Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Best switch setup if you are riding a 1x drivetrain. It replaces where your shifter switch would normally be.

Recommendation: If you are running a 1x setup get the lever that is where the shifter is designed to be. It is so comfortable and natural while riding.

Pros: Been using this post for four months now and it works like it should every time, looks good on the bike and has made me a better rider.

Cons: A little seat wiggle.

Recommendation: I'm very happy with the seat post and would recommend it.

Model/Year: LEV 125mm

Pros: Works exactly how it is supposed to every time. The rebound speed on the LEV is just right. I have had it for a couple months and have not experienced any maintenance problems yet.

Cons: I have noticed the seat wiggling a little bit as another reviewer noted. But, I don't notice it while I'm riding, only when I'm petting my bike in the garage.

Recommendation: Buy it.

Model/Year: Lev 125mm dropper post

Pros: Very nice looking
Simple cable actuator (no bleeding)
Clean install
Actuator connection makes for very clean routing.

Cons: Pressure changes/filling require removing saddle
Nothing else yet
Cable housing was cheap and permanently folded. Purchased shifter cable housing instead.

Recommendation: This is my first dropper post. So far it is working exactly how it should. Installation was a breeze following KS instructions. Like I said in cons, I used different cable housing than provided, it was sort of kinked in the packaging which made a clean routing almost impossible. Works well, exactly how it should.

Model/Year: 125 mm KS LEV 2013

Pros: Sharp looking
great cable routing
works flawlessly since Mar 13
relatively light
great clamp

Cons: Saddle wiggles a tiny bit as of late. Seems to be internal. I think its correctable
Other bikers want it.

Recommendation: This is a fantastic seat post.
