work with the transfer dropper? Thanks.
